It might not have done you any harm, but you really could be affecting their health by being so stubborn about it, especially with young ones.   The human body is not designed to be consistently in

I don't know why I bother to be honest, I'm trying to be helpful to you but if you want to be bloody minded about that's up to you. But don't say you weren't warned.   It doesn't hurt to turn off yo

As should everyone. As for pubs - seething cesspits of depravity and debauchery fuelled by an unfathomable desire to attain that state by spending a fortune on something you can make better yourself f

our heating is set for 6:30 every morning so we get out of bed to a warm house at 7am, and comes back on in the evening for a bit.  It certainly isn't on all day long and it is very rare i put it on any other time. For the times in between however, there is little one cuddles and her frozen blanket and a cup of something hot.

I hibernated early this year.

Am I the only one who saw the jokey tone in cheese's post?! (Well, I hope it was).

Lol, at least my humour is not completely wasted.. it doesn't bother me what level other people have when it comes to putting the heating on - but I don't see why it bothers some that I put the heating on more readily.. it isn't their money I'm using after all!

Normally don't even think about it until November, but after at least a 20C temp drop, I think we can be forgiven for sticking it on.

It's crazy how cold a house can get when no one has been in it for a fortnight.

I think it's about time we opened a new thread now to something along the lines of... Have you turned your heating off yet?  :rofl:  :hi:

 

Been on every evening and some afternoons now for last couple of weeks and even then it still drops into the low teens by morning. :cold:

Central heating being fixed today ( hopefully! ), so that surely means that the temperature will now plummet. Ach well, a girl can dream. It's been so mild here I've not needed the heating on anyway, the fire in the sitting room sufficient at the moment. From what I've seen of forecasts for the next week or so, not much is going to change so the heating can stay off and I can save the oil for when it's really needed!

The problem is the dampness, it makes a huge difference to have a burst of heat to keep indoor humidity down, at least in the evening even though without it indoor temps might still be a reasonable 17C or so here.
Here that's just a woodstove anyway with 'free' wood so no reason not to.

Open windows this time of year? No thanks far too foggy/damp and windy most days. Trickle vents on less windy days maybe.

My heating use has been minimal in recent weeks due to the mild weather but my dehumidfier has been running several hours a day. Although running the dehumidfier is still cheaper than turning the heating on. It might say 15 or 16 Celcius on an outdoor thermometer recently but I'm sure the feels like temperature must be in excess of 20 Celcius with all this humidity.

Heating hasn't been on yet in our student house. Luckily for us we live in a terrace house and we manage to steal the neighbours' heat. It'll be fleeces only for a while yet methinks.

After doing some decorating and removing radiators (and finding a leak) which depressurized the boiler, the inside temperature got down to a lovely 14.7c this morning. I had my coat on in the house, but decided to fix the leaks and get the boiler running before the family came home lol. House is now 17.3c :)

I cant bolier broke

 

Bleed radiators first time in 4yrs. Pressure dropped had the key , but the instructions not clear re topping boiler up. Then one bit dropped of and a 'grey bit thread broke' figured call a boiler engineer who will probably fix it in 5 mins and charge £129 + VAT happy days.
