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

Heating went on yesterday - I tried to hold off.. but the consistent dampness is taking real effect, very limited sunshine last couple of weeks.

When you put your heating on will depend on so many factors, age of property, whether it is a flat, ground floor, upper floor, detached, terraced, level of time it is occupied, level of insulation, aspect, size of rooms, height, personal decision (cost etc).

My flat is part of a mostly unoccupied very large victorian detached house, its ground/first floor and exposed to the westerly gales being west facing with a west/north aspect, benefiting to some degree from sunshine in afternoon/evening, but the power of the sun diminishes rapidly now.

Nope :good:

Although to be fair, I've been up in the NW for last couple of months and long sleeves had crept out again. Returned down to the SE on Thursday night and it's still warm with dead grass down here! Even though cooler today I'm still in short sleeves with windows open at 9.30pm :laugh:

Yes, been using the heating since around 20th of September. As soon as the mornings and evenings starting becoming chilly, the heating goes on for an hour or so. 

We will probably start using the heating more often as we move through October.

I won't put the heating on till the first air frost/ground frost or dense fog.  I am getting thermal curtains and along with the blinds when it is sunny will hopefully keep the house warm as it is very difficult to keep warm.

Got the chimney swept on Thursday and it seems we will need to have a fire tonight as the house temperature is around 16c from last nights air frost despite sunshine shining through the south facing windows.

Will only need it this evening by the looks of it as next week is looking mild.

Yes, this house keeps in heat like mad in the summer, but loses it so much when it's cold. Poor insulation.

Same with our flat. Old Victorian building, so we bake when it’s 27 plus outside, then we start to freeze once the temps outside drop below 17.

Not yet, and probably won't until it falls to around freezing during the evening. Flat is so well insulated we can keep it warm just by cooking dinner!

We've even still got the windows open most of the time at the moment.

Yes, a couple of weeks ago. Old croft house, draughty, but does have decent double glazing and we insulated the upstairs rooms over the last couple of years. They are the warmest rooms in the house! If Fridays weather turns out as predicted we'll need the open fire on, there's a storm a brewing and the power may go off. It doesn't look like it'll be too cold though, so it ain't all bad!

yes. although the house stays at 22c, that now feels chilly due to our wonderful hot summer? and the fact we like some fresh air in. Only on for an hour or so at 7am so house toasty to get ready in, then it's off until the morning.
