Through the week, our heating is timed to come on at 5am and stays on until 8:30am, thermostat-controlled obviously. It comes on again at 3pm and stays on until 10pm, again thermostat-controlled but a little lower in the evening.
It doesn't need to be on through the night as we're in bed under a duvet or through the day because we're all out. Actually, technically it is on but it'll only fire up if the house falls below 5C, which I think is fair enough
Three bed semi, with double glazing, loft insulation and cavity wall insulation. Gas combi condenser boiler. Two electric showers per day for us and a bath for our two kids. No dishwasher. Washing machine does maybe seven loads a week, with the tumble dryer used only very occasionally.
I think we pay Â£85 a month on direct debit for gas and electricity.
