Perhaps the cold amongst you could utilise this hot air?
Heating has to stay on. I'm sorry, it's too cold. What about yours?
put some more **** clothes on you daft sods. either that or do some exercise
I got in from band practice this evening, had to turn the heating off & open some windows to cool down. West Yorkshire.
Just got my estimated usage for this year, more or less double last 12 months. I was in credit by just shy of Â£200, DD still went up from 57.00 to 67.00 per month....but last qtr usage (Gas & Electric) well over my payments... Time to consider emigration I think.

Just don't go to the South Island of New Zealand - they haven't invented central heating yet, and mostly live in un-insulated* wooden houses. And that's in somewhere that gets snow in winter. Jumper-tastic.
* Actually one house I lived in did have 'insulation', there was a sheet of silver cooking foil between the wallpaper and the wood of the outside wall.
The issue here is not heating - but our atrocious UK insulation standards. I have just spoken to a self builder who use out stuff, and even in the recent -15 near Aviemore, they only turned the heating on for two hours each morning...and used a woodburner in the lounge. They have data-loggers, and the house averaged 19.4*c and it dropped to 16.1* on a cold night...
We all will need to start insulating old houses ASAP. Remember, insulation is (relative the future gas increases) very cheap at present. Draft proofing even more so.
