- Anyone got their heating on yet?
we have ours on , but purely because it was only put in last weekend and we want to get it working and make sure no bugs in the system.
dont really need it though.
we have discovered that the new system warms the house up much quicker so the boilers on for lots less
and with all the insulating ive done over summer the house retains heat much better than in the late winter/ springPosted 5 years agocu dubhSubscriber
Ours stays on 365 days of the year on timer with the thermostat on so if it gets cold it kicks on in the morning or evening. The disussion with the mrs is usually over the level the thermostat should be set at. She feels the cold much more than me. I can be sitting in shorts and T shirt while she has jumpers and fleeces on and still complains she is cold. To be fair we did have to get her a jumper the other week when we were in Spain because she felt cold, it was only 28 degrees.Posted 5 years agoKryton57Subscriber

For the first time in my life, I have proper central heating that works with the thermostat, properly. Is currently on and (bearing in mind Mrs K is home permantly for a year) set to –
18 from 22.00 – 05.30
22 5.30 – 7.30
20 7.30 to 16.30
22 16.30 22.00
Its a warm house and hasn’t dropped below 20 since May when we moved in.
We have Rad thermostats as well but so far the house seems comfortably warm all the time. Only been here 4 months though, so we’ve not been through a winter period.Posted 5 years ago
must say thats the approach i think ill take. TRVs on all radiators and the master thermostat
its currently set up as 04.30 – 05:45 – 20degree
5:45-16:00 – 14 degrees
16:00-22:00 – 16 degrees (we use stove at night to heat house so heating rarely kicks in )
22:00-4:30 – 14 degrees – again stove keeps pumping out heat after bed
house is twin skin cavity filed and concrete pad floor so letting it cool down fully during the day is probably a false economy i think. – alot of thermal mass to heat up again.Posted 5 years agospawnofyorkshireSubscriber
Yes, and I’m a Yorkshireman
If you were a true yorkshireman you wouldn’t have turned it on yet and would be mentally totaling how much cash you’ve saved by doing so
I lasted until December last year before turning it on, and that was only because i had someone over to visitPosted 5 years agosoobaliasMember
cant have the radiator on in the hall because the front door is draughty – so all the heat would escape.
dont argue with the logic, i have tried and failed. It was a massive win to get curtains across the patio doors, every other window has blinds and floors vary between bare floorboards, tiles or super toasty laminate.
i exercise and drink heavily in the winter.Posted 5 years ago
