- The Christmas thermostat thread
19C here. Heating policy is to keep it set to a fairly low level which minimises the guilt when setting a higher temperature occasionally. Drops to 15C during the day and overnight.
Only problem is that someone wasn’t paying attention when setting the holiday timer and came home today to find the hot water still off and the lounge at 10C…Posted 4 years agoninfanMember
Set at 18 degrees, wasn’t used till we had the first frost
set for an hour in the morning 6.30-7.30 (normally leave about 7.45-8) and back on 4.30 till 8 pm
heating always left off overnight, with bedroom windows always part open for ventilation, hot water bottles if its a cold night.Posted 4 years agoAlexSubscriber
No idea. Ground Source heat pump and all sorts of clever things going on I don’t understand. No thermostats in the house which is heated with underfloor heating and occasionally a wood burner in one of the rooms. It’s nice and warm and that suits me just fine. I did turn the systems from Summer to Winter a while ago.
When we moved in we had Storage heaters and rubbish insulation, The first winter was so cold we ended up running fan heaters as well. One quarters bill was the same as we pay for a year now and it’s a lot warmer.
I really can’t understand why people sit around in the cold. Surely a hair-shirt warms you up ? 😉Posted 4 years ago
