    Glad we’re on wood not oil! Bloody inlaws!

    Thankfully im at my own parents – and its wood from their 6kw cassette stove – its spewing heat.

    My wife regularly gets us up to 30 degrees and beyond.

    It’s the wood stove. It’s a slow build up but once it gets up to heat it just won’t stop. 26 degrees right now.

    Lovely and warm here, a combination of an 8kw woodburner and an AGA 🙂

    New controls last week and now holding a steady 21 degrees through the day and 18 overnight. The old boilers hardly needed.

    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…

    Only 23.5 here which surprises me. We have had an 8kw and a 5kw stove going full blast all day.

    It went up to 32 earlier with the doors all closed.

    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.

    Whenever I see these responses, (& inevitebly someone always pipes up with one), I think why bother having a house…
    Just live rough. Think of the extra money you could save… 🙄

    Aircon currently off and a nice airy 27C here with the doors open and a breeze

    Yep; two woodburners going all day, Aga heating the kitchen AND the CH going to top it all up. I turn the TRV in the lounge down and she turns it up so that the temperature reaches around 30 in there.

    Me, yesterday:

    Well you certainly don’t live anywhere near me, otherwise you’d be scrapping the ice off the inside of your windows this morning.

    No central heating here into our 4th year now without it.

    The log burner warms the house.

    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 ? 😉

    16 degrees here. The gf thinks it’s 20 but I’ve made a few changes to the thermo display. She seems warm enough and isn’t complaining so all is good.
