- ~Who's got the heating on?
I was sweating in the pub today ( drinking coffee ) whilst I waited for my son to finish his third intro to nursery.
But the season of mists and mellow fruitfulness is fickle and it’s now bloody freezing, so yes, the gas fire’s on and it looks like a scene out of “The Broons” with a haze forming as nappies dry on the fireguard.Posted 4 years agotrail_ratMember
depends how much money you want to spend LHS sticking it to a temp and leaving it is a very expensive way to run it ESP if you have a single stat fixed in your hall….
our thermostat is multiprogramable. generally the only time the heating is allowed on is at 4.30am to bring the house up to getting out of bed temp. – the rest of the time the house has to be below 14 degrees before heating will kick in – which with our insulation never happens.
we have had a couple of fires this week but its been grim wet windy cycling weather – fires good for drying out and warming upPosted 4 years ago29erKeithMember
nope not here yet but we’re right down south, I got hot cycling last night in shorts and a t-shirt. mind you all the fat\lazy\old lot in my office think I’m a freak, they had the AC set to heat during the summer, and I’m the freak 🙄
I live with 2 women.
can’t make my mind up if I envy you or pity you 😉Posted 4 years agosamuriMember
I live with a woman so yes, the heating is on.
It’s actually set to come on at 22 degrees! Don’t hate me.
If it was up to me it’d come on just as ice is forming over the water in the toilet bowl. If I don’t need to clear frost off the computer screen then I’m happy wearing a jumper and hat in the house.Posted 4 years agoprawnyMember
our thermostat is set to 17, with a timer, it comes on for a bit in the morning and evening, so it must be cold enough for it to kick in.
This, although the other day the wife nudged it up to 18. The thermostat is wireless though so I’ve put it in the living room, where it’s always warm 😈Posted 4 years ago
C’mon I live in the far North – WHAT is a thermostat???
No Wife and my Daughter nothing seedy at all, its just I used to work in an office with 5 women and they required the heating on all year round, used to drive me round the bend, sweating like a horse in the middle of Summer and they have the heating on!
User-removed, do you live in a but’n’ben?Posted 4 years agosharkbaitMember
No central heating at all but I am lighting the stove in the living room most nights which helps bump up the temp on the digital thermostat in the hall to 20(and makes it very lovely in the living room).
But it is a pretty big house and even though I’ve insulated roof and cavity walls it still seems to lose heat faster than a smaller house 😡
NW Cheshire for reference
Similar hear but thermostat says 19cPosted 4 years agomudsharkMember
Well I live in the SE so obviously it’ll obviously be far too warm for heating for quite a while yet.
A good tip is to explain to the women that by keeping the temperature down, they’ll lose weight as the body will generate more heat which burns calories. So just ask if they’re happy with their shape – they never are you know….Posted 4 years ago
