I'm lucky

The mrs came from a house with no timers just on or off

They always put it on October half term onwards

We got hive when we moved in

Set 18 degree all year round before October half term time when of an evening we will move it up to 20 degree to keep it cosey

i've hidden the thermostat... :D

Tbf though, my place it isn't really cold at all yet. Nothing a jumper at night wouldn't solve anyway.

Jynxed it

Mrs has said it cold and put the heating on a 2 hour boost

But then little ones room is 17 degree so I suppose if the boost gets it up to 20 or something that will last all night

I dont understand this, how can 18 degrees be comfortable up until October only?
surely 18 degrees is 18 degrees whatever time of year it is?

I don't like the house dropping below 18 degrees .. its a good temp to have

but in the winter 18 degrees can be cold in the mornings at 4am if its no dropped below 18 in the hall.. so if you set it to 20 for 4am you can guarantee the rads will click on for time you are getting ready or of an evening when you just want to warm up the house for a few hours before bed

20 all year round wouldn't work because the house can keep cool sometimes and be just 19 in the summer so you wouldn't want the rads clicking on

Taters this morning. I'm wearing a jumper. I think the thicker coat will be coming out this week.

Heating on first thing and evening for a couple hours now.

Getting out the shower was not very pleasant this morning! Heating is now well and truly on!

It was somewhat parky this morning. Had to defrost the car before I could come home from work. 0 degrees at one point on the A21 just by Green St Green until M25/A20 junction where it became a roasting 1 degree. It made the heady heights of 2 degrees by the time I reversed on to the driveway.

The car was nice and toasty though, but the walk from the car to the front door not so - but thankfully my dear wife had the foresight to put the heating on.

OK, I give her too much credit. I got a text at half 5 saying 'Morning. It's bloody freezing in here xxx', so the heating on wasn't to make her husband comfortable after a long shift.

Bitch.

Was working over the weekend, the Mrs has asked me to walk the dog before work on weekends as she cant manage it with the baby.. fair enough

5am we stroll round block... Saturday was 5 degree , sunday was a nice warm 14 degree (all known by the temp when I got in the car) today back to 5 degree but luckily we going my dads after work who has a massive garden that we treat like a park so no need for walkies this morning.

brrrrrrrrrr

ive said to her as shes in and out with little one all time that ill get the heating on for 2 hours each morning so the house gets nice and warm for them... that and when the alarm goes off at 04:50 I am not shivering

Kitchen fitter removed the kitchen today, along with the boiler. Should be replaced by the end of the week, maybe early next week. Immersion heater went on for 40 minutes earlier so we had water to shower. Now we're all huddled in the front room with the fire going. It gives out almost no heat.

I have to admire anyone that sends their partner a text at half 5 in the morning, be grateful for small mercies!

Buy one of those oil fired heater things, cheap to run and kick out quite a bit of heat.
Always a good standby in case of central heating failure.
The 3k output ones work well, mine is a De Longhi.

Edit: having checked it again its actually 2.5k -more than enough.

I do have one of those oil-filled rads as it goes, but a mate's got it on a long-term borrow. Think I might have to get that back off him...

I currently live with a Greek who has decided that the resting temperature of the sun is the only acceptable temperature to live in.

Rather than put on a jumper or even socks he wears a t-Shirt and flip flops and complains he's cold. I've told him that's not how British people live when it gets nippy (put on a jumper) but he ignores it. I wanted it off and he wanted it at 24C Compromised at 20 but christ people from Mediterranean countries do not get it in the slightest.

I've got all my windows open constantly as I try not to roast, quite what the landlord thinks of the heating bill I've no idea as it was on at the height of Summer

We realised either the thermostat or boiler weren't working today when the thermostat registered 17 degrees and the radiators should have been on but weren't. Changed the batteries in the thermostat and pressed some random buttons on the boiler and hey presto, the radiators came on for the first time this autumn. It quickly became stupidly hot all round the house then cooled to a pleasant temperature.

Fortunately Mrs SBH is a rare woman who will put on an extra layer rather than turning up the heating, so it should stay bearable even now we are giving in to winter.
