I thought about putting it on Monday evening as it was starting to feel a bit chilly, but didn't as no one in the house was complaining.

Made it to November and still not on. :scarfer:

What happened to this supposed icy blast? Had nothing below about 5 degrees in Brighton, bit of north wind as well but nowhere near a frosty speck. I assume they were including the tip of Northern Scotland to add drama.

It was cold as **** Monday first thing, and chilly in the evening.

Not so much today.

I'm looking forward to a bit of winter. Bust out the jumpers.

I've finally set mine to come on at 20 early mornings.. As far as i am aware it hasn't fired itself up yet. So it either genuinely hasn't been that cold.. or the thing doesn't work.

Much the same as Horsham. Still yet to go on.

How do you keep the temperature of your house above 20 degrees when the outside temperature is five degrees in the morning and a max of about 15 during the day? Even with good insulation I don't understand.

Anyway, I suffer from the cold so our heating has been on since late September. Our house is detached and gets cool quite quickly - solid stone walls. Seems to heat up quick enough though.

I have been thinking the same. 18 degrees on a summers day is pleasant enough, the average temperature this summer in England was 16 degrees, yet most people set the thermostat to at least 20 degrees. I wonder if that is due to thermostats not being particularly accurate, especially older ones.

The thermostat is most certainly not accurate, and as it is wireless moving it around can get you some weird results too. It also has a large number of programs so for it turn on at 20 degrees doesn't mean it will be on long enough for it to heat the house to something that is unbearable. Not in my house anyway.

We've had no boiler since monday. Hopefully being installed tomorrow or saturday morning. Looking forward to leaving it switched off until late January. Then back off again come mid February.

Had a serious frost in the Sussex villages.... -1 in Plumpton Green yet 6 degrees in Brighton on Monday.

No central heating on yet although the kitchen has underfloor heating which does keep the temp up a bit

No, that's me!
I put the log burner on for a couple of hours tonight as it's down to 14°c outside, freezing for here.

Down to 12°c now, brrrrr, :wink:
