I remember sleeping at my mate's flat once and he refused to ever turn the central heating on. I slept fully dressed with my trainers and jacket on - I was still cold. I told him he was a tight git and a **** host in the morning. It was warmer outside ffs! Next time he stayed at mine I turned the rad off and opened the window in the bedroom he was sleeping in to make him feel at home - he wasn't happy.

This bloke was going down the pub last night and told the missus to put her coat on.

She asked him "are you taking me out "

He answered "Of course not, I'm just turning the heating off"

Got mine on for 2 hours in the morning, & 2 hours early evening. Seems to be more than enough to keep the place comfortable while we are there.

With a bit of luck, we should have a working boiler in the house today. Can't wait to tell the family that I won't be switching it on until it gets cold. By which I mean the internal temperature of the house is fractionally above 0K.

New boiler, actuators, filter, central heating pump, wireless thermostat, control wiring & copper, radiators drained & refilled several times and balanced.

I'd imagine it'd be quite snug in the house if I was prepared to switch it on.

Yeah. My boiler's going through it's annual autumn not wanting to work phase.

Really don't want to have to shell out a couple of bags on a new one.

Tried it just now. Performance is remarkable, within a few minutes of coming on the entire house was hotter than it's ever been.

Fortunately, my family are all out, so they wouldn't become accustomed to the warmth.

Love a cold house.

Me and my missus sometimes sit there and you can see vapour on our breaths, no word of a lie.
We're happy with that and find it far more comfortable to be in a cold environment, being warmed by duvets, blankets, pillows, hoodies etc than sitting in a warm environment.
Absolutely detest being in overly warm environments - saps the life out of you, makes you moody, gives you headache. Just horrible.
My house now and any houses in the future will never be 'cosy'.

When we do need to put the heating on, it warms up rapidly, as we're housed in from all sides by other properties, so we get a lot of the warmth from them, especially downstairs who have an open fire running, which also warms through our chimney breast in turn.

Basically, if it gets too cold, then they warm us up :D
Also, as it's a small property, just cooking or boiling a kettle can give heat in the place.

I also find it easier to get up in the morning when it's cold.

Edit - but yes, still hasn't been on this year.

Boiler still on strike. Not looking good. Might have to start hitting it with a hammer, or else start some ad hoc plumbing work.
