I've got a wireless thermostat. So if the
missus starts to think about putting the heating
on I'm going to hide it or take it to work with me

I can give you a few years ageing, at this moment its about 17*C indoors no heating on and hasn't been on yet. Perhaps invest in some base layers. (Google "base layers")

It would be better if people could state the temperature in their abodes regarding this thread, before they put the heating on.

First thing that will go on (not on yet) is the only storage heater we have in the house that is sited in the kitchen that keeps her indoors happy when she gets up in the morning.

I haven't had the heating on yet, but if it is a choice of sitting in the house in shorts and t-shirt and the heating on, or sitting in a cold house with loads of clothes on, then having the heating on wins every time

WFH today. Heating is off, even though my wife and 7 week old daughter are in the house. I'm wearing shorts, a hooded top, and a beanie, and I'm perfectly comfortable.

The mrs was insistant on putting the heating on yesterday whilst i was at work, mostly due to having a 3 month old baby.

The thermostat said it was already 21 degrees and I've set the auto to go up to 22. That one degree of the radiators coming on for a little bit really did heat the house, the baby was ending up sweating!.

No doubts there. My beard is also entering W G Grace territory, which lends an air of the "axe murderer" to my ensemble.

How do you know your boiler has had it?
Not much that can go too wrong, PCB, Thermistor,fan etc, all of which are replaceable and depending on what make and model boiler you have, parts are generally easy to find.
I would have a second or even third opinion before I paid top money for a new boiler if I were you.
Those guys are always trying to get you to buy a new one.

Our central heating is run off a Clearview 750 woodburning stove which also does the hot water - the walls of our old house are 3ft wide in places which means even on the hottest ' summer ' days it feels cool inside .
I stopped buying coal [ it runs off coal and wood ] back in April and when I looked yesterday we still had 5 sacks left - I felled a couple of ash trees the other day along with a couple of sycamores , one narrowly missing the extension we're having built - September hasn't been great for sunshine this year [ it's normally ok ] and today is cloudy with a bit of a breeze - I like to sit about in my shorts and t shirt but until the fire gets going I may keep my trousers on [ tee hee ] .

Get some of that Colcannon , Boxty and Black Pudding down you washed down with a glass or two of Poitin . :)

Felt a chill for the first time this year on Wednesday evening - flip flops and shorts off, slippers, trousers and a hoodie on. Missus Jaye is sat here with a blanket around her and a hoodie with the hood up.

She'll be wanting rid of the summer weight duvet soon I reckon!

It was f*cking cold this morning at 6:20 when my alarm went off. So I got up and ran 6 miles to work in a vest and shorts.
