Air Conditioning Watch 2017: Got a new car a month or so ago, from day one the air con wasn't working, so any time there was any sun the interior was like an oven. After two visits to the garage (first time their aircon checking machine was broken) I finally got it fixed, so in celebration the car is now permanently like a fridge.

By contrast, around the house I have given up on the shorts and tshirt, and have moved on to jeans and long sleeve tops. Central heating is still a fair way off though.

It's still hitting 32°c during the day here, it hasn't rained since April. I'm wearing shorts and a T shirt, I have doors and windows open and it's 29°c in the house.
This is a little unusual, even for here, Aircon on in the bedroom tonight, it needs to change soon, we need some rain.
We have no mains water where we are, and we are running out!

I got around to replacing a few jammed and a leaky radiator valve yesterday. Instead of one leaking valve I've now got 3 so that's delayed the heating coming on for a bit longer! I should have used a bit more of the 50p a roll PTFE tape on them.

Mine went on this week stat clicked on at 16 *.
Re leaking valve's, the threaded tail that goes into the rad needs about 8 to10 turns of ptfe tape clock wise.
Then the faces of the valve need a coating of boss white on them before assembling and also smear some round the olive that makes the joint to the copper pipe before tightening.

New boiler installed last week. Heating went on for a couple of hours just to test it out. Otherwise, not going on timer just yet.

I realise I've morphed into my old man but its ridiculous.

In the office the girls set the thermostat to 23/24 degrees. - Hotter then Spain.
At home I get home and mrs has been pissing about with Hive trying to get a personal best (23 degrees) - She gets it so hot, we have to open the windows. - WTF is that about??

Ive become convince the ladies cant understand a comfortable room temp. - 20 degrees imo.

Anything below 18 degrees is too cold for me. I should have been born somewhere warmer.

Our heating is set to 20 degrees all year round so we never turn the heating off. It never needs to come on during the summer but over the last few weeks it comes on for a bit. I find by turning it up to 21 the house becomes too hot and down to 19 too chilly. Fine margins and all that.

No chance of it going on any time soon. If anyone has it on this weekend then you're mad!

Our thermostat is set to 21 for parts of the evening and even the radiators just coming on from 20 to 21 seems to make the house stuffy. At least it all works I suppose, we had to replace the thermostat due to a broken receiver earlier in the year and it wasn't freezing for three days. I said from that day that I wouldn't take central heating for granted again!

The women at work are like this. They seem to think by whacking the thermostat up to 30 the heating will work more quickly. We have air conditioning in my office and I have to turn it on to combat the heat. It's ridiculous.

Mrs put it on last night, promptly turned off and she didn't notice. This will continue for at least another month.
