Central Heating Watch 2017

Postby jastons on Thu Sep 07, 2017 3:04 pm

Our heating isn't on yet and we still have windows open around the house, but there is definitely a chill in the air and I've started to wear a jacket to walk the Dog.

I fear it won't be long.

Remains off until late January. Includes the nursery.

Cold? Put on a jumper.

Still cold? Go do some exercise.

I exaggerate (to a point), however:

a) I HATE hot houses. I have to get my parents to switch their heating off at least a day before I visit their house.

b) Central heating is a major contributor to obesity in this country.

c) Just put a f*cking jumper on.

I agree, but feel that a bit more of b) can solve c).

I flat out refuse to entertain putting it on before October.

It's cooler, but it's not central heating cool. I too loathe hot houses, and if I'm cold I just put a jumper on. I might stick the bathroom rad on so that I can dry myself with a towel that isn't cold and damp, though.

Thought we were having a 32 degree Indian summer in September?

The underfloor heating in the bathroom went on last weekend. A man has a basic right to have a 4am dump in a clement environment.

It's still tshirt and shorts for me, and the heating won't go on for at least 6 weeks.

I also wear slippers all year round, just for the comfort rather than warmth - I think it's a sign of getting old. I won't wear cardies though (sorry DC).

Loving this cooler weather....max 20 c during the day, comfortable at night. Still in shorts and t shirt. Trouble is, the mrs is a skinny cow gets cold quickly whilst i'm a fat bloke and i'm always hot.

Heating will possibly go on as soon as the first frosts arrive but it'll be on low and i'll probably be sitting out in the cold conservatory.

The heating only goes on 1st December until the last day of February , but only if it's needed .I find spending as much time as possible in the pub is a good way to stay warm in winter.

I think I may have finally trained my crowd to stop leaving the doors open when they've turned the heating on and 18 is as far as I will allow the thermostat to go.

Anyone got one of those wifi thermostat thingys? I fancy monitoring the temperature they set while I am out of the house.

With an OH from the Mediterranean region, I fear it's only a matter of time.

Otherwise I'd wait another couple of months or so, with the occasional log fire for chillier days
