The downstairs temperature clicked down to 15 and that's triggered the heating to come on - the thermostat is set to 16.5, so it'll be on for a while. 20C upstairs, but the heat won't do much up there.

Out of interest why do you (and many other people) set the heating to come on automatically, rather than just switching it on only when you feel you need it?

20.1c to 21.4c were the early evening peaks yesterday.


A general 19.0c to 19.9c downstairs this morning. 20.7c in the bedroom.


No heating, RH's in the low 70's, no dramas, all good.

To stop mould. My house tends to develop mould in areas such as behind cupboards if the temperature falls too low.

19.8° at 09:00 today with driving rain hitting the front bay windows. Thermostat sits at 17°. No heating at all so far this autumn. On Tuesday, I was playing golf in a polo shirt & shorts. Far too mild for the time of the year.

19.3c to 20.1c downstairs this morning, 20.8c in the bedroom. Up a notch from this time yesterday.


Relative humidity in the range 71-73%.


Yesterday evenings peaks 20.1c to 21.1c downstairs, 22.0c in the bedroom.


Thermostat sits at 16c.


All this without central heating. The combination of cloudy and warm nights and sunny afternoons has been quite remarkable this month in getting us to this position.

The house has undergone quite an unprecedented warming trend over the past week.


We are now peaking in the early evenings at around 20.7c to 21.7c. This mornings lows of 19.7c to 20.3c were simply remarkable.


I'm typing away in the bedroom at the moment in shorts and t shirt with a temperature of 21.7c with a RH of 71%.


No surprises really, todays outside max temperature was 19.7c.


This weeks outside maxima since Saturday have been as follows 18.7,18.1,19.1,19.8,17.7 and 18.5.


Minima have been equally impressive 9.9,10.7,11.3,10.3,13.6,11.1 and 11.3c

Just been to the cinema. When we came out at 10:00 pm, it was 17°. It actually felt mild. Incredible. Indoors at home it's currently 21.2°. T-shirt and shorts... Even the better half commented she felt warm. No heating still.

Didn't bother with the heating this morning as 17.6c inside. Yet to spend more than £2 on any day on gas (hot water and central heating and that is before the Government discount for next 6 months) so far this autumn which I see as a great success.

I've had the fire going a few times so far this autumn - borderline as to whether I've needed to although a few mornings have been a bit chilly indoors when working from home.


Currently though it's too warm in the house - not really dropping less than 20c and topping out at 21-22c, which are window opening temps. 


Good for the heating bills I guess but would have been nice to have had some crisp chilly mornings.

19.9 C - still no use of gas. Hot water just warm enough for a strip wash but not washing up - need some sunshine today for the solar hot water
