Sounds about right in terms of heating. 20 minutes of heating this morning raised the temperature of the house by just over 2 degrees (according to the Hive this equates to good heating efficiency).
I’m hoping it may not be needed after tomorrow morning for a few days a least, but as the outside temperature has been no higher than 13°C since Wednesday the heating has kicked in the last few days.
I was actually surprised, considering it's windy outside, albeit the small temperature difference would have helped.
Then again, I'm still comparing it mentally to a couple of years ago. I had draughty 40-year-old windows (old aluminium double glazing) and a 20 year old boiler which wasn't very efficient. Both were replaced late last year. Last winter was much better as a result, plus I learned that boilers aren't meant to keep going on and off every few minutes all day long!
(And as for temperatures not exceeding 13C for several days, in recent years that's early to mid November territory for here. The heating would definitely be coming on by then!)
