Into the 16's ! 


Hallway 16.8c, Dining room 16.8c, lounge 17.9c, bedroom 18.8c.


We are all out at work and school today so it won't be needed until this evening. If no-one notices the chill this evening I'll leave the heating off. I rather suspect it will get switched for a bit though.

So if we have an extended cold spell it will certainty be bittersweet. I cannot imagine how much it would cost if we had Dec 10 type temps.



I only have monthly data to compare, but looking back at the last 2 winters, my highest usage was January 21 when I used £168 of gas (at today's prices, excluding standing charges and VAT) - but that month had several marginally snowy days (ie cold and damp) plus it was lockdown, so I was at home every day.   Last winter's max was £62 (Jan 22), when I had the heating on more than usual because I had so much credit with my supplier that I could afford to put on the heating rather than get dressed

Recent winters I put heat on from 7am to 10pm from Nov to Feb or early March. Will do that from Friday as expected full sunny day bring on warmth inside to the 20C then turn on with thermostat at 20C same time so when sun goes it and drop to 19.5 inside it will switch on for short time back to 20C so less gas usage and stay this way.  Overnight with shutters closed should keep temps 19C or 19.5C so quick back to 20C next morning. This should limited to £2 a day.

I weakened and put the heating on for two hours yesterday, to raise temp to 20.6 C; now back down to 18.8 C

A warm and windy night with outside temps around 15c prevented any fall of internal temperature last night.


This morning we have 16.8c hallway, 17.0c dining room, 17.9c lounge and 17.8c bedroom.


No need for heating just yet.


The thermostat is set to 16c. It will probably trigger if we get a clear and calm night soon.

The heating finally clicked on this morning at 06:30 when the hallway temperature fell to the thermostat setting of 16c. 


A decision has now been taken to set the thermostat to 18c during the daytime, reduced to 16c overnight.


A very impressive run to get this far without it. Fingers crossed for a mild winter now.

22.6 in the S-facing living room yesterday afternoon in strong sunshine but down to 17.5 after a cold night - there'll be a bit of heating on later today.

Down to 13.8°C this morning so the heat will be on for a bit until it reaches 16.5°C. It’s a lovely morning outside albeit chilly at just above freezing.

I'm down to 15.5c today on a rather damp dreary morning.   But perfectly comfortable sitting around in a fleece top.

Probably have the heating on tomorrow     It's that time of year where washing doesn't dry on the line so I'll need it for that

Actually the thermostat is set at 16°C so the heating is now off again and it’s quite pleasant.

i was using over £300 a month last winter (electric only) which would be £450+ at today’s prices. 


I have just replaced out heating with an air source heat pump and underfloor heating although I am having some issues with the ASHP and it is still not working properly. However it does seem to be able to heat the downstairs with no problem even though we don’t have our patio doors fitted and just have a draughty sheet of plywood and polystyrene over the hole!


Only really the last couple of days I’ve had to use it as the temp dropped to 18C which is a bit cooler than my family will put up with.

16.5 downstairs (heating on, set to 16.5) and 18.7C upstairs.


The heating has been on a fair bit recently, more in the past few days than for the previous month!

ATM, an hour a day heating keeps the indoor temp hovering around 18C. There'll be a big boost if we get a sunny day with the large S-facing windows. 


Gas heating for an hour costs £1, plus of course the standing charge.

Same here when turn heat on and set at 19C so it hover often at 18.5 to 19C.  Did not put at 20 as it take longer to warm up from this current cool spell as it would take nearly 2 hours. By Thursday will set at 20C as first day of very mild weather coming to help heating boost then hope stay off for few days as long there sunshine to keep warm inside.


Combi boiler temps set at 65C for heating and 50C for hot water.


What about anyone of you set their boiler temps?
