I really do need to look into some better insulation.

The indoor temp here in Teesside has not been above 17 for some time now. I refuse to put the heating back on for even 30 minutes at the end of May. Current temp in my little office (downstairs and 1 wall attached to garage) is 14.1

17.3c inside now, 10.8c outside after a low of 8c.   Hopefully can keep it around 17c for the next few days and then it should get more comfortable.

18.6c was the low this morning. It limped up to 20.2c early yesterday evening while the cooker was on and some occasional bursts of sunshine were shining through the windows on the west side of the house.


18.9c now.


It was a cold night outside with a low of 4.6c.


An injection of warmth is needed now.

Sadly the flooring downstairs is concrete, which I think aids the cooling. I'll certainly be adding to the loft insulation this year though

19C up, 17C down when I got in yesterday - perfect!


It fell to 17C up, 15C down overnight, meaning the heating came on for a bit. I'm not expecting to see it on again now until autumn, aside from the odd bit of testing that is!

Yesterday was miserable here and the heating would have been on for sure had it been working. Had the electric fire on for a few hours .


16c this morning , should be much more bearable by tomorrow.

Surprisingly, given that it was the hottest day of the year so far here, it wasn't super-amazingly hot inside.


When I got in, just after 4 PM, it was 24C downstairs and 29C upstairs - it was 31C outside, so aside from the windows for the air-con hose there was no need to open windows. It's now 29C outside, 24.5C downstairs, 33C in the back bedroom and a much more pleasant 22C in my bedroom.


There are two things worth noting:


One, it shows how much of a difference new windows make. Last year it would have been pushing 38C upstairs and 30C downstairs on a day like this, but this year the improved insulation has worked to keep the heat out.


Two, it shows how many people lack common sense - most of the houses round here have windows open as wide as they go, which is a great way of getting all that 30+C air into the house. They'd be better off keeping them closed until the air temperature drops below the indoor temperature, but it's too late now!

I hope it cools down for you soon. Those temperatures sound unbearable for inside.

Here the indoor temperature is an okay but a bit too warm 22.5°C to a rather unpleasant 25.5°C

I've opened the doors and windows to bring in the +25c air in this afternoon. The house is now very comfortable @ 24.6c in the hallway.  The remainder of the house ranges between 25c and 26c. A lovely evening to chill out with just shorts on and no T shirt.

27.5c upstairs today and 26.5c downstairs. Last night it was 24.5 in the bedroom but oddly managed to sleep pretty well. In a new build which we moved in last September so it has those ultra thick glazed windows and insulation as thick as it comes which won't help

Probably approaching 40C in our south facing dormer window main bedroom. Well at least till shortly before we go to bed when an hour blast with the Panasonic aircon will get it below 20C wink

22c downstairs and 25c upstairs now. Did get it a bit cooler last night before bed due to the cooler outside temps but warmed up once windows were closed. House will cool down quite a lot today.

28.5C upstairs 26C downstairs.


I may well think about getting air-conditioning for the upstairs of my house at some point.


Awful trying to sleep in that heat. Worst I had was when we had a full on week of 35C and over in 2020 - It got to 32C upstairs in my house.


Diabolical that was.

We maxed at 27C upstairs (probably 28C on the second floor), 26C downstairs. 25C in the basement kitchen. Quite hot for this house.

Dropping back down now towards 23-24C

I really never have much trouble sleeping unless the indoor temperature gets above 30C which is quite rare. In summer 2020 it did get to about 34C one day, as I was working from home in the bedroom with the computer fan on full blast, and the afternoon/evening sun comes right into my west-facing room to heat it up.

I'll be interested to see how our heating bills compare next winter once we have our heat pump installed. With our current electric heating we were getting through £300+ per month in the colder months, and that was before electricity prices rocketed.
