5¼ hours of heating yesterday, just to maintain 16.5C (aside from the time I was out of the house, when it fell to 15).

That'll have been expensive, but worth it to keep the mould at bay!

As alluded to earlier in the thread, wet and windy days cost far more than cold, sunny and calm days.

Currently 12.4°C inside (as I accidentally switched the app to “protect” mode overnight). Unsurprisingly the heat is on now.

We are getting used to a more insulated home having had a new front door and cavity wall insulation fitted recently. We also had the hot water cylinder, thermostats and valves replaced and a boiler service carried out.

It is very noticeable that the indoor temperature does not fluctuate as much as it used to and is stable throughout the day. Our heating runs for a couple of hours in the morning and the same in the evening and that seems to be sufficient to keep the house comfortable inside. It is noticeable that the boiler runs much less than it used to when the heating is on.

I will be very interested to see what our gas usage is over the winter compared to last year.

Late November update.

Thermostat set to 18c between 6am and 7pm, dropped back to 14c overnight.

At 6am the temperature sits around 16.5c to 16.7c most mornings, therefore it only needs about an hour to get the house up to 18c. Thereafter the radiators remain on with a gentle warmth from them.  Usage therefore remains relatively low.

I'm finding light breezes are key to maintaining overnight warmth. One morning earlier in the week with a strong and cool NW'ly wind blowing the starting temperature was a chilly 15.7c.

Today was a cold winter's day, High 3c, Low -1c . We were in all day.  Happy that spent £5.65 on gas, that gives confidence that it won't be ridiculous amounts most of the winter unless of course we get another Dec 10.

It is 19C in the living room and 19.5C in the hallway.  I live in a cold maisonette flat and even with double glazing and the heating it does not get warm.

The office at the bottom of the garden currently an uncomfortably finger numbing 7C. I’ve lent the electric heater to a neighbour whose boiler packed up two days ago.

The house that faces south is pleasant enough at 15.5C. The low level sun at this time of the provides some warmth in the living room. The back garden receives no sun at this time of the year and the thermometer tells me it’s 1C. A proper full on, bird bath freezing all night frost I think coming up in a few hours.
