The first evening of the heatwave:

Outside: 25.7C (down from 28C earlier)

Upstairs: 27.0C (window open, breeze coming in)

     (Bedroom: 24.7, the a/c is on)

Downstairs: 22.5C (windows closed, curtains drawn, as they have been for most of the day).

I think the pre-conditioning was a big success today! I'd expect the downstairs temperature to rise overnight as the bricks release their heat, but it at least gives me a fighting chance to keep things habitable tomorrow.

It's a battle I won't win on Tuesday, as I'll be at work - I do, however, have a booking at the hotel just down the road from work for Tuesday evening (meaning I won't actually earn much that day. Worth it, though, to be able to sleep.)

Been out all day which has helped the inside , 23c downstairs feels like stepping into air conditioning since it is 28.5c outside .

Have had curtains and blinds shut since 10am when it got warmer outside

Turned upstairs a/c on at 5pm and has been cutting in and out to maintain our chosen 19.5c, nice temperature to sleep in. Will probably leave it on in auto mode to maintain this temperature until Wednesday morning.

Glad we installed a/c (but can’t really do comfortable working from home without it) as we use 4th bedroom as a study, however we had the simple version, so one controller does all 4 bedrooms, as all ducted off same unit in loft, so can’t set different temperatures in each bedroom

Having an elderly neighbour round tomorrow afternoon as she doesn’t have a/c

So, on the eve of the event we’ve managed to keep indoor temperatures to 24.5C as we go to bed. Hit 26C upstairs earlier but significantly lower than the 27.5C on Tuesday/Wednesday.

Will we manage to keep it under 30C indoors this week?

Good luck with that!

On the first really hot day it's currently:

14.1C outside

18C in the living room - using the fan idea again

19.9C in my bedroom (west-facing)

22.7C in one of the back bedrooms (east-facing)

I would expect mid 30s all round upstairs this afternoon, the mission is to keep it below 30C downstairs.

(I'm expecting a high of 34/35C here today).

Slept ok last night and it wasn't too warm (23 downstairs, 25 upstairs) despite high of 30c yesterday and low of 20c last night.

Windows open now whilst it is just cooler than outside then close all curtains and windows.

Currently a pleasantly cool 27c indoors. Couple of fans on to move the air about. Perfectly comfortable.

Did you do the closed windows/curtains method?

Early evening update - it's been above 30C outside for coming up to 8 hours, and above 35C for the past four hours or so (and no sign of it dropping yet, disappointingly).

35.3C outside.

24.5C in the living room (getting that colder air in early, plus leaving the windows and doors closed all day has really helped).

24.7C in my bedroom (with the portable a/c, partly in the hallway outside)

32.4C in the back bedroom with the weather station server, and goodness knows what in the other back bedroom - the a/c hose runs through there and I've pretty much sealed the room off. It'll be well over 35C though.
