Is it cheaper to turn some of the radiators down in a few rooms and only heat a few rooms or does that man the radiators that are on have to work harder to maintain the temp IYSWIM. We are in a relatively cavernous and cold roomy place and i'm dreading the heating bills this winter. OH thinks its best to keep all of them on while i go around turning them off in the kitchen and hall etc. TIA
I don't heat rooms unless we are using them at the time - what would be the point of that ? The key to this working though is shutting all doors at all times. If you or your dcs leave doors open, then the temperature between the 2 rooms will constantly be trying to equalise itself, in which case your OH would be right.
