Am trying to keep the heating off as much as possible and have invested in an oil fired rad for when we are in the main room during the day - but I'm interested to know what the difference would be between having the central heating on.
Have 8 radiators in the house in total. No overall thermostat but each rad has a thermostat on it.
Any ideas how to work out the cost? I know how much my gas costs per kwh, but don't know how to work out how many kw's my central heating will cost to run?
Just trying to judge whether we can have the central heating on a bit more especially with this cold snap.
Can't you read your meter, then run hearing for 1 hour, then read meter again. That would tell you how much gas you'd used. You'd have to then use a calculation (I think it might be on your bill) which converts the units used to kwh or price or something... However, all that would only tell you that hour. If the house was colder eg at night, theboiler would fire up more often, and use more gas.
