For those without a thermastat on their heating...
I was reading another thread on heating and they were talking about thermastat controlled heating. Some people I know have older heaters (still working very well) but are having to self regulate the heating.
So I just wondered what you do.
Do you put the heating on: 1. as and when you feel cold 2. at set times for a set duration
If 2. when and how long?
Which do you think will be cheaper long term and more confortable for you and your child in this very cold weather?
Watching with interest as I am in the same position. At the moment I have the heating on timed (a few hours morning and evening) and then push the 1hour boost as needed. However, yesterday was freeeeeezing so had it on all day and night! But had a sore throat when I woke up. I also have a baby with a very snotty nose and want to keep her toasty warm. Am dreading the bills though!
I can't make mine go on a "low setting" as its either on or off. We have a thermostat in the hall but it does not seem to have any connection to the heating system! Also we have to top up the water level by turning the valve every now and again as it seems to lose water somewhere (but no apparant leaks). Ah the joy of moving house and then trying to figure out the appliances!
