I don't know what the tog rating of my duvet is, cos I live in a metric world...

I don’t think I’ve ever seen a rating expressed as m2.K/W (Rsi) But apparently 1 tog = 0.1 Rsi.

Agreed. Looking at the ikea nl website, they just classify them as

"light warm"
"warm"
"all season"
"cool"

Highly scientific...

I don't use a duvet, they're too hard to wash and not very "adjustable". I just pile more/less blankets on the bed as appropriate.

I just stick an arm or leg out if too hot. My wife has never had such a problem (at 5’ 4” and 8st 4lb she has little thermal mass, and eats like a bird!)

We sleep under a pile of cats so we’re never cold. If we plan to use the bedroom for anything other than sleeping though, like that other thing people do in bedroom, they’re seriously annoying.

Heating came on at 5pm yesterday and The Asbestos Palace was still not up to temperature when we came home from the theatre at 10.30pm. Currently claiming 19.4 degrees so probably much the same. Mind you after a six hour hike in zero degrees it feels warm.

I think I may have posted this link before, but seeing as it's once again in the top 10 most read on the BBC news website, it's probably worth sharing again.

I was introduced to the scandinavian approach to duvets by a similar (and differing) mismatch.

The heating gor switched off a few weeks back. Been very tempted to switch back on. Thermostat which I'm sure over reads read 15 this morning and unlike yesterday when sun and cooking warmed up we had neither today.

Now it is April the heating is off until late October.   I have TOG 4.5 Duvet on my bed.  I am wearing shorts and T-shirt. If I go out I will wear a little more but still shorts.

Heating is most definitely on. WTF?

I had to light the fire.  I was blipping the CH but that costs money and the fire doesn't (likely to move house later this year and I think I'll be leaving logs in the wood store).

Same. I optimistically switched the boiler on to summer mode a couple of weeks ago, but that didn't last!

Heating not on but, with the exception of the kitchen, all of the windows in the flat have been set into their default position, in which they will remain, until next April/May - closed.
Still managed to line dry a machine-load of laundry this weekend thobut.
Having said that, I was cat-sitting for my favourite Aussie this weekend, and she managed to turn on the heating in her Rotherhithe house (where I and the cat were located), whilst she was in Cotswoldshire.
Witchcraft, I tell you.
Windows in the flat have been adjusted to their summer setting.
The Dyson fan remains, for the moment, in storage.
I have to say that today's temperature of ~24°C is about as much as I can comfortably tolerate.

Carried out the switchover for the 2 bathroom towel rails on Friday - they have electric elements in them for summer use, part of the CH during the heating system.  If only the idle plumbers had installed a simple, separate heating circuit for just the towel rails when the house was replumbed about 10 years ago.

The elements are controlled by a couple of Hive socket/plugs for timer programming.

I'm upstairs as well, cos the lounge is full of decorators, and it's still freezing.
