Heating's turned on.  11C out, 20C in.  Probably need to turn the stat down really.  When do we get some warm weather..?

Heatings not been off. It was switched from “all day” to morning and evening about a month ago. Profligate perhaps, but my wife is an 8st 77 year old, and feels the cold. Stat set to 18C.

Mrs A asked if why the heating was not on but Alexa says our sitting room is 21.5C.

I have just, in the past few minutes, pulled out of a planned skinny dip with a pal of mine. She's a hardy perennial and has been swimming throughout the winter, including when the water temperature was 2°C and the air temperature -2°C. She was perfectly understanding.

High tide is at 10.23 this evening, which would have been perfect had we been enjoying last Monday's weather instead of this. We haven't got the heating on, but are are dressed in more clothes than usual. 13°C outside at the moment, 19°C inside.
Bach without a doubt.

I think the heating would probably have come on by now if I hadn't disconnected the interface for the benefit of the landlord's elec-chickens and failed to get round to reconnecting it because heatwave.
Careful, Kim. Your sarcasm's showing...

Fired up here, the hallway dropped below 20 degrees, which is a rare occurrence in the summer months owing to the natural heat from the Hell portal below. Not sure if it came on this morning, I was busy sleeping. If there's one plus, the bedroom is cooler.

Heating isn't on, but I forgot to close the window last night, so it got down to just over 18°C this morning, it's now back up to 22.6°C. Heating is disabled for the summer. It's been cloudy and raining all day, so not sure where the heat is coming from...

Haven't heard the boiler fired up for a while.
Room with the heating has been well over the set 18C for a while, despite being north facing and the outside temperature having varied in the teens the last few weeks, garage is also warm and holding heat which might be due to lack of roof insulation and getting sunlight on the tiles most of the day (wonders what that might be useful for...)

To my mind this just shows the silliness of letting your heating be controlled solely by a thermostat, taking no notice of factors like time of day, how long it stays at that temperature, humidity, sunshine and so on. YHMV.

Indeed, so does mine, and it's cold so it came on. I think the only other variable is the fact I'm determined to wear shorts till October.

Down from ~27°C to 17 this morning. It's pissing down. Still 25° indoors, though.

I was regretting the switch to my summer weight duvet at audax o'clock this morning.

(For clarity, the regretting was happening in the early hours. The switch from Many Togs to Few Togs happened a couple of weeks ago)

My CH controller has settings for what I define as 'night' and different settings for Mon-Fri and Sat/Sun.

I'm happy with the temperature in the house come rain or shine.

Dehumidifiers are in action and have humidistats too.

Heating still not on. But have dug out an extra wool blanket as my duvet isn't warm enough.

Works fine for me, not been cold at all, and actually it's set to 14 overnight
The only improvement would be temperature controlled TRVs because in winter the north rooms are cold while the south rooms are warm and having the control unit in a north room means I'm fiddling with the trvs in the south rooms.

Relative Humidity isn't getting much below 80 round here until winter either...

4.5 tog duvet went on around the same time as the house started holding heat obtained from outside through the night rather than needing assistance from the north sea.
Even cooking I seem to struggle to use more £ worth of gas than my standing charge just now.
