I had the heating on last night for the first time. Its off at the moment but feeling nippy in here. Thinking, this is it now,...

How long have you had your heating switched on ?

Haven't got the heating on, and didn't put it on at all last winter, don't plan to this year either. Too expensive.

Yes, it's on.  Been on and off for a couple of weeks.

Problem is once you put it on once thats it, your effectively softend up then for the rest of winter. parents put it on yesterday. So thats probably it now. Not sure if its a good thing or not really.

Mine is on and has been for a couple of weeks. I keep the house at about 19 degrees ambient temperature.

We have it on - the cat was getting cold....

Ours has been on since I came up to uni at the end of September (at least when Crazy Housemate has been in).  Not looking forward to the gas bill at the end of the year, because Crazy Housemate thinks it's energy efficient to crank it up to 30 degrees then turn it completely off as soon as the house warms up, so we alternate between boiling and freezing.  Winds me up because I'm sure she'd feel warmer if she'd do some exercise and dare to brave a vitamin or two!

Oops, I'm ranting... sorry!  I'd better go and cool off XD

Mine's on, has been for a while really, about 6 weeks! But my house is really small so I can put it on for a couple of hours & then the house is boiling, so not os bad. I'm always cold (apart from when I'm out power-walking!) so it's slippers, fleecy socks and plenty of layers for me, heating or no heating!

Mine's been on since the end of September but with the thermostat turned low so it only comes on if it gets really cold and it's nice having warm towels off the radiator!

I like to put my undercrackers on the radiators of a morning. Nice and warm when I put them on. One of life's little pleasures - centrally heated gonads.

And socks.  There's nothing nicer than warm socks

Suppose we will put the heating on when it gets cold
28/10/2012 at 17:41
Yup, it's on. Getting chimney swept next week so we can revert to the fire soon

Heating, woodburner and fire on and off since the first real frost two or thee weeks ago. Thermostat is set at 15 degrees, which does mean that some of the other rooms can be a bit cool.

Ive had it on since July!

If the heating worked it would be on. As it is, it's warmer out tha in and I'm wearing thermals and 2 fleeces and 2 pairs of socks. Hot water bottles at dawn.
