What temperature is your thermostat set to and how hot is it in your house?

Seeing as we're all talking about saving energy and whether you've got the heating on or not.

My thermostat is set to 15 degrees (altough it won't come on as the heating is turned off at the boiler)

Just got the thermometer out of a cold drawer and it's risen to 19.2 degrees now and still rising!

We dont have a thermostat due to having coal fired heating so its always nice and cosy, thermometer is showing 23/24 in the lounge, if its hot we just burn paper bricks made from old newspapers and compressed into solid blocks during the day to keep the fire going and put coal on in the evening.

I always keep it at 20

[SIZE="2"]Sounds like it's time to visit friends/ relatives/ museums/ galleries/ health centres/ cinemas/ pubs/ libraries and anywhere else that isn't your place. And, if you're really desperate, you can always go to Sellafied/ Dounray etc etc ect:-D[/SIZE]

Who said it was cold???
#28
We have central heating, but no thermostat. I'm a cheapskate, so I wont let her put the heating on until I feel cold :) (which should be sometime Novemberish and will only be on timer, not 24/7)

What's a thermostat? :-D

Have had the heating on for one hour this morning, to keep kids warm getting ready for school. Its been switched off for 3 hours now and the thermometer reads 16 inside the house. I think it might be warmer in the fridge though!:-D
#32
Heating not on yet. Log stove goes on at weekends.

Will put CH on in November with thermostat set to 18.

[SIZE=4]Savings tip.[/SIZE] (Especially if your house is terraced or semi detached)
Heat reflectors
[LIST=1]
[*]Cut large sheets of cardboard (the sort you get computers, TVs etc delivered in) to the size of your radiators (especially the ones on walls adjoining your neighbours).
[*]Cut slits in the cardboard so that it fits over the wall brackets behind the radiator
[*]Cover the cardboard with baking foil, shiny side out.- use the large size for roasting turkeys.
[*]Slide the heat reflectors into position. They will prevent your heat going through the wall to your neighbours. (Their heat will still come through to you. lol.)[/LIST]

17.5 showing on my thermostat at the moment & I'm freezing!
Heating has been on since September; an hour in the morning then from 3pm-8pm set at 20 degrees. I'm sure last year we didn't need to switch it on until October.
#34
Am determined not to end up with the bills from last winter so am tryingto keep the heating off as much as possible, its difficult though as the thermometer now reads 15.
#35
My thermometer in the conservatory hit 43 degrees before I had to open the windows as it was too hot!

It's now down to 30.4 as it's not as sunny as it was earlier.
#36
It depends where you put the thermostat, if it's in the same room as the radiators you'll need it set to 23-26, if it's in the hall then 19-21 should do it. Mine is wireless so can be put anywhere, but I generally put it at the head of the stairs where there's no radiator nearby and set it to 19 and keep all the internal doors open so the heat circulates. Also supplement with log fires most nights during the cold weather too. :-D
banned#37
moved thermostat down to 17 from 18 degrees in the morning for 1 hour, then in the afternoon down from 18 to 16 degrees for 4.5 hours. We spend most of our time upstairs though and it's usually 2 degrees warmer upstairs due to having houses each side heating us.

Found out today we also have £264 credit with E-on :lol:
