How are you keeping warm this winter

We all have different heating systems and house layout. |
The important thing it to have an area where you can keep warm at least cost. Our lounge is best as biggest radiators and itís also the kitchen.
Our main bedroom radiators turned down most of the time, all have thermostatic valveís.
Our 2nd bedroom does not need as much heat as the main one itís half below ground at the back wall. I only turn up the heating in that bedroom if doing office work. If it gets really cold we sleep there.
For us the best temperature in the lounge is about 21c, the back wall of the lounge is half below ground so that helps a lot.
So plan you cold weather living space even if you need to move furniture around.
To us if temp drops in lounge to below 19c the heating goes on.
I will read our heating fuel consumption for the month tomorrow and see what the month has cost us.
As a very last resort we have thermals from our cycling days.
In addition we have our cycling skull caps or beanies.
Very cold weather used to only last for a few days, but now, who knows after the silly summer that we had.
You just have to plan things out to try to minimise costs of heating.
Your TV is a bit of a radiator, not a lot if on, but if off you could notice the difference. Of course the TV cost money to run.
All Iím saying is plan now.
