I've started wearing my hoodies in the house and have had my jumpers and boots on! We turned our heating on yesterday so our son and dog weren't cold, if it was just us we would have just put an extra layer on.

Well, I haven't gone that far, but am now wearing long sleeve tops instead of short, and last night I put a blanket over the summer duvet but will not swap to the winter one until the end of September at least. I keep hearing we are getting more hot weather in September.

The Summer duvet is still on and, although the weather has been wet and pretty foul lately, it hasn't been cold. Today the rain has stopped and the sky is cloudless. North/South differential. β˜‚οΈ 🌞 😎

I’m still surviving in a tshirt most days and no heating, but I’m sure it won’t be long as the temp has definitely dropped! I think it’s only because of pregnancy I have extra body warmth (I’m surprised you don’t feel the same way BlueOrchid!)

sarahgreen15 I'm hard to please atmπŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚I slept with no covers until now because I was too hot. Then yesterday it felt freezing in the house so I wore a jumper... then I was too cold without duvet, then got too hot again... after fun visit to midwife and another scan they brought my c section forward to next fri because the baby is rather big and over 9lbs already....

yesterday, I had a jumper on. Still cold. had to put a pj top on underneath. Still cold. Today, I've been under the duvet reading a fair bit. Not too warm still. Feels like autumn. I need to go outside and garden but it was so cold yesterday morning, I retreated in.

We went to put our heating on yesterday and the boiler just won’t have it, think it’s broke, annoying as it is only about 2 or 3 years old. Hot water still works though 😬

If the hot water still works but the heating doesn't its a thermostat issue (or maybe 3 way valve ) not a boiler issue .

Golfforall ah okay, I think the thermostat is in the boiler as there is not a dial on the wall, it’s a combo boiler. It’s way overdue a service too so should probably call someone out to look at it!

AliceBell64468 have you checked for the air in radiators? Sometimes if it hasnt been used for a while its possible that there's air bubbles somewhere in the system... also is your pressure arrow on green or red? Does it show any error code?

AliceBell6446826 days ago

BlueOrchid no I need to get a key to bleed the radiators with, the pressure shows 2 bar which is probably too high? And I read that you should bleed radiators to relieve pressure. No error codes, just a snowflake symbol which according to the book means frost peotection.

AliceBell64468 well I think our boilers are different. But yes you should try to bleed the radiators first just in case theres air bubbles in the system. On my boiler there is a valve underneath which I can close and then reopen again to increase pressure. If you're pressure is on 2 it seems like its optimal..if its 3-4 or way below 1 that's not good.

AliceBell64468 you're welcome. Hope it helps. I had similar thing recently I know how stressful it can be.. oh and when you look for the bleeding key check if you need the key with square bit or I think some have the triangle bit in them. Good luck πŸ™‚x

I have swapped my summer duvet to my winter one and I am going to get my angle boots out and my winter coat. I have also started wearing winter clothes. I went out today and a lot of people are dressed up in winter clothing. I guess we skipped autumn and went straight to winter 😞

I stopped my husband putting the heating on yesterday. Mostly cos I have lots of plants by the radiator and I didn't fancy moving them all, otherwise I reckon it'll be on.

I still haven't washed my winter coat yet so its not ready for me to wear. Weather needs to hold off as I haven't got my gloves and scarf winter ready either. I had to get up last night and put my sleeping bag on of the duvet. Might have to break the winter duvet out soon.

I’ve been wearing my jumper the last few days, but won’t be putting the heating on any time soon. Won’t be able to afford it. It’s often December before we put it on here and just wear extra layers until then, but with even less income than usual this year thanks to the pandemic I don’t know when we’ll be able to have it on.

cocolgooh bless you. I hope it will work out for you and you will be able to find another job... that blasted covid ruined things for everyone. From job loss, businesses closure, to broken up marriages, weight gain, domestic violence, to death of many 😭😭 I suppose on the plus side we're still alive and there's to hoping it will get better...😘 I got 7 yo who's prone to catch coughs during cold season and a baby on a way so even I dont want to yet but very soon I'll have to put the heating on...and honestly I wish you all the best ❀❀

BlueOrchid Thank you. I hope it'll all work out for you too. I still have a job thankfully, but my hours and income have been reduced a lot. I'm also a full time carer to two adults that I get no help whatsoever with right now, so that makes it difficult for me to work more too. I hope you and your family can keep warm this year and stay safe from Coronavirus. ❀️❀️
