    We use a small heater just to heat the room we are in a bit if it feels cold and wear a jumper.

    Still opening the bedroom windows at night, but close them up in the day.

    Got a small server in our little study atm which warms it up pretty nicely rather than the utility room it usually sits in.

    Yeah, I'm gonna start leaving jumpers lying around as subtle hints - then it's blankets :D

    Then you'll forgive me for putting mine on when it was 5C this morning.

    Mine's set to automatically come on if my flat temp drops below 18degC. Came on for a couple of days middle of last month when there was a cold snap.

    I live in uni halls. The building is new so it has been insulated to hell and back. I also live in the room above the boilers. Last night was the first night where I could sleep with the fan turned off. Still too warm for a duvet though (just using the cover on its own)

    Not on yet, though I accidentally left my bedroom window wide open today so house temp is down to 16degrees. PC and stove will heat up the bit I'm in enough for this evening though :D

    Still sat at home in a t-shirt. No need for the heating to be on. When it gets down below 5c I may consider switching on a halogen heater briefly :p

    The most of heating oil is a real burden for most, I pay £100 per month. We have been lucky this year so it has stayed nice a mild in n.Ireland.

    My wife always insisted on putting the heating on in the morning so she and the kids could get ready in the heat, I always thought this to be a waste as it takes quiet a lot of oil to heat up the house for the short time she wanted it on. I bought a oil filled radiator with a built in timer, it goes on at 6:30 for 2 hours and heats the living room only, makes it nice and warm and since that is where they spend most of the tike it's ideal.

    GRR not getting fixed until tomorrow now :mad:

    I might sleep in joggy bottoms and a top or move my microwave oven into the bedroom and stick it on 240c for 30mins before I go to bed

    I hate sleeping in the cold I wake up smelling worse than when it's summer and feel like I must wash all my bedding :(

    Moved my computer into the small bedroom, it gives out around 150W so I reckon I won't need the heating on unless it snows.

    We couldn't have the heating on if we wanted to as the boiler packed up last year. The British gas guy who was replacing our meters decided the flame looked wrong on our gas fire as well, so he condemned it :(.
