It was 65 in our house yesterday afternoon, the warmest part of the day. We haven't turned the heat on, but I'm not sure how much longer we'll hold out. We were away a lot this summer and rarely used the A/C, so it will all even out. I hope.

Due to the unusually warm October we've had in the south we've hardly had our heating on. It's been like an hour occasionally on odd days (not like previous years when it would have been on for hours each day).

Ours is a 3 bedroom semi, 1900's cottage with no cavity walls. We've max insulated the loft, but that's about it.

Typically Nest says the house is currently around 15c to 18c during the day without heating which is not bad.

I will assume November to March will be different; and like last year heating bills will be eye watering!

Lovely to get an update, SLTD, very pleased to hear that you're now up to number 3 and that homeschooling is going well - what could be more educational than building a model railway?

Oh, brrr! It's been 60 degrees in our house for two days. Two more nights until we can turn the heat on. I hope I don't cave...
