Is your heating on?

One of the biggest expenditures of any household is fuel, whether that be electricity or gas.

We all know to turn lights off when we're not in the room, to not use tumble driers and to put the washing mchine/dishwasher on at night to take advantage of economy prices.

What about the heating? With the recent price increases reported from the big energy companies, it's only going to get more and more expensive.

I spent some years living south of the Yangtze river in China. South of the Yangtze there is no central heating. Some houses have air conditioning capable of providing heat, but only usually in one room.

Thinking about this now I'm back in the UK - why do we put the heating on as soon as the temperature drops? Why do people expect to be able to wander round the house in a teeshirt, keeping the summer feeling after the leaves drop? There are so many options that are so much cheaper.

Join the challenge!

We will not turn the heating on until December.
We will wear more layers in the house.
We will invest in onesies or fleece clothing.
We will save money on the heating bills!
