Monday's Question of the Day

post #1 of 29
Thread Starter 

As it has decided to turn very cold here ive relented and put the fire on!

 

So have you started putting the heating on or got the fires going now?

post #2 of 29

I'm in the States, New Jersey.  We've had the heat on and off for about a month now depending on the temperature.  This morning, it's about 35 degrees where I am so yes, it's on!  We've even lit our fireplace a few times in the past couple of weeks. Had our wood delivery the other day to make sure we don't run out during the winter.  It doesn't heat up the whole house but nicely warms the one room we hang out in most and we like the ambiance too.

I caved and turned the furnace on in early October. I have a low cold tolerance these days. sigh.gif
post #6 of 29

We caved and turned the heat on a couple of weeks ago when we started going down into the mid-30s at night. Last night, our low was 23; today our high is to be in the mid 40s. We had frost last night. 

 

I wore my wool coat to work this morning with my scarf and my gloves. I have my long underwear top with me to change into with my sweatshirt when I walk over lunch. With that chill and that breeze, it's going to be a cold walk today. cold.gif  Can't find my ear muffs, darn it.

I dont understand your temps LOL! I know I should know them but I think because we use little numbers makes it tricky see it was  -1 here yesterday morning

American temps don't make any sense at all, don't even try laughing02.gif. But freezing is at 32 degrees (= 0 celsius) and boiling is at 212 degrees (= 100 celsius) so maybe you can get an idea of everything in between tongue.gif.

I turned the heat on a long time ago, I don't even remember. Probably early October. As usual, it was AC one day and heat the next rolleyes.gif. But some days are warm enough that it doesn't have to run; I just turned it on so the house temp doesn't drop too far at night.

Try this out.....http://www.texloc.com/closet/cl_cel_fah_chart.html

 

So your -1 C is our (roughly) 30 F.

 

And our 23 F is -5 C for you.

 

There's a method to the madness, but I don't remember the exact calculation. :)

Heat went on here in October when temps at night dropped to freezing just to maintain a civilised temperature in the house and until a couple of days ago, the heaters didn't run until after dark. Turned up the heat tis morning because the windchill is -10°C and a NW wind sucks the heat right out of this room

post #12 of 29

Our heat has been on since September, but that was not my choice. I rent half of a house and the furnace is on the other half so I have no access to it unfortunately. The people who lived there moved and turned it off but I had to call landlord to turn it back on. It was freezing in here.

Yuppers, heat is on, and the fireplace! Have plenty of wood stacked up and ready.

post #14 of 29

We've been using the furnace for about 2 weeks now, especially in the mornings. Last night it got significantly colder here. We had a fire in the fireplace on Halloween, but really a fire is welcome almost every night here, even in the summer!

Our weather has been so freaky lately, one day it's cold and the next it's very mild.  Today it's cold, I put my flannel sheets on yesterday.  I don't use blankets cuz my comforter is enough for me.

 

I have turned the heat on and off cuz of the freaky weather I mentioned.  Today I have it on but at a low temp.  Unfortunately the weather is again going to get milder by mid week, I just wish it would stay cold and be done with it, it is November already.

My fire is electric so I try not to use it as it costs a fortune to run, but I needed quick heat this morning actually all the gas and electric prices have gone up c'est la vie!

We've had our heat on for weeks now. It's really chilly at night, and today about half the people I saw outside had winter coats on.

Ash, if you use Firefox, download the Forecastfox extension. You can set it to show the current weather and forecasts for the next few days in both Celsius and Fahrenheit. For example, tomorrow's high is supposed to be 9°C/48°F.

Our heat has been on over a month now I think.  DH works outdoors a lot and likes to be comfortable when he is home.  Plus the kids sleep better and that means I'm happier too...  I don't keep it very hot; just 72 a the most.  We used to keep it at 68 but we all sleep with our doors shut so the bedrooms get cooler.  Otherwise; put on some clothing! :bigwink:

post #19 of 29
I'm a wimp, I've had the heat on. This house isn't well insulated so it loses heat/AC quickly. It's only going to the 50's at night, but again I'm a wimp.
post #20 of 29

My apartment is all electric .Heat on whenever needed. Not constant. I try not to run it all the time,we can always put sweaters on.

post #21 of 29
The heat is on, but I don't have it turned up too high. We have gas baseboard heat, plus we have a woodstove, which I haven't cleaned out yet.
post #22 of 29

It's really getting there, only turned the heater on twice last month. It'll be on a lot more in a couple days. Tis getting really chilli in Vancouver BC. Socks are doing it atm.

post #23 of 29

We do have the heat on here some days, personally I prefer it nice and cool like 65. I do need to be mindful though ass my spiders need it a bit warmer, I keep their room at 70ish. I do sleep with two or three fans going and the window cracked so our bedroom is at least cooler than the rest of the house.

post #24 of 29

Mine's been on for a couple of weeks. Once it's on it stays on, and it's set at 24C   - nice and toasty for my shivering Rex.

post #25 of 29

I keep the cat room at 68, and I noticed the heat has been coming more often to keep it at that temp.  And we've had a fire burning a few times the last month.  I'm a weather wimp, though--it doesn't much of a drop in temps for me to want a fire burning or a heater on.

post #26 of 29

I've been snuggling under my electric blanket at night.  Yesterday I had to close the windows.

post #27 of 29
We turned our heat on recently, when the weather started to cool down.

Like dejolane my apartment is all electric. I can turn the electric baseboard heaters on in individual rooms and so far have only turned the one on in the living room. Have it set low, during the night temp drops down to about 66. During the day depending on how much sun is shining the temps can get up into the 70s, have a big picture window that faces to the south. Heat was turned on in mid October after having a week of nightly lows in the 30s and temp in the apartment had dropped to 64 and was not warming up very much during the day.

We have only 1 base board heater  in the front room to heat the whole apartment ! But it works well.
