    Yep ours went on this week. We've got the thermostat low to keep it off as much as possible but the bathroom radiator is hot whenever the water is on so that room is nice and toasty now!

    Ours is on a timer, 30 mins in the morning and 1h in the evening - I've just turned the temp up to 20 ish (little dial thing on the wall) its been at about 12 over the summer - we have to have it on for a time each day as it does the hot water etc.
    I'm not looking forward to this winter as even turning it up has shot the cost up - got knows what its going to go up to now its on 20 plus and going to be on 4 hours a day plus as it gets colder :dohh:
     
  20. I might just put on an extra pair of socks and a jumper and live in the cold! Its tempting. Gas bills terrify me.
