Turning on the heat… (Nov08)


My eldest son sent me a text ‘demanding’ that I put on the heating for half term. I resisted because I’d decided to hold out until November – and even then only when it was really needed………..

Five-and-a-half per cent of UK greenhouse gas emissions comes from home heating.

I don’t recommend that everyone takes the same approach as me. But I do think that a lot of people keep their homes too warm, that too much heating is wasted and that putting on an extra jersey or two is not such a great hardship.
