Re: We're having a heatwave.......

Just submitted my energy readings and I used more gas this October than last. I only use gas for heating and is controlled by a programmable room stat so is on permanently. So last October warmer?

Re: We're having a heatwave.......

I've based this on cubic metres used which is not the same as kWh. Unfortunately I probably will never know the actual kWh for October as my provider billing system has been bonked for the last 7 to 8 months and I feel that I've have to do another complaint next week.

Re: We're having a heatwave.......

Something is very odd - the temperature didn't drop over night
This is the report from Hurn (near Bournemouth)

Same here by 10% and I was very surprised by that.
However it was down by 28% on 2012 so I am making progress.
