Re: Re: Any problems with top floor apartments?


Yes my parents in the UK have tried the technique of keeping the heating constantly on at “not too high” a temperature and they’ve seen a dramatic fall in bills. Apparently more energy is used in heating a place up each day than it is in keeping it at a constant temperature. Unfortunately we have a communal heating system that means we have no control of the radiator temperatures, and we can’t get the neighbours to agree to try this.

We installed new windows last summer and now our flat is too warm – we have to open windows to cool it down in winter. A ridiculous waste, but it seems some of our neighbours have old windows that are poorly insulated and they won’t change them.
