With the way heating costs are soaring I can see people having to go back in time with their heating strategy. Before having central heating, as kids we would get ready for bed and dressed in the morning huddled around the solid fuel cooking range. Generally the kitchen was the room heated all day and then the sitting room in the evenings.
Any way I was wondering if people have ideas on the most cost effective way to heat one or two rooms? For example is it worth installing zones in the central heating. Going around turning on and off rads is something it's hard to keep on top off. What about installing a wood fired stove? Or is a simple electric heater to heat one room while the central heating is off a cost effective thing to do?
