  8. yes I get that Paul .But I spend every minute of my time when not at work .with Mrs b and the hound .apart from when.

  11. Sorry to hear that .Thats bad .poor old girl does not deserve that .What a country we live in .Not good ...Mike feeling angry .....
  12. Thanks again guys. Our home is a few hundred years old and luckily damp is not a problem. Considering half the house in underground! We only have a large multi burner in the living area which is 12kw. In the rest of the property we have just German manufactured electric wall mounted heaters which work just fine. However our daughter bought her first house and it's approx 30 years old and the night storage heaters look like they have seen better days. There is no gas in her area or indeed ours and no chance of Lpg due to her house being mid terrace with small garden and no back entrance. It has been interesting reading your thoughts and particularly Andyj007. Thanks for the offer of the cameras but we are in the sticks of Devon. The search continues.......
  13. Thanks Barry and Pete. Apparently infrared heating is more economic because 750w would be equivalent to around 1.5kw ? But yes looked at new night storage heaters as an option but according to Eco sites after the demise of coal electricity companies will look to do away with dual tariffs ? We ourselves have a multi burner which itself is no cheap option. Maybe because Mrs B is at home all day and when she goes to work I come home. Difficult decision.
  14. Has anyone looked into or had dealings with Infrared heating? Our daughter has just purchased her first house and it has old night storage heaters. The house is all electric. There is no gas nearby and installing a wood burner is not really an option. Have read a little on infrared but because its relatively new I am unsure? Any thoughts or first hand experience ? Thanks Mike and Mel
