I missing having a well-insulated flat, with passive solar heating. We lucked out in Melbourne and didn’t have to heat the flat in the winter (when it could get down to 2 C overnight), or cool it in the summer (when 40 degrees C outside only meant 30 degrees inside). Now that we are in a big, draughty house, we have to use heating. Mostly from a gas Rayburn in the kitchen (NOT an efficient way to heat/cook), supplemented with some gas central heating (can’t afford much ) and an open fire in the studio (with building site offcuts and driftwood). Not my ideal eco home….
Keep your fingers crossed. If the melting Arctic ice manages to divert the Gulf Stream, things in places like Northern Europe and Iceland could become a bit chillier!
I’d love to live somewhere where the temperature only went from 40 to 2 C. Around here, it’s up to 40 in the summer, yes, but winter will drop to anywhere from 20 to 30 below zero at night
Brrrrr! I’m not good with the cold (ironic, I know).
