    Gas central heating on constant or timer? 13th Feb 08 at 4:29 PM

    A bloke at work was told by heating engineer that it was better, ie cheaper to keep heating on all the time, I had heard this before, but the chap I asked said not!!

    I have an old gas central heating boiler (potterton) which I am ashamed to admit I have not had serviced for 10 years!! since we moved in!!

    I am into MSE and only put the central heating on when needed, I see no point it having it on in an am when most days we are out at work and school.

    So which is cheaper, on all the time in winter I guess,rad`s all have thermos on so could turn them all down?
