I've just been in the Workshop to switch on the electric heating the temperature in there is zero degrees C .. According to the Smart Meter device (that the Electric Co installed for me this summer) It's costing me 77P per hour to heat the workshop.:( ..Whats it like in your part of the world?

About the same in Billingham. Smart meters make me paranoid about how much we spend on heating.

I prefer not to think about how much it's costing me. I just concentrate on the 200 winter workshop heating allowance the Government gives me each year. It's not as frightening that way.

No heat in my shop. I wear warm clothes and take parts to glue inside if it's too cold.

After a warm autumn, the cold has finally settled in here in New England. 7" of snow on Sunday, nice & white outside, low 30's F during the day. Didn't need to fire up the woodstove until the other day. Generally, I find that the faster I play, the warmer I am. ;)

No heating required year round when you live in tropical north Queensland.

My winter power bills work out at about NZ $10.00 per day for the household. No heating in the shed.

Storage heaters... 27.90 per month flat rate service charge. I get a great deal here in North Wales. And my workshop is lving room warm all year round and very dry.
