Today,I find it unbearably cold.I've only been here 3 months,is this the norm?The first 10 weeks were fantastic!!!I have a ceramic electric heater and can put up aircon to about 27deg.Would like a small wood burning stove but not much wall space.Any suggestions?

To the hardened Brits,is this likely last until end Feb?

And a date tonight,is it acceptable to wear a thermal vest?

Welcome to Cyprus, mikelapta. Sorry to say it does occasionally get this cold. I've been here 7 yrs now & it has been as low as 4c in the day. It's never reached 0c yet though.



We use mostly paraffin fires for heating because they are much cheaper to run than electric. About half the cost for 1 hrs heating.

Hi Mikelapta I allways find it very cold between Jan and March and no amount of heaters, electric blankets, jumpers, pjs make it warm, yes I am a wimp so I come back to the UK for my central heating. you might think why not install CH in Cyprus but its to expensive for just a couple of months use a year!

Its a bit chilly back here in the old country, but dont have to worry about switching on the central heating,good old Gordon is paying for that,or worry about the cost of electric, cheaper here than TRNC.,oreven worry about the water situation.You must be MAD,MAD,MAD.I know I was enquiring about the costof living over there with a possible view to moving there but me thinks I might just stay put and come over in the summer for hols...

Hello Mike in Lapta

Do you remember laughing when I told you to take extra heaters in your container? And an electric blanket?

I've Wintered there before! See you in Spring.

My best wishes for a Happy New Year.

Amanda..I think this is the first cold year we have had for sometime now.Very little snow over the last few years.Had some snow in November,first time in yonks,and that didnt last very long.On average I would say our winters(cold months)are not much longer than yours.It does surprise me that people do come home to the UK in the winter,thought TRNC was a12month year holiday.Must be a mythe...

Hi Michael

Just returned from the UK and believe me it was colder there, and what with all their new rules, would rather have stayed here, so happy to be back, even though I came back with a bad cold. Did you wear your thermal after all?

It is actually colder in that out because the houses here are designed to be cool. It's very pleasant out today and only a slight breeze. Just brought my washing in from the line - bet you couldn't do that in the UK

Mike I know someone who is (was ?) selling a pot-bellied wood burner for about 75. I would definitely recommend one.

I think its colder inside than out, and this is the first cold I have had in over a year, losing my voice and because of the flying my ears wont pop so nearly deaf to, great start to the new year, Hope you had a good time.

Being a brit I thought I would be able to stand cold - but these last few days have been so so cold here - not prepared for it, left hats, gloves etc in UK.

Is much colder in villa than outside. Heard we will have more rain from Sunday.

Hi scruff

I am still trying to figure out if I should buy a gas heater with one of the big bottles of gas OR a paraffin heater. which paraffin heater are you using, how much is the parafin and is it cheaper than the gas or just better in your opinion? Oh yes ....and is your parafin heater connected to a chimney or can it be moved from room to room? And finally just to bore you to tears.....where did you buy your heater and for how much?!!

If you can be bothered to answer all these questions...thank you very much



I really need to make a decision about what to buy because otherwise it will soon be summer and I will be dithering about which air con to buy!!!

cheers!

ps I have discovered that doing house cleaning actually makes me believe that the house is warm...at least as long as I am scrubbing away...

Sitting in a perfectly warm livingroom, cossy 25 degrees celsius, outside temperature -9 degree celsius, friday 02.01.2009 23:51 German (Berlin) time, and believe it or not, only heating with 1!!!!!! of our 7 installed radiators (central heating) at level 3 (half turned).



Its warm if you live in a insulated house, this one I live in is not even perfectly insulated.

Demand more from your builders! Single wall (worst case these red tuğla red briks) with non insulation, and words like "its enough for cyprus" dont count! Remember: What keeps you warm in winter keeps you also cool in summer! Stop spending fortunes on heating an cooling. Ask for more! DEMAND MORE!



Happy winter to all of you



Henrik
