    I'm interested to know where the people who just rug up wth a jumper and blanket live? We're in the riverina of NSW and I've had the split system heating on 24 all day and am sitting here in trakkies, slippers, singlet, shirt, jumper and puffs vest and also have a blanket around my shoulders as well as one on my lap. I'm only just warm enough!!!

    Ducted heating (thru the floor) in all rooms including bathrooms We currently use it every morning for a couple hours (hub turns it on at 4.45am when he gets up for work) and most nights for an hour or two. I feel the cold a LOT so i wear heaps of layers too, and i do the dishes and have a cup of tea if im extra freezing

    Winter pjs, dressing gowns and slippers, blankets, and lots of covers on the beds. Ds4 wears a summer singlet, winter singlet, bonds suit, a long sleeve sleeping bag and a 2.5 tog sleeping bag and we get by fine.

    Oh yes I'm hearing you!
    The house is fully tiled (apart from bedrooms) the house is old too and I think it's insulated with tissue paper. It is warmer outside!
    We relocated to this town, DH was the one who picked out the rental and told me it had heating, well it doesn't lol.
    I've asked the real estate if they would put some kind of heating in, just 1 split system in the living area, they said they would but wanted an extra $30 a week to do so, insane given how much we already pay.
    It's actually hard to function in this house with the cold.

    Queensland here! Coldest we have had overnight is like 6 degrees but most nights at 10-12 so not too bad. Days are still 20-24 degrees

    Newcastle. Doesn't get terribly cold here. I'm actually dressed in just a T-shirt and shorts atm. Has not yet been cold enough to contemplate a jumper.
    I would love to live somewhere where it gets really wintery-freezing cold with snow, would be awesome!

    Reverse cycle split system a/c in our lounge room and an oil heater on low in our daughters room. I usually put my dressing gown, slippers and a blanket on before turning the a/c on though.

    I'm in bris and it gets to 8-10 degrees here sometimes overnight. House is super dooper insulated, and I have an oil heater on for the nights briefly in the girls room. Then we dress warmly.
