Did I ever tell you about how we lived when I was a lad...
Tee Hee !
Footprint of the house is 1782, was rebuilt in early 70's to then modern code but no central heating. We moved in 24 years ago and have enjoyed the system ever since and don't miss central heating. AGA does the kitchen and upstairs bedroom, the log stove in the other end (think row of workers cottages converted) heats the lounge and our bedroom.
It was an oil AGA to begin with but as the oil got worse and worse - no good sulphurous compounds, we converted to electric using the simple replace the Don burner with an electric element and recirc everything. The chap who did the conversion said you will get your AGA 'back'. He wasn't wrong, it is spot on now. We do have a 4kw solar in the paddock which helps and when I sell the RV12, I will be putting another 4kw and a Tesla Powerbank in..
Had to get the RV12 ref in
