I got an if-you-don't-like-it-leave message today
I wondered why a two-room apartment all of a sudden uses more heating than a five-room apartment without changing the settings. (How dare I).

It was my first ever. I agree, it's weird.
So, did you find out why it suddenly uses more heating?

Naa, that would be up to the landlord. And I didn't use more heating, the settings were the same as always.
The counter was showing error for about a month last year before they finally fixed it. They say the display showed error but the counter did it's job proplerly. Sounds a bit like the watch was doing a perfect job, just the watch hands didn't move.

Re: The First World Problem Thread

do you have a heat calculator (as in on the entry to the home) or do you have those plastic things attached to the heater?

If it's the latter, they do not measure any physical units and the price per unit can vary drastically from year to year. Had that problem back in Poland, but that is a bit longer story.

I would have to check the rules of the heating to say more. Can you show me what the counter looks like? some quotes from the heating costs calculations by your landlord would also be good.

Anyway, if that is the case, I'd advise to find a new apartment.

Yeah, that was basically the landlord's advice too.

Anyway the counter is not in the flat, it is somewhere ..... in the basement maybe. Or remote is cool these days apparently.
However, there is nothing to search really, we have all sizes of flats in this house and my two rooms - all of a sudden - needed more heating last year than the big ones. It's pretty obvious.

Actually I pondered to turn off the heating completely this winter and do it all with electric ovens (remember I only got two rooms and a bathroom and the bedroom I usually don't heat anyway). It would be interesting to see what the charge me next year.

MS informed me that my rig cannot be upgraded to win 11.
Guess a 4th gen i7 just doesn't make it.
