Reclining in the tub last night, as I do to relax most evenings after a hard day spent shouting at people for not doing their job properly, I was happily listening to the radio when some commercials came on.

One was for British Gas and their Hive home energy management system.

In a nutshell, if you pay them £9 a month on top of your normal bill, they will set you up with a system which allows you to control your domestic heating remotely.

And the way they sell it as a good idea is by flogging the notion that you need never come home to a cold house again.

Great!

But surely this is just wasting money?

How hard is it to bang the central heating and fire on when you return home after a hard day spent shouting at people (or falling down holes / scrubbing bedpans depending on if you're Bonce / Mr Pig respectively)...?

This is a massive waste of money and (to get serious for a second) it flies in the face of current thinking regarding minimizing the burning of fossil fuels unnecessarily.

I'm surprised the government allows them to promote a product which is so inherently environmentally unfriendly.   


Am I overreacting as usual?

Complete waste of money. I don't turn the gas on when I get in anyway,I just keep my jumper on. 
Get your jumpers out. Wimps.

Don't most people adjust their timers so that when they get home the heating has been on for a while to warm up the place or is that just environmentally unfriendly me?

Exactly what I do. People are technology mad these days so this hive thing is a novelty bit of tech that makes them feel a bit more like Bill Gates I reckon.

I wear a thermal vest in winter and save a fortune on heating bills. The only good thing a hive is useful for is bees.

If you mean the "z", it's my works laptop and because I'm thick, I don't know how to make it do proper Englandish.
