Have you experienced an Irish summer? Even if I only want to achieve a 15 degree summer aminimum room temperature, I still have to turn the heating on sometimes, and that is with a relatively well insulated house...

Yeah I've experienced an Irish summer... I visited in 2006. Can't understand why guys complain so much, the climate was fine.
