Plumberpro :

Hi. Is your mothers heating on during the day .this makes a big difference. But if your neighbours are at home too and use it in a similar way, then it would be worth looking at closer. Room stat should be around 21. Does you mother have cavity wall insulation and loft insulation , this makes a massive difference and would be free of charge
