There’s something in this, and we bought the house knowing it would be hard to heat. At present, we have a room we can retreat to and get warm with a log burner, and at a basic level that’s all we need. Bedrooms are chilly, but actually that’s fine as long as you have a decent duvet.

Have spoken to a local renewable energy consultancy/installer to see what they think. If they promise me a warm house and low bills, I’ll be very dubious. If they can come up with a solution that keeps the house warm enough that I don’t need a down jacket, and the figures stack up, then I’ll be interested.

Thanks for all the responses above, flagged up a few things I hadn’t considered before.
