    Is there a way to find out how much is it costing to put the heating on for an hour?

    If you know the amount of energy you're using, then yes: you simply multiply the kW.h you've used by the unit cost. For example, if you were using just a 3kW fan heater for one hour, it would cost roughly 45p.

    Central heating is more complicated, as it's difficult to estimate how much gas/oil you've used in any one heating 'session'.
