Water freezes at 32 and below.

55 degrees is a LOT warmer than 32.

I have never had a problem with pipes freezing, my furnace has never been off for more than 10 hours straight and even as cold as it was today it was still 63 when I got home.

Pain is kicking in right now...still set at 62 but this months bill was a whopping $661. I dont know whether to cry or puke.

I have a 1,600 sq ft home built in the 80's near Mason. Every year the bills increase, but this year my high usage months (jan, feb) were just over $200 for an all electric house (heat pump). When I first moved in I got on the budget plan and it started at $200 a month, and every quarter it was lowered until it finally hit $100 a month and I went to regular straight billing. The people before me must have used a lot more electricity than I did.

Of course, you can't compare electric heat to gas heat, but I thought it might be helpful. My thermostat is on 68 most of the time and I find it very comfortable.

You can get that info by calling the utility company you will use. They should be able to give you figures for summer and winter months.
