Lately it's been in the 60s and 50s at night. Has anyone switched to heating mode in their house?

Yes we have switched from closed windows and AC to open windows and "Snuggle Heat" mode!

We've switched the upstairs to heat, the downstairs is still on cool. Our daughter's bedroom is upstairs and she's a toddler who hasn't learned how to sleep under blankets, so we need to keep her room at about 75-76 because she's only got pajamas on for warmth.

If you are cold yes, if you are not cold no.
What others do should not determine what you do.
Our home is 60 degrees inside no matter how hot outside or how much snow is on the ground.

Before I answer, please answer these two questions:

1) What is the current temperature inside of your home?
2) What is the desired temperature inside of your home?

Based on your response I will be able to use a very scientific, patented, trademarked, top-secret formula to determine whether or not it's time to turn on the heat. Typically the fees for such consultations are in the hundreds of dollars/hour range but I'm willing to do this one pro bono.

Nope, I usually don't turn the heating on until the first cold snap with highs in the 50s.

We seem to alternate back and forth a few times each Fall and Spring.

I have an automatic thermostat, so I don't have to switch between. I keep air set at 76 and heat at 66. My air still came on occassionally during the weekend. I did have to wear a light jacket for my daughter's early morning baseball game on Saturday, but by the time of my son's soccer game I was wishing I had on shorts.
