Yep haha. Keep it around that because it gets pretty toasty up stairs during the day. I think they used cardboard for insulation down stairs lol. The temperature difference is pretty crazy, well feels that way! Complete opposite in the summer however! Avoid upstairs and hang out down stairs

It was 27 degrees earlier. I'm cold. I'm reconsidering my "no dog in the bed or on the couch" policy. Thank God it's not windy.

The thermostat is still set at 68 and the furnace has been running almost constantly.

@ Forest, a fifteen degree heat loss indoors is pretty significant here in Vegas. I don't know jack about insulation, but maybe you might want to start a thread asking about it?

^Good point about the heat loss. But, that is as the temps outside go lower overnight. I would expect some loss. I think there is a thread about what people have done to prevent energy loss and it is interesting. I have to dig it up myself because when I read what people have their temps at in the winter and what their bills are in the summer, I am seriously throwing energy out the proverbial windows!

We usually keep 66 at night and 68 during the day, and wear sweaters if necessary. If we leave for a few hours, we set it at 62, but it usually doesn't get down that far before we return home. Give yourself a year here and maybe you will acclimate like we did. Btw, we use the fireplace only in the evenings between Christmas eve and 12th night (Jan 6 this year). It's cozy and warm, but boy does it send the gas bill high!

It is supposed to be in the 20's this weekend so the heaters will be working hard.

I guess I'd rather be comfortable than stress about the money-- I'm usually around 72 in the Summer and around 74 in the Winter

The low - - - the low mind you - - - is projected to be 68 here in Miami Beach both Saturday and Sunday.

However, the high will drop from 81 to "only" 80 on Sunday.

This is why I have been thinking about getting a winter house in Orlando.
I have been going on the Orlando forum for information.
