Over here near Brevard, haven't had any need for a/c since beginning of September. Keeping most of the windows open about 8" during these beautiful fall days here in the mountains, and leaving one bedroom window open all night. Inside the ranch right now it's about 68 degrees at 8:45am. The tendrils of fog rising up through the mountain ridges are beautiful and there is a nice wet morning mist on the lawn. I'm surprised "youse guys" over there are chilly. Get some nice thinner down comforters and take off the flip flops. We do expect to turn the heat on in another week or so.

Getting close - considered it this morning - but my heat pump is SO. VERY. LOUD. when the heat is on that I use it as little as possible. Definitely cuts down on the costs given that I have it off at night despite the temperature, because it's outside my bedroom window.

Speaking of which...anybody know of a quiet one?

I turned it on last night when all three of us were chilly and the thermostat was reading 65. It was set at 68 until about 11pm, 65 overnight, then drops to 60 at 8am, so it isn't exactly like we're burning up in here.

My house is old and leaky. We've done what we can but it isn't well designed. Luckily it is also small so my utility bills are negligible year round.

Ours switched on this morning. We just have it set to switch on when it's too cold. Same for the AC.

Not even close. Maybe after the kids start whining about being cold, but I think we're a month or two away from turning on the heat here. No need yet.
