Well...This probably doesn't count now that I think of it. We did have the heat on the rest of the house because we had a baby. Our bedroom's heat was turn off.

At this moment the thermostat is set at 68 for heat and 83 for AC. The house is at 74 with neither one on.

The heat I predict will come on this Friday night for many of us with a low of 32 predicted.

I think you're probably right. It's a little on the cool side in my house (I think it was 73 when I looked last night before bed), but nothing unbearable yet. Still trying to avoid heat, but I think I'll have to give in on Friday.

I turned mine on last night. Could've gone a few more days, but with the forecast being around freezing, I thought it a good test. My house was 65f inside, so I set it to 66 (and left it there). Just didn't want to get to Friday and find out there was a problem. (It's my first winter in the house...)

I had to turn the upstairs heat on Monday morning for the kids. My oldest's room is above the garage and it gets really cold in there (it was 40 degrees outside). My room is on the main floor, and haven't turned the heat on yet. In fact, I'm still sleeping with my ceiling fan on.

Wife turned it on last evening. If it was me, we could have gone longer. She was sitting on the couch watching TV in jeans, a long sleeve shirt, and a polartek jacket. I was in shorts, a t-shirt, and no shoes or socks.

I turned mine on for just a bit last night. It was cold, dark, felt damp... and husband was traveling. The temp was 62 inside, so much of the day it was warmer outside. Opening the doors and windows didn't help though as the house is completely shaded until the leaves fall. I brought it up to 65 and turned it off again. Been fine since then, and it's lovely today!! I have the back door open again
