In the winter months the daytime temperatures will be warm if the sun is shining brightly, but at night or on rainy, cloudy, or windy days you could be hiking the heat up to stay warm, especially in the early morning before the sun rises. Once you live in Florida for awhile, the blood must thin and acclimate. When I first moved to Florida from Michigan, I wore shorts all winter long and laughed at others whe were wearing long pants and sweaters in the winter time. After 5 years, I was feeling cold also.

Yes, we have heaters, and yes, in the winter I will put my heat on at 66-68 degrees or so, and it kicks on fairly frequently, especially at night.

If you keep the windows and doors closed during the coldest of the winter days you can get by without having to use the heater. There were one or two really cold nights (<32F) during the last two winters where I found myself having to use it though. The further north you live in FL the more you probably will find a need for it though.

It took me about the 3rd year to actually turn on the heater in my house, only for a couple of days

I think last year we had 2 weeks of really cold weather. I had to put coats on my dogs as they don't do well in cold weather. I actually look forward to wearing warm clothes. Glad I never threw them out when I moved from L.A./Atlanta. Very seldom do I put on the heat as I'm not fond of it, but will use it if necessary. I have central air/heating. I lived in PA also - don't miss the snow/ice/freezing cold winters. Our few weeks of cold weather is a heat wave compared to PA.
