I haven't, but I am feeling very cold.

I tried yesterday, but 2 seconds after it went on, the smoke alarms went off and they were LOUD. So, I just said forget it and bundled up.

Today is pretty chilly in here.

Turned them on 2 weeks ago in the evenings. You'll probably want to turn it on tonight. it is supposed to be in the 30's. I'd be concerned if your smoke detectors are going off when you turn the heat on.

Yeah, I was concerned. I know that when you turn your heat on for the first time of the year, it sometimes gives off a odor and wondered if that is what did it. The alarms are right by the vents.

Ours has been on some. It only takes a few minutes to take the chill off. Its been set at 72 but it doesn't come on that much which really surprises me. Our house seems to hold the daytime heat real well. Of course that may be a problem next June. With the wind last night, the heat was off and on more than usual. 80? Wow. We try to use this time of year to save heating dollars for cooling dollars for the Summer.

Yes. Turning the heat on for the first time each year can set off alarms. Anything that burns away with that initial blast of heat will set off the alarms. ...Open some windows or doors and let it air out. It should be ok after running the heat 5 to 10 minutes. Then try it again. As noted, you'll be too cold tonight without heat.
