Last summer, which was especially hot, maybe 20 days for maybe 6 hours a day. Winter, just in the mornings for a few hours. Also use the gas fireplace in the evenings.

Yup, definately used A/C more last year as stated by the previous poster. It was indeed a hotter than usual summer.

Thousand Oaks contains numerous microclimates. The temperature in one area of the city might be a bit hotter or cooler than in other areas. Same thing with the marine layer influence.

We live in the southernmost area of Newbury Park (Potrero Valley) which is hilly and adjacent to several canyons that lead down to the ocean. In the hotter months, we typically enjoy a cooling off from the afternoon ocean breezes, which is why it might be 110 degrees in Woodland Hills, 95 degrees in Westlake Village or Thousand Oaks, and 80-something in our neighborhood. (And down in the 60s in Oxnard!)

As for using our heater (we have forced central air), well, rarely. Really. Sometimes in the winter months we might get early morning temps down in the low 40s or even upper 30s, so a little warmth from the heater might be the ticket, but those days are fairly seldom.

During the day, throughout the year, we typically have our sliding door open to the back yard, and several windows open throughout the house, just to allow the fresh air breeze through the house. It's only on the coldest or hottest days that they remain closed. If we lived farther inland, this would not be as frequently possible.

How is the microclimate in Oak Park? I too am moving to the area for work, but I'm somewhat required to live in East Ventura county.

About the same as TO, maybe a touch hotter if living closer to the 101 on the Agoura side.

Hot on the Kanan side, a bit cooler on the Lindero Canyon side. WL blvd even better (not Oak Park but you get my point). I was literally house hunting all over the area last summer so I have the climates down. Generally the further west and south, the cooler, except not always. There is a hot bulge of air pushing west up the 101 in the summer from the valley and it reaches all the way to Westlake Village.
