Turning up the Heat

So when does the heat come on at your house?

Chris has been complaining of the cold in our house and wanting to turn on the furnace. However, when I've looked at the temperature, it's been above the 65f (18.3c) where we usually have the thermostat set. This morning's temp read 60f (15.5c) and the day hasn't been that warm. The overnight low was around 38f (3.3c). My guess is that Chris will probably kick the furnace on tonight, whether I want to or not.

Next week daytime temps will be back in the mid 70s f (21c).

Our winter settings are 65 for daytime and 62 overnight.
We were at 60 for the overnight, but Chris wanted it just one degree warmer...then another. So now it's the 62.

I suppose that since the temps are below our normal settings, it does make sense to go ahead and flip the switch.
Just out of curiosity -- where do you keep your household temps? We're mid 70s in the summer, mid 60s in the winter.
Btw, I do not like winter!

We keep it at 70 when it's cold out. Our furnace has been on then back off several times already this season.

We keep it at 67. It may come on once at night. Lows are running in the 40s.

Have a nice weekend, John!
