Wood stove in the basement has been going for three weeks now. Once we start a constant night/day freeze(anything 32 degrees and lower), then I will turn on the furnace. Wood will keep going the entire winter, but the furnace is used for the main floor when it is colder. Thermostat is set at 65.
Sigs P-220, P-226 9mm, & P-230SL (CCW)
The thermostat has been set to 65 degrees, and it’s gets that cool at night- perfect sleeping conditions for me. The wife and kids have taken to the electric blankets, however- it won’t be long before I’m told to fire up the fireplace insert.

I still have my A/C going, and it is running on and off day and night!!! Hopefully soon, I can shut it off.

Yeah, I turned mine on a couple of weeks ago. 70 deg in the day. 66 deg at night.
We are leaving next week for our first ever "Snowbird Express", I will set the T-Stat for a 24 hour 55 deg for the winter.This message has been edited. Last edited by: Warhorse,

No. Usually not until Thanksgiving or the week before unless there's some crazy ass weather.
Men fight for liberty and win it with hard knocks. Their children, brought up easy, let it slip away again, poor fools. And their grandchildren are once more slaves.

I’m with Navy Guy...we usually try to make it to as close to Thanksgiving as we can. It’s almost become sort of a challenge for us. I’m currently in shorts and T-shirt with the A/C running in SC.

Yes, earlier this month.

I spend a good bit of time outdoors in the Winter, but I dress appropriately & don't mind the cold. When I come in the house though, I want to be warm.
We heat with a wood stove & my wife complains that it's always too hot in the house. I guess it's old age setting in, but just being "not cold" just isn't good enough anymore.

I’m a bit like NavyGuy too however with my hip replacement slated for this Friday, lit the pilot light last night just in case.
Sentiment without action is the ruin of the soul.
Help, I'm having premonitions of future flashbacks.
Only in an insane world are the sane considered insane.
Some people listen to the noise of the world,
And some people listen to the quiet.

Turned it on once, a week ago or so, then went back to AC for a day or two, then nothing at all required for a couple days.
Then back to the furnace two-three days ago. Yesterday I finally bowed to the inevitable. Opened the outside air intake, commissioned and activated the whole-house humidifier.
May have to turn the AC back on round about this coming weekend, though. Welcome to Michigan

A week or so ago. Woke up to 61* inside, SWMBO announced it was time to switch the system over. It's popped on a few times since.
