    Question Have you turned on the heater yet?

    ~We're still holding out here. I usually wait until the temperature in the house drops below 60* for more than 3 hours in the morning. It's been rather mild here this October and sunny which heats up my small house pretty well.~

    I had to turn mine on and off and on and off. The temperature here is so all over the place one day it will be 16C the next it'll be 8C, the other morning it was 0C.

    No thermostat to turn on here but we've had a fire going in the woodstove every morning (to take chill off but don't add more wood during day) the past few days. Right now it's 43 out and I think tonight or tomorrow night it's supposed to be 20. Fire for sure. Glad our first delivery of wood came.

    We do the below 60 degree thing in the house too and yes the heater has kicked on.

    We have no need for a heater here. 4 daughters at home (16, 14, 12 and 11) so our home is entirely heated by hair dryers.

    We've only had it on a couple of times so far. We're getting a little frost now so I expect we'll fire up the wood heater to help keep the heating bills down.

    I haven't cut my furnace on yet, but have used the space heater a couple of times just to take the chill off in the mornings. We're getting down into the low 40's at night, so it gets down to about 58 in the house. Supposed to go near freezing later this week, so will probably have to cut it on then, though I don't want to! lol

    We have it set to kick on when it gets below 68. It has kicked on a few times. We are having some cold nights here.

    I have used our small space heater in the living area a few mornings, but not the baseboard heat or the woodstove. Need to get firewood ordered soon!

    It's been on and off for the past few weeks. Iowa's temperature is crazy. Yesterday was in the 70's.

    Today is 45.

    No, we have not even gotten the heaters out yet. Our central A/C is still being used here and there. We typically don't use any form of heating except December and January which it is then it is just off and on and not continuous or everyday. The A/C, on the other hand, goes almost non-stop from March to October.
