    We've had the heat on a few times, like last week, when the high didn't get out of the 40's.

    No, we haven't had to turn our heat on yet, thank goodness. But we live in MS and our weather has been pretty mild. Yesterday though it was pretty warm and I REFUSED to turn the air on. We had a few nights where the temp went down to 35-37 but we managed w/o the heat.

    I am sitting here looking out the window at 12+ inches of snow. Looks like the heat is going to stay on for awhile, night times are suppose to around 17. I was hoping to just use the portable for awhile but its just too cold.

    Sunday morning it was 37 outside and 62 in my house, so we turned on the heat for a little while. The nights have been cool but the last couple of days we've been in the high 70s so I am not turning the heat on again while the days are warm, even if it's cold in the morning.

    We have been sleeping with a heating blanket and yesterday we turned on the electric fireplace in the living room. It's been chilly here.

    Last night I put the fuses back in for the heat and had to turn it on in the bedrooms. I only set it at 60 so it just comes on through the night if it is getting too cold. I don't like putting the electric heat on, but the chimney hasn't been cleaned yet so I can't put a fire on.

    No...It was reading 60 in here for a few day's straight during the past couple of weeks which is real cold for me but I didn't give in...I had my dh start the fire in the wood stove and that took the chill out of the air..However tomorrow the forcast is snow so I will probably have no choice but to turn on the heat..

    Never physically turn it off. The thermostat is set for 68 during the day and 60 at night year round. The propane furnace ran in the mornings for the last week or so.

    No, but have the heating blankets out. It got down to 60 inside but we're going to have to live with it.

    Three weeks, we've had the wood furnace going (MIL was cold). She lives next door. Our house, heat is not turned on, per se, but the circulating water makes it warm. Supposed to get snow/rain today. . . maybe I'll toss something in the crock pot - it'll also warm the kitchen/dining area.

    I've had to turn the heat on for about an hour each morning the last two days, also turned on the electric fireplace. I'm interested to see how this will effect my gas and electric bill in my new apartment, I've only been paying $10 for gas and $15 for electric monthly.
