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.
We do the below 60 degree thing in the house too and yes the heater has kicked on.~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.~
LOL Thanks that was funnyWe 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.
