Well, it has been getting into the 30's and even the 20's at night here so I have turned the heat on offically this year. Yuck!!! My heat is turned down very low so it has only been running at night and early morning. Guess that is ok since winter is officially here in 4 days.
Just keeping my fingers crossed that this winter is not bad weather wise.
I'm kind of like bookwormpeg, but haven't had the A/C on sincemid to late November. I've had the heat on probably four or five mornings for half and hour or so, just to take the night chill off the apartment. We're down in the 50s all this coming week, so I'll probably have to use it a little in the mornings. Probably more in January/February, then it will moving back up toward A/C.
I'm in central Florida. Still have the system switched to A/C set at 78 degrees, and it kicks on occasionally. Even when it got into the 50s at night, the apartment only dropped to 73. I wish it would get colder, I'm sick of this heat.
Central Florida too....A/C set to 77..no heat...air occasionally kicks on. Windows open at night when it got down in 40's and 50's. House still didn't get below 74 here either...That kept the house cooler during the day longer having the windows open at night.
We have gas heat plus a gas fireplace. We keep the temp at 68 during the day and 50 at night. I like to sleep very cool! The cost of gas is pretty cheap here, so i don't mind using the gas fireplace quite often. We have 1850 sq. ft. home, heated with gas, a gas water heater, and gas fireplace, and our monthly rate is about $30. Not too bad!
