    questions for homeowners/those renting homes

    During the winter months, at what temp do you program your thermostat while you're at home and while you're gone?

    For those w/ programmable thermostats, what are your settings-- sleep, at home, away from home?

    between 69 and 72 degrees. I would die of frostbite if I let the temp drop to 62 degrees.

    These days I get up around 7 am, 1/2 hour after raising the thermostat.
    The theory behind lowering the temperature overnight is that you are under the covers and can always add an extra blanket.

    at home- 67 degrees
    away and sleep- 62 degrees

    I also use the kerosene heaters, so the house is usually 75-77 degrees when I am home.

    I believe i read somewhere what its actually advised to let your house stay around the same temperature all day that way the boiler doesnt have to work extra hard to go from 62 to 70.. Its probably easier to maintain 70 all day..
