Here was another great Good Question that was on the other night. How do you use a thermostat efficiently?
I got a kick out of the story. The woman went around behind the man and every time he turned it up, she turned it down! I do the same thing to Paul. Don’t tell him that though 🙂 I sometimes think God could have done us a favor this way and had our body thermometers be at the same age and time. When he was younger he was always hot and as he got older he got colder and we all know, women in their 50’s are NEVER….EVER cold!!
Paul and I pretty much do what they suggested. We keep the heat down at night and when we’re not home. I never turn it up during the day and it’s almost always at 66 or 67. When he gets home at night he’ll turn it up to 68 or 69. In the summer we have it set at 70. We have separate heating upstairs and days like today, it’s 37, I don’t even have it on. I love it cold and I only sleep up there. But generally, we do what they said was the most economical way.
What about you? Do you just set it and leave it that way all the time or do you play around with it?
