I still havent turned the heat on yet
. What usually happens is that I have to eventually turn the heat on to take the chill out in the mornings. At night it's ok if it's a bit cool in the house because we have sweaters and afgans to wrap up in while watching tv. I think by November the heat will be on alot more, at least in the mornings, and then again at night until bedtime. We use a timer for our furnace, and a timer for our water heater which is electric. Never waste heat if your baking, open the oven when done to heat the kitchen
By January, February, and March we get socked by oil bills up here, as I know many of you do too.
