    Re: I just turned the heat on in the house

    I don't go to work and earn money to come home and sit in a cold house. Therefore, I have never worried about when the heat got turned on (same for the air conditioning).

    Re: I just turned the heat on in the house

    I turned mine on weeks ago. Frankly even if it was just me I would have. Without much sun to warm things during the day it wasnt staying above 70 and would have been dipping into the low 60s at night and that makes my throat hurt to sleep in. Aside from that I have little kids that don't stay covered up and would be completely freezing! I maybe made it 2-3 weeks with no AC or heat on.


    Nothing to see here mods. Keep moving.

    Re: I just turned the heat on in the house

    My wife made me over the weekend. I told her if I can't have the air on when I'm hot in the summer she can't have the heat on when she's cold......of course she won.

    Re: I just turned the heat on in the house

    My wife is going to be mad because she got ready for work in the cold without the heat, I turned it on when I got up after she left for work. :)

    Re: I just turned the heat on in the house

    I'm still running the AC down here (it's been on since late march I believe). Checked the weather before I went to work at 6 this morning and the temperature was 80 with 95% humidity. Heat index will probably be between 95-100 again today. Anybody want to trade climates?

    Re: I just turned the heat on in the house

    I'm totally a heat Nazi in our house. We keep the house very cold by most standards, and it really isn't bad as your body acclimates. I consider this our acclimation period.

    Sweatshirts on while we're up, down comforters when we're not.

    Re: I just turned the heat on in the house

    I normally can deal with the cold in the house. In fact I usually love it, but with kids and a wife, I cant be selfish. Plus our house has some of the ****-iest windows youll find anywhere, so the air gets in like no other. Heat is on.

    Our apartment hasn't turned it on yet. I slept with my window open last night.

    Re: I just turned the heat on in the house

    I caved in sometime last week. Only turned it up to about 66/67 at night though and down during the day which it seems to maintain a temp in the mid 60's still without the heat kicking in. Even in the summer I hate using the AC too, usually only have it around 77 when I do so I haven't had the AC in in quite awhile lately. hate to say it but I think we're at that point the heat will have to be on nearly every night from here on out. Goodbye MidAmerican bills that were in the $70 and $80 range! I will miss you until this spring :(
