My heating is controlled by the landlord, they keep it at a 22C  which is nice, they also monitor humidity and try to keep it at maxium  50% which often fails in this apartment.

Do you have any supplemental hear in your house?  fire place, space heaters, etc. I have a fireplace, but I haven't used it in at least 15 years.  I have an electric space heater I bought the year before I had my heating system replaced, because it was limping along.

If you have central air, what do you keep your thermostat set at? 78

If you have a window unit air conditioner, do you run it constantly or turn it off occasionally?  No window units.

When the heat is on in your house, what do you keep your thermostat set at?  62 but if I had my way, I'd keep it at 60

Do you have a manual or digital thermostat?  Digital

Do you have any supplemental hear in your house?  fire place, space heaters, etc.  We have a fire place but the only time we use it is if we have company over - for a cozy feeling.  I do have a radiating electric heater like you pictured for the basement but I rarely use it.

If you have central air, what do you keep your thermostat set at?  78 but I usually have the ceiling fan in the living room running when we're there during the day and always a fan at night.

If you have a window unit air conditioner, do you run it constantly or turn it off occasionally?  We no longer have a window unit but when we did, it was in our bedroom and we only used it at night.  The rest of our house was always hot (before central a/c) but we figured as long as we could sleep good, that's what really mattered.  So, the girls camped out in our bedroom most every night during the summer.

Didn't you jack your heat up for me when I visited, Daisy?   Thank you again.   62 is freezing and 60 is brutal.   I think my 68 is too cold, but I can't afford the bill when it runs higher.

Yes, Tracy, we probably did.... we do turn it up when we have company, especially overnight guests! We also have lots of little blankets & lap quilts folded in the living room for people to use if they are cold. My girls are cold all the time too.

I find that if I don't stay cool, I have more hot flashes so it's worth it to me, plus, it helps when the bill comes in the mail! I'm so glad my hubby likes it cool too!

64 F is the lowest an rental apartment can be, if renting to young people.  75 if recomened for people over 60 and since this landlord rent out to mostely old people they have set it at 71 and if you have doctors note  they will  make sure your apartment is 75.

I like this deal.

I have a goal (if you want to call it that) every year that I try not to turn the heat on until at least November 1st. It drives Ashleigh crazy... lol.

So... yesterday when the grandbabies were at my house, Ashleigh decided to use them against me. She said the temp in the house was 59 and we should not have it that cold for the kids.... I went to feel them both and they were both dressed in warm clothes and felt nice & toasty. So, I said no... i just HATE giving up on my goal date of November 1st every year but if they had been cold, of course, I would have turned the heat on.

Ashleigh and my hubby joined forces and went against my wishes and turned the heat on. My husband said to at least turn it to 62 which is what we do all winter... so, I gave them both heck for being such wimpy weenies and told them that 3 degrees would NOT make that big of a difference! They both seemed to think it would.... but, I was not happy last night! My only comfort was Luke & Presley.... lol
