  • We turned ours on yestersay. It was 64 in the house plus it was raining so the damp made it feel even colder. I'm in south western Ontario, almost due north across the lake from you lol.

  • We turned it on last week but last night was the first time it came on (26° outside!) The thermostat is set at 66°. I'm in northern Lower Michigan.

  • I had to turn it on yesterday. It got down to the low low 40s here last night, and while the kids and I would have been ok, my sister, who just moved up here with us from Texas, would have froze her bum off when she got up today. And since we aren't supposed to get abover 52 for the next three days, I am going to leave it on for a while just to make sure the kids rooms don't get too chilly. We keep it turmed to where it just takes the chill out of the air without making the air in the house stuffy.

  • Not yet ... probably won't until after Halloween. WAY after Halloween, like mid December or so. We still have our AC on. We keep our bedroom about 63, so the cooler temps will be very welcomed. =)

  • We haven't turned on the furnace, however we supplement with quartz heaters and we have turned those on a few times just to take the chill off. We live in north central Missouri.

  • Now, that would be insane. It was 105 here last week.

    I live in Southern CA, about 45 minutes from Death Valley, if that gives you any indication.
