When do you turn the heat on?

Have you already done that? Where do you live?

  • Eastern NC - we don't have ours on yet. Right now the house has been between 62 and 67 degrees - we've just been putting on an extra sweater and snuggling under blankets on the sofas. But we prefer it to be consistently with highs in the low 60s and lows in the 30s before we turn the heat on.

  • we live in Southern California. We have not yet turned on the heat. I won't either, unless it gets down to the 40's. We just put extra blankets on.
