Earlier in October we had some cold weather, and Her wrote about the things we do to keep ourselves warm in the winter. Since then we’ve been pretty lucky and have a mild winter here in Chicago.
After we put up the plastic on our windows this year, we’ve noticed that we can turn our programmable thermostat lower than we thought would be comfortable. Here’s our program:
6:30AM-8AM (Wakeup): 64F
8AM-5:30PM (At Work): 60F
5:30PM-11PM (At home): 64F
11PM-6:30AM (Sleep): 54F
So far we’ve been pretty happy with these settings, and we think that we’ve found a good balance between value vs. comfort.
How low does your thermostat go?
