Since I started trying to curb our energy consumption, one of the big things I've done (besides not using the clothes dryer) is keeping the thermostat low during the day and real low at night.
This is a big deal for me, because I am always freezing. My husband and I have temperature tolerances on totally opposite ends of the spectrum. Especially at night. So recently I'm letting him turn the heat down to 60 degrees at night.
But during the day I'm actually lowering it more than he normally does -- to about 67 degrees. It hasn't been all that bad. I suppose if I wanted to make more of an impact I would set it much lower, but I can't function when I can't feel my hands and feet.
When we moved into our house last year I was a little concerned because the heating system runs on oil (our previous house used natural gas). I did a little research and was excited that we could get a mix of biodiesel to heat our home. So, we signed up for BioHeat. It's a bit more expensive, but well worth it.
And, now for another poll (because they are so fun)!
