Does it change from day to night?  Do you turn it off at all?

    We keep our house pretty cold. Usually it's on 63, but we'll change it between 60 to 65 depending on how cold we are and whether we have company.

    Our thermostat is on the first floor, and our bedrooms are on the second floor. Since heat rises, we do not need to change the setting at night. Usually our second story is warmer than our first story, and we have 3 air vents upstairs even though the square-footage is 1/2 the size (or less) than the first floor. Plus, I have a heated mattress pad that I use to warm up my side of the bed.

    We keep ours at 65 and don't change it until it is time to turn to turn on the a/c.  We turn it off when it is warm enough that we don't need the heat to be running, typically in May and we turn the heat on sometime in Oct.

    Normally we keep it at 65-66 when home... I turn it down to high 50's when at work (gone 5 am-830pm).  However, we currently have a lizard friend and can't go below 68. lol!

    During the day around 65-70 and at night i think it's 62-65 we all like to pile on the blankets at night.

    Brrrr! Ours is set at 73 during the day and 69 at night! But I think it is off because we had a thermometer hung up for awhile that read the temp a few degrees lower than what our thermostat read.

     I try to keep it at 68*, but dh will sometimes push it up to 70*. I think we have it programmed to go down to 66* at night, but I'm not sure.

    It stays on 69 in the winter. When we go on vacation we do turn it down, but not too much since we have caged pets that a friend comes over to care for while we are gone.

    I also turn the hot water heater on the vacation setting when we leave.

    We keep ours at 65. We only turn it off if it's warm or if we turn the a/c on.

    In the winter it's 70 during the day. At night it's 62. (if we're going out for the whole day we turn it down) When it gets warm out it gets turned off.
