You may have your love to keep you warm, but a furnace comes in handy. Still, when do you flip the switch?

Interesting article. I'm glad there are other families that have the same issue with when the furnace gets turned on. Usually, I don't fire it up until Nov 1, although I did light it this morning to take the chill out and make sure there were no issues. We tend to rely on our gas fireplace before the real cold hits.

I just leave my thermostat on "auto". It turns the AC on when needed and the furnace on when needed. No need for this silliness.

Is Eric Davis' wife 12 years old? Because it sure sounds like that's how he treats her (or perhaps how she acts).

Why does the "man" think he can dictate when the heat (or AC) can be used? In this area 70% of women work at a paying job, they are contributing to the household and are intelligent and capable of determining if they need the heat on or not. Terrible article.

My gripe is open windows during the day, furnace (and $$$) at night. KEEP THE HEAT inside and leave the windows closed if you will want heat later on :)
