Am in an old 60's style place with baseboard heat. Keeping it at 65* all the time. My equal pay bill at PGE is $88 a month. If it is a nice day, open them curtains on the oversized sliding glass doors that face south and it warms up inside a little more.

Slippers, heavy robe/sweatshirt/heavy throw doing just great.
Da bed heating blanket keeps me cozy at night, the bedrooms are unheated.

I sure miss my old Earthstove at the old house, love the coziness, but I don't miss swinging the ax to feed it...

Judyfish, Miss my old Hot Diamond stove too.
But the cutting ,splitting,stacking,drying,hauling,re-stacking, splitting again, and burning,
got tiresome after 45 years. In a 1930's or 40's house.
But that and a fireplace were all we had.
And I was in a hekova lot better shape then too.

Wife likes it cool, 68 ish. Layers and hats in the house for me. I pray for ice storms, east winds and power outages so I can use the basement Arrow fireplace insert. Also I toss and turn at night so the dog sleeps on the bed next to her. So she likes the bedroom cool also. I like lots of layers and weight of covers so the open window is nice. I have a hoodie I sleep in. Always something around the head and neck to keep warm. Just take the strings out, don’t ask me how I know

Danneroll: I always had trouble keeping warm in my sleeping bag when it got cold, like below 20. One night I put on my little polar fleece beanie and from then on didn't need to zip up the bag. What a difference.

Got a pull over fleece hoodie at the sportsman show couple years back. Covers head and neck. Bought it for running up during Springer season. Always gear up before the run upriver for another pass
This year it came in handy during the cold snap during Thanksgiving
Was at ML Elk camp and had temps down to 8° overnight, most nights in the teens. Nice about that hoody it won't slip off my head like a beany. (15×25 wall tent)

I'm a hooded sweatshirt guy , live in em

Sorry for the flashback

When my 4month old granddaughter is over we bump it up a few

My wife regulates the temp which means I'm in my Tee shirt in the evenings and she still has a blanket and the dog in her lap. If its cold out in the am she starts the wood stove which I like as it keeps the heat pump from working and we have a lower power bill. I hate those 50 degree days as its too warm out for a fire and heat pump keeps on sucking power.

Neighbors behind us have a heat pump. That thing runs 90% of the time no matter the weather. Can't imagine anything that runs that much is cheap. I was in their house the other day and they had no lights on, trying to save on the electric bill I guess?
