Greening Your Thermostat

I am not getting any [more] sympathy from Green Husband about my home computer (now dead as a doorknob (where did that expression come from anyway? Dead as a doorknob? Or is it doornail? But I digress) since I'd been belly-aching about it for eons and had done nothing about it and so this is just a means to gain *your* sympathy, dear reader, and to tell you that after this Tuesday posts should be back up and running.

So here I am typing at work, albeit on a break, but at work nonetheless, which I think is highly prohibited, so I'll make it short because shortly I will need to pay off a new computer and having a job makes that slightly easier.

So, to keep a long story short (too late) here is a great tidbit I want to share, and to give props where props are do, I must say that I was directed to Crunchy Chicken's site from Geggie's site (thank you, Geggie) and even though I'm a bit late in starting the Freeze Yer Buns challenge, there is still plenty o' time to jump on the bandwagon.

More deets on our strategy in one of those Post-Tuesday posts I alluded too...

No way could I do that, though I totally admire those who can. We are wussy here and I'll be the first to admit it. We don't need our heat often but I can't imagine setting it below 70. To my credit (maybe?) it doesn't get very cold here so we aren't used to it, and we only put the heat on at night when we need it at all. My store didn't have heat at all until about 2 years ago and we very rarely ever use it there ... a few times a year in the morning if it's been particularly cold. So .. we're wimpy but we're not all bad (but still, I can't imagine the house being that cold, does it feel warm with it being even colder outside? Brrrr..... brrrrr brrrrr).

Best of luck with the computer. We're waiting until after Christmas to get one, unless they aren't selling really well and the deals are awesome.

I hate to be cold. So we got new Pella Windows on this ancient house of mine -- because everyone says -- what a difference. I'm still waiting on the difference. We're freezing in here, and we haven't even greened our thermostat!!

Good luck with the computer.

After 5 years of the having the heat up because of the kids not staying covered at night - that's right it was for the kids - we finally decided this was the winter when it would come down - day and night. Generally 65 around the clock. Below that it gets too cold in this house. but that is a big drop from our usual 68-70. Let's see if the oil bill is worth the extra layers we have been wearing!

How does "eyered" do that? It's spam isn't it? Linking an advertisemnt like that by making it sound personal. I thought "what a nice comment, I'll go check out their blog site". Wrong.

We keep our thermostat on 68 daytime and 64 at night. We all sleep better when its chilly.
