Have You Turned On the Heat Yet?

Have you turned on the heat yet?

Seems like just the other day that I was groaning about the heat and humidity.  In reality it was only two or three weeks ago.

Now we've segued right into geez-I-wish-I-could-turn-on-the-heat-temperatures.  You gotta love New England weather.

Every year I try to hold off until November 1st before turning on the heat. I have to say that makes for some chilly days and nights in October.

I just checked and it's 56 degrees in my kitchen right now. I imagine it will be even chillier by morning. 

Getting out of bed is not so easy on these nippy mornings.  And truth be told it's a bit of a downer to come home to a cold house.

But squeeking out one more cheap gas bill is worth it.  And a nifty bonus is having Champ snuggling in my lap or next to me at night. When the heat comes on I lose him to the radiator.

Three more weeks to go.  Time to dig out another sweater.

Hi Liz,

I was forced to turn on the AC in Sept and early Oct.  It was 90 a couple of days and the huskies leave me little choice. Heat stroke is a risk.  I WON'T turn on the heat WON'T for another 2-3 weeks if I can stand it.  It goes off by mid-April - even if I freeze.  that's just the way its going to be until my finances improve.

I turned on the heat. we also use space heaters, so that we don't have to heat up the whole house. I have small children, and in my understanding, it's important for them to be in warm environment. Some dollars I will save over the heating bill are not worth a bad cold my children can catch. They throw off blankets at night, even if it's cold, and if the room is chill, they will wake up with bad cough - it runs in my husband's family. 

so - it's start of heating season for us.

I'm amazed how hardy everybody is though!

I’m curious as to why you try to wait until November 1 before turning on the heat. If I need the heat or cooling, I simply use them. I like to be comfortable. Of course, here in San Diego, I rarely use them since my windows are open most of the time so that I can enjoy our mostly beautiful weather.

It has cooled down a little bit in Vegas also and thanks for rubbing in the wonderful weather of San Diego Russel. The great weather in San Diego will be bringing me there soon!
