Hot air rises while cold air falls, so to get the most out of your heating system, keep your heat at a constant temperature during your hours at home. Turn it down a few degrees when away from home or at night. On frigid days, set thermostat no lower than 60 degrees to avoid frozen pipes. When those temperatures really drop, setting the thermostat a little higher than you would normally, costs a lot less in the long run when compared to the cost of repairing damage from burst pipes!
