Re: Turning heat down, is it a myth?
Back to the subject. Our house was built in 1870 we run above 70 degrees during the day and turn the heat down to 60 at night. It has cut our heating bill in half. Unless it is very cold (below freezing) it usually takes most of or all night for the temp to drop far enough for the furnace to come on. I believe your best course of action would be to do more winterizing you're losing your heat to fast. Investigate some solar heat boxes to help during the day, that heat would be free and they're easy to build.
