What I was really following is advice a friend gave me. He said set the thing on 78-79 and leave it. When we're in the house I normally like it around the 75 degree mark to feel really comfy, but then it seems like the unit is running a heck of a lot, thats why I bumped it up to 78-79. I think what I'll do is as you guys suggested.....buy a digital Tstat and go with that, it sounds great.
NASTY HABIT - you mentioned some stuff I can do myself...I'm all for that, just tell me how
