We keep the upstairs at 70. Downstairs at 66 when no one will be home. 71 otherwise. Our propane tank is ours. We fill it once a year. Been averaging about 500 gallons a year.

Main floor: 68 during the day. Drops to 63 at night (effectively shutting it off).
2nd floor: 68 during the day. System drops to 60 at night (effectively shutting it off).

This time of the year our HVAC system seldom run.

We have two separate systems, main floor and second floor. The master bedroom, Florida room, kitchen, dining room, and formal living room are on the main floor. My office, my wife's office, guest bedroom, and the media room are on the second floor. Since we're in the south, we have heat pumps and air handlers rather than furnaces.

We like it comfortable! I don't want to freeze. We keep ours at:73 at night and 74-75 during the day.
We put new windows in and insulated our house to the hilt.

I'm happy!!!

Past couple days before I got the 'new' blower working... I've thrown all reserve to the wind. Upstairs propane, going full throttle, downstairs propane, going 3/4 throttle, electric oil filled heater, going full bore, looks like a radiator out of an old house, I even have an electric toaster sized heater that I keep by my legs. Yup, that one is going full bore too. Alright I'm starting to sweat with all my outdoor gear on. I wish you all well. Time to get out.
