My wife & I just bought a house in North Carolina that has natural gas heat & central air. Previously, the house I owned had a heat pump located in Central Virginia.
In the past, I pretty-much "set it & forget it" as far as adjusting the thermostat goes, not wanting to engage the aux heat by demand greater than 2degrees at a time. Since I'm no longer faced with aux heat, is it all right to "set-back" the furnace,say at night, by as much as 8 to 10 degrees, and then raise it in the morning, either manually or by a programmable thermostat?
Thanks to all for the benefit of your knowledge/experience!
