This is what I've done with my home. Two Heat- Pumps, I lock out electric heat until outside temp. gets below 30- or the women complain too loud. And I have two occ. modes; day unocc. and night mode. In the summer at night I drop the temp. in the house a couple of degrees and try to "coast" a bit during the day- it seems to work a little better than letting things warm up in the "night" mode. I have the outside receptacle on there so I can time the Christmas lights.
Sanity and happiness are an impossible combination.- Mark Twain
