I remember something from the Electric company a while ago that said if you turn your heat off completely it costs more to warm the house back up than if you maintained a low temp of say 60 and then warmed it up a half hour before you returned home or before you woke up. I think your electric company can provide current information on that. It may be different with today's technology. They are constantly doing studies on ways for the consumer to save money. Apparently it prevents them from spending money on building and maintaining more and/or bigger facilities.
