Basement heat control

I'm about ready to head to Orlando for our annual Christmas stay at Fort Wilderness. As luck would have it, the temps nosedived after this storm in the Midwest. I've got the aqua hot on for the basement and moved the little white thermostat button located in the basement to on. My question is how to have a rough idea of the temperature setting down there. The sliding lever on the bottom does not have a temp scale.

Does anyone have experience with the proper or approximate setting? I don't need it tropical down there LOL! Right now I've got the sliding lever about halfway across and it's definitely warm down there! Temps tonight in Chicago will approach 10-15F...

I have my 42 Aspire parked in my driveway right now (Knoxville, Tn) with the temp being in the upper 20's at night. I put a small wall thermometer in the bay to read the temp. I put the thermostat in the middle and the next morning I got a reading of 52.

Thanks! I've got mine set in the middle too. It's about 20F right now and it feels fine in the basement last time I checked.
