If you are leaving during the winter months for an extended stay away, what do you set your home thermostat at? We live in the Northwest and temperatures can get into the 20's.

We are hardly ever gone in the winter months for more than two weeks. Even if longer, we'd still set our themostat at 65 degrees. I feel that too low of a setting can effect many things inside, therefore, just don't want to take a chance to cause any damage.

Our temperatures here in Bremerton, WA will seldom go below 30 degrees and that will be during the night for a very short time.

I usually set mine on 50. I also drain the water lines and add antifreeze to the traps as an added precaution for power failure.
