Yes! When, I am/was away from home for periods of time I would.

But when I was at home; i didn't hear it or bother neighbors.

Also, I don't have to take gas tanks to get filled as often.

Same here

We are full timers, and leave ours on full time. The only time we turn it off is when it's time to flush the tank.
