Re: [APD] A note on cold climes -- and Temperature Hikes

I can only answer regarding my own presumptions but they
are these. 

I presume that the thermostat is set closer to 78F in the
summer months, to conserve resources, if there is air
conditioning (or the house may be even warmer without AC)
and closer to 68F in the winter, for the same reason.

Surely some folks do just the opposite, run hotter in
winter, amd colder in summer. But we (or at least some of
us) hope they become more conservative ;-)
