I hear ya Deanna. I like to wake up to a warm house but sleep better when it is cooler. I hate to get out of bed when it is cold.
I had a programmable one about 10 years ago but it only had two options for settings and ended up giving it away. Went back to the round one and did it Dodgeman's way and didn't really worry about the gas and electric bill if something ran all day until now.
