Add Extra Blankets & Turn Down the Thermostat
Here's a tidbit to think over — it is just as comfortable and far cheaper for us to run electric blankets overnight than it is to heat our house while we sleep.

It'll work for you, too.

If you're cold at night, an electric blanket will keep you toasty and warm without heating the entire house. You can program your thermostat to turn itself down overnight and use an electric blanket to warm up the 18 or so square feet that you are actually occupying while you sleep.

And if you want to really save money, just put a couple of extra blankets on your bed — and program down your thermostat to turn itself down overnight.
