No idea about that
This time of year I rarely run any HVAC controls...during the summer, AC is generally between 65-68*. That said, this week has been mid-60’s during the day at good ol ‘right smack dab in the middle of the piedmont of NC elevation’.
Went to bed at this temp...
Woke up to 36* outside and this temp inside

I'm very curious to see how things play out at the capitol in VA today
I bet nothing. There was likely no real threat but because of all the hooplah the governor will say that their course of action saved the day and averted a catastrophe.
So what do I win?
Hell the protesters even cleaned the streets when they were done. The environmental protestors don’t even clean up after themselves.
I really don't think it could have gone any better for the pro-2a crowd. All those guns, all those emotions...and not a single incident. Multiple races, genders, creeds, etc coming together to erase any white boomer male narrative. And as you noted, they left the place in better shape than when they got there. Frankly, I'm not sure how it could be spun negatively or with Anti-2a favorability. The only argument left on the table was/is 'these legal, law abiding citizens aren't the ones we need to worry about, it's the illegal transactions', which inherently refutes itself.
You obviously, and very wisely, do not read comment sections on social media when a news site posts an article about the rally. Many, many people said the people at the rally are the exact people we need to worry about because they are actually deranged enough to carry such weapons out in public.
Only social media I follow are groups that follow my leaning anyway. And that being said, found out a guy in one of the AR groups im in was the ‘guillotine guy’ in Va. I generally pay attention to those comments. Context is...discussion of honorary Dont Tread on Me custom lowers with a guillotine...low and behold, he was the guy.

They make tstat controllers that can turn on heat when its low and turn on AC when its high
Have one of those ‘fancy’ ones upstairs...still usually just set one heat temp and when it gets warm enough, one AC temp. This one I can set at 65* AC, if indoor temp drops below 60* it can cycle itself over to heat at whatever temp I set it to and then cycle back to AC when/if it hits a max temp. I don’t particularly care for it because I’ve found during fall/spring it’s constantly fighting itself and cycling back and forth. Then my $120 electric/gas bill turns in to $250-300/month.

I found that when I set the gap big enough it didn’t have any major issues. When it was too close it would heat up and then cause the AC to turn on prematurely.
With the heat threshold set at 59 and the AC threshold set at 75 it did well. Heat was set on 64 and AC was set on 73.
So heat never bothered to turn on and work until AC is off long enough for temp to drop to 59. Then heat takes over and keeps it at 64. Vice versus for AC. The only time swaps happened was on those weird days when snowed in the morning, pool weather for lunch and back to snow after dinner
Another thing you can do with the newer stats is program them to not run the blower when in defrost mode. During the heat cycle, the coils will frost and the unit will naturally reverse the cycle to thaw them. Normally the fan kicks on with the system and blows cold air into your house.
according to a HVAC buddy, the heat strips are supposed to run during defrost to prevent cold air.. being a reversed cycle, it needs air across the indoor coil to warm the outdoor unit..
You can turn those coils off as well. The compressor and change in state will heat the refrigerant. I think it depends on what the temperature is outside and the delta needed, but in NC you shouldn't need the air across the indoor coil. Also if you are not using electric secondary, they dont use that energy source to defrost the coils. My current unit has an oil furnace as backup vs electric coils. My furnace does not kick on when the heat pump is in defrost. I was originally told about this by someone in the commercial HVAC industry that also has this setup in his home for some time, YMMV.

just another reason to always carry a weapon. You never know when you may need it. So, like the boy scouts, always "be prepared". (There's a joke there also but I thought better of stating it)
