60 degrees won’t freeze pipes. We keep our thermostat there if we’re not going to be home for a few days and have never had an issue.

But have you done so when the temp outside is -30? I would worry about some of the old homes with poor insulation and exterior wall plumbing.

I lived in an apartment years ago and woke up to a pipe that burst in the walls and sprayed water and wet sheetrock throughout my living room. My temp wasn’t set low, but they had shitty insulation and a pipe near a door jam.
