You are absolutely correct....
I should have mentioned setting the whole house FAU to a low temp &
then space heating to comfort level.
I also agree with your calculation of gas vs electric....but the calc
changes if the gas is propane.
You could save even more by not heating the bedroom at all. Back in
the day prior to central heat only
the rich had fireplaces in the bedrooms - everybody else did with
cold rooms and lots of covers. I grew up that way and still prefer a
cold to a warm room for sleeping
My grandparents lived in a coal community, houses built by the coal
company. Fireplace in every room except kitchen had coal stove. There were
four rooms and outhouse. Bathing was one in the kitchen. At some point
large coal furnace was installed, perhaps from the get go.
