Thermostat Settings?

I am going in for some surgery on Monday, and will be resting at my parents house. I will be away from my place for a while, and just seeing what I should put my thermostat temps at? I have a programmable thermostat that has four different time settings. Currently they are set at
5:45 am-7 am 72 deg
7-4:45pm 60 deg
4:45-10pm 72 deg
10pm-5:45am 60

The temps in NW MO have been getting down into the 30's at night and 50-60's in the day. I will have someone checking on the place while I am gone, just need to see what I should go ahead and set this at since there will be nobody there during the time I'm gone.

Don't have an answer for you, but you might consider turning your hot water heater down too.

Set for 60 and leave it. Water heater, set for warm, or lowest position, Have someone check on the place if they can, to pick up mail, switch different lights on, and check to make sure no water leaks, etc.

55 to 60 for temp, and as said, water heater to warm or vacation.
