heating a basement appartment

Hi there, I have a vacant appartment in basement. Over winter at what temperature do I keep appartment? Is there a danger of
pipes freezing?
Thanks

We usually aim for 40º F to give a little wiggle room. Remember that when you set a thermostat to 40, the heat turns itself on at 38 and off at 42. The wiggle room is the 6º between 32 and 38.
