During the winter, do you set the thermostat at a comfortable temperature, or do you set the thermostat below comfortable, but wear extra clothing?

Jealous. Ready for the heat!

I'm with you. Spent most of my childhood in Atlanta & used to go to Savannah with buddies regularly. Air gets *thick* down there in the summer!

I thought Pensacola was bad, but Brunswick, GA has very little wind unless you are on the island. It's like walking in a swimming pool

Too expensive to be comfortable in VT in the winter by using the heater alone.

All heat, but I tend to like colder environments than most. I leave the thermostat at 58 unless I've been outside.

72 degrees in the winter, 68 in the summer.
Gets expensive at times, but I pay the Bill, so.....

Probably time to get our unit checked, though it's not old (2006, I believe)
I have to be the 'light Nazi' with the kids constantly. Grr

We lived on the coast, so the heat wasn't terrible with a little coastal wind...but GA+coast+summer=8,000% humidity. Our books were starting to warp it was that bad. Once it was fixed we were back to 70 just to get the humidity out.

Our power bills have been outrageous this winter. Last 2 months were well over $300, despite running thermostat at 67-69.
Lesson learned. More blankets next winter & 65-67. This crap's gettin' real!

FYI, we had to turn the AC on. Close to hitting 90 today...

We had the same problem last summer in GA. After two bills that topped $300 we bought all new weather stripping, shut off half the house, lowered the AC, kept blinds closed all the time...and it dropped to $280. Turns out AC was leaking freeon. Filled up and bills went back down to $150ish
