At night in the Winter, do you set your thermostat to under 68 degrees, or 68+?
Oh dang, 72-74... In the summer though we keep it high so it works out anyhow.
Same here. I went with 68+.
During the DAY we have it at around 64.
You know what? Suffocation is a scam too! Put your head just a little deeper in the sand.
Not sure what that has to do with room temperature, Nick. But it's sometimes true, yeah. Not for any of the three elderly people I know who knew they were dying, though.
Set it to 8008 and laugh some more.
Old people also give their stuff away because they know theyre gunna due soon.
Why pay a higher bill when you have perfectly good blankets?
I live in Nebraska... under 68 is not an option
It is odd that in the summer 68 is cool and nice. However, in the winter 68 is freezing.
I keep the t-stat at 70 year round.
YEAH PELLET STOVE 78 all day and night!
At night, after 10pm when we're most likely going to bed shortly we turn ours down to 64. No need to sleep in an overly warm house and pay out the ass when we have perfectly great down comforters and such to keep us warm. :)
64-66 in the day. 62 at night
In floor heating temp changes very slowly so I keep it at 68 which means its 64-66 in the rooms
I keep it at 68.
You're not going to die just because your room temperature is under 68 at night - or even in the daytime, for that matter. I'm plenty warm at night under a down comforter at 65°.
Do old people want to die?
Brrrr. Brrrr. Brrrr.
I had no control over the heat in my last apartment. I hated it. I had to keep a window open at night or I couldn't sleep well. At least it was included in my rent so I didn't worry about the cost - just the wastefulness.
We don't control our own heat as we live in an apartment co-op. but I pick lower as I do sleep with the AC on low in the winter.
Usually about 69,70
I like the house to be cooler when I sleep.
I love your state to and will move there within two years , it was 9 degrees this morning... I hate it
Me too! People think I'm nuts because 68 is way too hot.
I'm most comfortable at 60.
@Jlove The sad part is that I live in SoCal.
I have a bunch of knitted afghans that my grandmother made. One of those over the legs plus a sweater if it's a little chilly and I'm pretty toasty.
68+! Well, only because heat is included in the rent ;)
We keep ours set at 68 year-round and our A/C cools almost 24/7/365. Our heat doesn't even work!
72 at night, and usually 74 or 75 when I'm home during the day.
I go 75 in the winter. ;-)
Acclimation to climate. California things warm is different than Maine does.
68 is way too warm for me. 58 is much better.
It was 8 degrees this morning when I got up. All I want is spring at this point.
My thermostat for heat (oil) is always off. My Hearthstone Woodstove heats my house perfectly. I love it. It was -16 outside when I woke up. My house was at 70. It's the only way to afford being warm.
it's kinda weird how the colder states set it lower and the warmer states set it higher. Unless I'm misseeing this.
Don't want the pipes to freeze.
It's so beautiful here you should come on out and see it.
Yo, sweet Queen! Sounds NICE there! The Northwest is the only quadrant of this Country I've never been, yet the area I've most wanted to check out! The Washington/Oregon areas specifically, and I don't mind the rain!☔
I like it cold in the house at night but we have little ones that shuck their blankets. I set it at 69 so they are comfortable. If I was alone I would turn it way down.
Yesterday was T-shirt weather here today it's rainy.
@gonzo - Indeed, my comment was meant to be lighthearted. I appreciate your taking it in the spirit in which it was offered.
Temps are a pleasant 20ish degrees today. Feels great after the arctic blast earlier this week when daytime highs couldn't climb above single digits.
Well now @JLove, seein' you're from Illinois, I willingly accept your lighthearted incredulity! Lived in the Midwest for a time, so know it'll never be as cold for as long here, as it is there. I do live in Northern AZ, some nights recently in single digits. More cold's on its way, so happy baking!
That would be 14deg F before you razz me again;-)
The irony is that I am still wearing shorts and short Sleeve shirts. It was -10deg c this morning when I ran errands in my shorts? Go figure.
Under. Too expensive to put it higher. Slept with 4 blankets last night and was still a little chilly. Guess that's what happens when it's 6 degrees out and windy.
60 at night...64 during the day...winter...summer open windows.
