    What is your Thermostat set at?

    I battle every day with my girlfriend she turns it to 78-80 and I turn it back down to 72. Everyday all I hear is it is freezing in here and I feel fine but she will say the kids rooms are too cold.. I have to go outside which right now is -3 to feel better, not only that but in the winter time you should not sleep without blankets(which I do because its so hot)!! I swear we are at a battle now so where does everyone else keep there's set at so I know I am not the crazy one??

    I usually keep mine from 76-80 because its included in my rent and I live in an apartment building and my appartment catches a nice cold wisconsin draft everytime the doors opened. I tell ya tho if I had to pay for it, it wouldnt go over 70 maybe 72... maybe you could just get space heaters for the kids bedrooms? Thats what my mom does at her house n it keeps it nice in there

    Winter time- 72-73 range, I guess what im feeling that day.
    Summer time- 76-78 depends how hot and sunny it is and if the sun is hitting the windows directly.

    Never over 68 in central Wisconsin. If you're cold. Put on some sweats.

    Just another "area" where I'm definitely an "outlier". (Weird in one thing, weird in everything.)

    No exaggeration: Where we live (high desert) it gets below zero at night all winter long; but we don't run the heat at all. We leave a window or two open. Our bedroom's air temperature stays quite close to that of the outside air.
    N.B. Our kids are long since gone.

    We just use whatever blankets are necessary. Having done decades of 2.5 to 4 hours a day of aerobics, I always (lightly) sweat at night. We don't sleep with any clothes on. Our blankets are shifted: more so over her body; less so over mine. Still, she just squeezes up nice and tight for my extra heat. Never gets any complaints from me on that score.

    The advantages for us this way: we dance all-night out-doors almost every single weekend and, what with breathing cold air all night every weekday, the cold doesn't overwhelm us (even with her always wearing mini-skirts); also, the cooler the surrounding air at home, the less "bugs" floating around in that air that could otherwise get you sick.

    During the summer, temperatures hang in the 90s; but we don't run any air-conditioning.

    We've "lived" / slept this way for decades; so we're used to it. We have the lowest possible heating/cooling bills possible. Don't hardly ever get colds or get sick.

    Not saying what other people should do.

    Last thought, women tend to drink less water than men; and, as a result, tend to suffer more from cold and from heat. Further, they tend to be in less physical condition and they tend to have less body mass; again both contributing to having more difficulties with temperature extremes. Same applies for most children. Keeping this in mind, it is not surprising that she would tend to favor higher night temperatures than you.

    Knowing the overall *shape* of an idea, argument, situation requires as many facts, models, opinions as you can take/make to see a whole.

    20 degrees celsius or 68 Fahrenheit.
    Favourite Teams:

    Boston Red Sox: Disappointing regular season, hoping for good things in 2015.
    Indianapolis Colts: 4-2, Week 7 vs. Bengals
    Dallas Mavericks: New team, hoping for good things this season.
    Ottawa Senators: 1-1-0, games this week vs. Florida, Colorado and Columbus.

    Unless you also don't have running water you can't leave your heater off in sub zero temps. Pipes would freeze bud. Nice novel but probably should do some research next time. Keep dancing though!
