    What is the appropriate temperature to keep your home comfortable?

    I say 70. Discuss?

    Mine is at 68. Depends what kind of house you have as well. I have a two story, and the bedroom is upstairs and much warmer.

    71-72

    My upstairs stays warmer than downstairs, so normally keep it around 73 up there and it'll be 68 or so downstairs.

    If I keep it 71-72 downstairs it ends up 77-78 upstairs, basically a sauna.

    I keep mine at 75 when home, 82 when away. Fed recommends 78 to save energy. When its over 100 out I may bring it down to 74 in summer.
    My house gets hot because of the solar panels.

    Thermostat is a "feels like" temperature so it may tun the furnace on to dry out air in summer or the a/c to moisten air in winter. My house is zoned so if I am not in the front half of the house it runs at a higher temp in summer.

    I have a high efficiency system with variable speed so its pretty efficient and rarely runs at full bore.

    My power bill was about $12 bucks last month for running my A/C 140 hours.

    When Im out for an extended period like work or vacation its 74 in the summer. I will lower to 72 when I get home and if its a night heat wave I might drop it to 70 during the night.

    In the fall and winter I keep the heat at 65. Might even lower it this winter. I love it cold.

    I didn't run my AC at all until Covid hit me. My internal temperature control appears to be messed up now so I run my AC at 78. I like warmth.

    yep. I set our house, a 3 story (basement) at 70 during the day, and 68 at night. I have 2 small kids taking naps still, so when they are older, probably bump that to 72 during the day.

    I feel like I need to show my wife this thread, she constantly whines about how cold it is.

    If you want the ultimate, you've got to be willing to pay the ultimate price. It's not tragic to die doing what you love.

    I think women are just naturally cold and need the heat.

    We will compromise some days where well crack the windows open and turn the AC off. Temp will read like 84 and Ill be sitting on the couch uncomfortable and as soon as Im like ok airs going on its its not that hot!

    I also absolutely do not and never will get the its too cold in. Put a ****ing sweatshirt or blanket on! You crank that **** up to 90 and theres only so much skin I can remove!
