I shake my head at my family and friends back down South who have to keep the thermostat at 78 in the winter, and at 64 in the summer.It was 60* in the house this morning. Set all my t-stats to 63* I refuse to be cold in my own home.
That's how we are. We didn't move from Texas to northern NH to sweat!See, I was the opposite. My parents kept the heat cranked, and I can’t stand being warm. I can be cold any day but heat makes me a baby.
I laugh when I see suggestions to lower your heat to 68 to save money, I’m uncomfortable at 65 and keep it around 60 or so, but turn it down to 55 at night to sleep cozy.
Ours is set at 68 and that is where it stays, year round.My thermostat is set to 72 in the day and 65 at night, I don’t ever actually turn it off, if it gets cold in august my heat kicks on! keeps my wife happy and over the couple bucks that it costs I’m not holding out..
grew up in an uninsulated 300yr old colonial with only a fireplace on the 1st floor, pipes in the kitchen and bath would routinely freeze in the winter, bedroom temps were 40ish maybe. F that noise, I’ll be comfortable.
