  • I live in florida and our ac is set at 76. If it were up to me I would leave it at 78, however that's too warm for my hubby. I hate being cold, and hate feeling like I have to wear a sweater or blanket all day in my own home.

  • We live on Long Island in NY. The A/C is set at 72 degrees at night and 73-74 degrees during the day if we are home. If we are out for the day I put it on 76.

  • I'm an office manager at an AC company and a lot of people are actually mis-informed about this... Keep your thermostat set at a constant temperature, regardless of whether you are at home or not. If the house maintains a constant temperature the AC will have to work less to cool it off. It is a typical misconception that you should turn the temperature up while you are gone during the day. This causes the unit to use more electricity when bringing the temperature down to your desired level.
    Typically between 72 - 78 degrees is ideal.

  • 65-70 when we're home, just depends on how hot it is outside. 75 on some nights and when we're out. We live in Texas.
