  • 71 and even that's too chilly for me! I wear my bathrobe around the house over my regular clothes to keep from freezing. I can't do much when my fingers are numb.

  • 60 in our bedroom and 70 in the baby's....but in the morning I turn on the gas fireplace to take the morning chill out and make it nice and snuggly for the boys to wake up to.

  • 68 seems to be the point I can tolerate. I'm with Mom!

  • 65 during the day and 60 at night. Where I live it doesn't often get above 65 (even during the summer it only gets to be about 70, SOMETIMES 75 and if it does it is WAY too hot for this town) Plus I think that there is no need to keep the entire house warm at night....60 is fine to keep the chill off and our electric bill down.

  • The reason the house should be kept colder is because higher heat creates dryer air. If your air is too dry and even a humidifier isn't helping you really need to lower the heat to about 68. However, if you can afford the cost of heating the house and your air is not to dry keep it at 70.
