Temperature in the house

Posted by   + Show Post
We seem to have to same debate every winter in this house of what the temperature should be set at.


What do you set your heat to in the winter?

 It's 72* when we're home and 62* when we're not. We tried the recomended 68* for a while and we all go sick of being cold all the time.

ETA: It also drops to 65 after 10:00pm so it's cool while we're sleeping.

We don't have a thermostat to control temperature, because we use the pellet stove as our primary heat.

The temperature in our house is usually between 68-72. If it's ever below 66 when I get up in the morning (which it was once or twice during the very cold snap), I'll turn on the oil heat for an hour to get things back up to normal.

68 is okay for everyone in the house but me. I'm always cold so I like 72 too.
