Title says it all. Only need replies from people who live where there is true winter. Southerners et al, I get it. No need to reply you have the a/c on. That won't help with my curiosity.

Edited to add that I'm asking in regards to your dwelling, not automobile. Just wanted to make that clear.

I'm jealous. I have to keep ours at 68 otherwise the girls become...irritable. Our house is a little weird, though. The further from the furnace you get, the higher the ceilings. So basically have the house is well above 68 and half the house is well below. At least the thermostat is roughly at that halfway point in the house.

It depends on who is in the house. If it's just me, I set it to 58-60 and I'm happy. Usually someone else ends up setting it to 65, 70..

Also, since I'm on a crawlspace, once the temperature drops below 20 or so at night , I'll close the vents off some to restrict flow and set the thermostat to 70 anyway to keep more heat in the crawlspace.

In my old apartment with electric heat, I'd set it to 50. It cost me more to heat a 1 bedroom apartment to 50 than my entire house to 60, 70.

66 wake-up and 64 bed-time.
Only time that changes is when I close the bathroom door to shower. I keep a small floor-model electric heater in that bathroom and have it-on during the shower. That way it's warm when I'm naked getting out of the shower - then shut it off and slowly acclimate my body back to the pre-set home temp of 66 degrees. But I like it 70+ degrees getting out of that shower while semi-wet.

Set 24/365 at 67 degrees.

I can't fathom why some of you have it set under 60!! It's a house, not a barn.

Night .... 58* F
Day ...... 62* - 64* F


In the house, I wear:
Fleece Jacket & Flannel-lined Jeans
With these cloths, 62* is fine for me.

I tell people that to save money:
I air-condition the house in Winter and heat it in Summer.
Most people are doing it wrong.

I do my best sleeping when the house is 60 or less. I like the weight of the blankets. My GF works nights, when she is home I have to keep heat at 65 and up. Up preferred for her.

Daytime I heat 68F

I try to do 70 for a while, but most winters I end up finding that too low and bump it up to 72 for better comfort. I will be turning it down to 60 tonight though, as we're leaving for Florida until January 5th.

Since today is -11 where I am at, it's at 70 right now to keep things warm. At night 65 or 66 and when I am gone it goes down to 62. Otherwise between 68-70. It would be hard for me to keep at 65 and lower.....BRRR
