you are a trooper. We keep it at 70 when we’re home during the day and 68 at night. We have gas heat, though, and its super duper cheap.

68 for the most part

66 when we leave (for the dog)

We leave it at 68 all the time. I would prefer it cooler for sleeping but my fiancé would prefer it to be like 90 at night so we meet on the middle. We never reduce it when we are gone during the day either because we want to keep our kitty comfortable! We usually turn our gas fireplace on in the evenings to watch tv in front of though. And my cat loves it.

It’s either at 57 or 60 (I think it gets “warmer” when we’re supposed to be home, but it’s like always at 57).  Brr.

@jb20:  69-71. Because my house is old and I’m not sure it has any insulation. 69 is ok when the radiators are heating, then I start freezing and turn it up to 71. Then I get too warm and turn it back down.

This is a touchy subject around here…

FI won’t let it go above 60, and I’m always FREEZING

When he’s out I sneak it up to 64

Sometimes the house will dip to 58! 🙁

Our heat isn’t too expensive, so we keep it where we like it, mostly.

It’s usually at 70-71 when I’m awake, and turned down to 68 at night & when we are gone.

I’m spoiled lol.

We keep it around 73 at night and 71 during the day. The house is old and lacks insulation, but mostly it’s because baby sleeps without blankets (for safety) so he needs it to be warm in the house. Pre-baby, it was more like 68 during the day and 65 at night.

@Jess1483:  70. Any colder and my fingernails turn blue. 

ETA: we turn it down to 60 when out.

64-68 when home, 60 at night/when away. We prefer bundling up and eating/drinking hot things than spending money on heat. We invested in improving insulation in our home and its made a huge difference.

@kendra389:  We have the same problem.  I would turn it up and forget, and he would get mad.  I mean, it does cost a LOT of money…but it is SO COLD!!!

71 during the day when I am here, 68 or lower if H  has the house to himself.  I’ve been in other people’s homes where I was perfectly comfortable at 68-69 so I don’t think it  is the same just because the thermostat on interior walls says so.  We keep it in the low 60s at night, but the thermostat goes up automatically before we get up.
