    We keep it at about 67 degrees, unless I am feeling really really cold.  Then I might kick it up to 70 degrees until I feel warmer. 

    We used to keep the house cooler 62-65 degrees, but we keep it warmer now that we have a puppy.

    We keep it around 66 degrees; although, when we get our next bill, we may be dropping it down a bit and wearing more clothes and blankets. It just costs way to much to heat our home.

    68 now that I live in a new and energy efficient house. The last two winters I lived in a 100+ year old windbox with no insulation or weather proofing. The first cold month came and went for my 1,000 square foot place….. gas bill was $270!!! Yea, not okay. After that I kept the temp at 58 degrees and got really used to hanging out under blankets. It was pretty miserable.

    If I had my way our house would be in the 80’s. I’m always freezing and my hands/feet are usually like ice. Darling Husband gets hot rather easily so we keep it just above in the mid 70’s.

    Darling Husband is always hot, and I’m always cold.  So we settle on about 73-75 on the air and we have a tower fan that he can point on himself if he gets hot.  We try not to turn the heat on or only use a teeny bit in the winter (we’re even luckier now and don’t plan to touch the heat in our new FL home!).

    Well, if i were in charge of the thermostat, I would have it set between 73-77. I’m always cold. But ole boyfriend won’t let me turn the heat up past 68 and that makes me cranky, but then I use my Snuggie and it is OK – I guess.

    We keep it at about 64 degrees downstairs and try not to turn on the heat upstairs until the very last minute.  We have oil which gets really expensive.  We try to conserve as much as we can but sometimes when i’m at home alone I put it to 70 mwa haa haaa…

    We don’t mind the cold for the most part so we generally just keep the heat off (unless it gets absolutely freezing cold) so it’s really whatever temperature it chooses to be.  Lately here it’s been between 70 and 75 during the days in our house but when it gets colder it’ll probably be around 64 or 65.  We’d rather put on tons of clothes/blankets than pay a high electric bill though.

    I still live with my parents and it’s usually 50-55… not kidding.  It’s redicuously cold.  My dad’s theory is that we might as well use the blankets we have instead of paying for more heat haha… love my dad.

    Fiance keeps his place around 70 and I can’t WAIT to move in in March!!

    I’m crazy because I keep the AC & the ceiling fans on all year long basically, lol.  I love being cold and then snuggling up under a blanket.  For me to get cold enough to turn the heat on would mean a blizzard had rolled into Georgia (very unlikely!).  Ok, I might be exaggerating just a tiny bit, but you get my point, hahaha!

    58 at night, 65 during the day.  The kid gets too hot at night with just her swaddle and her long sleeve onsie.

    OMG you people are crazy!!!! Our house is at 80 during the day, but we put it down to 78 when we got to bed.  It’s set to 82 when we’re not home.
