Hmm, I don’t think it’s fair for me to answer, but we don’t have it on heat or air right now.  We have been turning the tower fan on and opening the porch door when we get warm.

But when we lived in OK and it got cold, I was a 70 degree person (and that was my compromise, I would have loved 72!).  Darling Husband would rather it be 65.

We usually keep it between 63-68. Right now I have it at 66.

During the summer- 75/76. Winter- 64-70, depending on how freezing I am.

we don’t have central heat, so we use space heaters. our beach bungalow has very little insulation, so around thanksgiving (when we didn’t have the space heaters) it was 56 degrees in our house!

We rarely turn on our heat.  We live in a condo, and apparently our surrounding neighbours like to walk around in bikinis in the middle of winter or something, so their heat and that from the hall way is usually enough to keep us at a comfortable 20 degrees C (68 fahrenheit)

Our heat is regulated from a central point in our building, so we don’t have a thermostat (but at least we don’t have to pay for heat). I’d say it’s around 70 in here, but it definitely fluctuates and I hate that we don’t have control over it. It’s pretty standard in old Boston buildings, though – and it’s hard to keep everyone happy when one boiler is heating 8 floors of apartments!

@MissTatas: I know it’s awesome.  Hot water is included in our strata fees, and we’re completely CFL light bulbs, so our energy bills are pretty low overall.  Preparing ourselves to face “real” bills when we get our house.

@SapphireSun: my old apartment was like that, I loved it!

We keep ours at 68 but it is programmed to only come on in the early afternoon and evening. We don’t heat the house during the day or when we are sleeping. During the summer we open the windows and use ceiling fans if necessary, we don’t have an AC unit.

When I woke up this morning it was at 59. Usually it’s around 64, although when FH goes to work I crank it up to 70 🙂

65 through the night and 69 during the day

I handle my thermostat a little different.

In the mornings, I turn on the thermostat until it hits 70. Then I turn it OFF. I won’t turn it on again until the temperature in the house is 60. Once we go to sleep, the thermostat is turned off, regardless of what the temperature is in the house and then it won’t get turned on again until the morning.

I also use space heaters in the area of the house that I’m located in.
