    Usually about 68. I get warm very easily and luckily both my husband and I prefer a cooler temp in our house. Makes for an expensive A/C bill in the summers, though!

    62/64 because we’re cheap asses. Usually I bundle up with sweatpants, long sleeve and a thick sweatshirt and a blanket on the couch.

    With pregnancy my body temp is up so no need for bundling. Save on gas bill! Woot!

    We are cheap too; that’s what happens when you have a 500 gallon propane tank to heat your house at $2.19/gallon. Ours is programmed to turn on at certain times, but for heat it’s 64 and when we are away and from 12 am-6am it’s at 60. It’s comfortable to us.

    We usually keep it at 62 at night and 67 during the day. Sometimes I still feel hot lol

    I live in an OUTRAGEOUSLY drafty apartment. When I first moved in, I tried to keep it around 70, and it would NEVER get above 65 in the front room (where the TV/couch is), and I’d be paying through the nose for gas. I leave it around 65 right now, and just have a HUGE assortment of  throw blankets for when people are over for girly TV night or something. The kitchen is generally around 68, and the dining room the same. Luckily, the master bedroom is probably the most comfortable room in the apartment!

    I started saving about $100 a month by doing this, no joke!

    Ours is set at 73-75+, depending on how harshly the wind is blowing. Thankfully, I live in on-campus apartments, so my water and heat are paid for in my rent amount, so we can crank it up and walk around in our PJs. Once Mr.ND and I get a place, I’m sure it will be significantly cooler 🙁 Better put some slippers and sweaters on my Christmas list.

    I voted 68 and under.  Luckily, I don’t pay for our heating, but I have been sweating like a pig lately.  It’s gross.  I think ours is sitting at about 65ish right now.  If I’m not working nights, I will lower the thermostat so I don’t sweat to death in bed.

    During the winter, 70-72. 

    During the summer, 78 when we’re home, 82 during the day. I would like to keep it colder during the summer, but my electric bill would be outrageous if we did.

    OMG!  Not even close to 68.  We keep it at 65 when we’re home, and 60 when we’re not.  However, this season, we have completely sealed off the two living rooms next to each other that we use that get the warmest since that is the first stop in the heating ducts when it gets blown up, leaving the rest of the house to be probably only 55-60.  Can’t wait to see the heating cost diff this year by doing that and trying to only keep warm 550 or so sf instead of over 2000.

    Now 65 and NO higher!…we have a HUGE old farm house my heating bill is OUTRAGEOUS, on the “saver plan” i pay 300 a month year round- we keep doors closed and heat off in the side of the house we arent in, we use draft dodgers, flannel sheets on the beds,plastic the windows and garage and insulate the built in ACs..it makes a huge difference! I also have 2 foot stools full of blankets -And i turn the heat back to 55 ish when i leave for the day

     

    and make sure your windows are LOCKED ladies, sometimes just shutting them without locking them leaves gaps and air comes in!

    I get hot really easy. Once I get hot I get sick. :/ I keep it cold as heck in our house during both the summer & winter!! During the summer its at 70 degrees & sometimes I even have to set it at 68-69 to make it turn on its so cool inside already. During the winter I keep the heat turned off 95% of the time. When I do turn it on its REALLY cold inside & I only leave it on for about 10 minutes then back off it goes. & Its usually when we first get home from somewhere so we are cold from being outside. 😛 Its never on during the night because I get so hot I can’t sleep even with the heat off! It gets really cold here during the winter also. (Virginia.) Idk why I am a cold freak, but I am!!

    in the winter, somewhere around 65-67, but in the summer we barely use our a/c, so the house is usually 70-80 degrees.
