Average Degrees

HannahPanda HannahPanda
So... my Mom keeps the house a minimum of 75 degrees at all times and we argue constantly about what the average person finds normal. I'd say hovering around 70 degrees is an average house temperature but I simply can't stand waking up and it being 79 degrees because she's cold natured. I figured I'd ask what exactly those of you out there find to be a great temperature for just having leisurely time around the house, nothing strenous.

Ours never goes above 70. If you're cold, put on more layers lol.
My fiance and I are normally on the warm side though!

My dad feels like he's freezing anywhere below 80, and it drives me nuts because I can't stand having the house that warm (especially if I'm trying to nap - my room gets hotter than any other in the house, and that kind of heat is impossible for me to sleep in). I'd much prefer it to be between 70-75.

I'm more comfortable having a slightly chilly house and wrapping up in a blanket than I am having a house that's a bit too warm.

Energy conservation suggests keeping the thermostat between 68 and 72. I wouldn't mind it being 65 (being the only warm-natured female in Florida) while my mother (the average cold-natured female) prefers it about 82.

Today we were out of school for a snow day. I kept both my windows open and a fan going.
I like it really cold (60-ish) and prefer to snuggle in a blanket than turn up the heat.

55 because any more and i'd be poor... er. also, when i read this, i thought you meant geometric angles, which seemed very odd.

I thought she was talking about college, myself.

We usually max out at 70. Sometimes on weekends when we're home during the day we may turn it up. Our heat is not the most efficient in this old home and the downstairs is usually considerably cooler.

I hate to be cold, except for when I'm sleeping. The thermostat hovers between 70 and 75 in the winter and 76-78 in the summer.

In the winter it's around 68 and the summer it's around 78

I wish my house would stay around 70 in the winter and around 60 in the summer, but I don't have central heating and air.
