5 degrees kelvin, it’s expensive but it keeps my super conductors working.

62 when we are out or sleeping
68 while we are home and awake

Warm enough to hang out in shorts and a tank top

one were I do not sweat sitting still (Under 78 in work cloths)

Where I’m too lethargic to get my fuckin on

If I needed gloves to take a piss to not scare myself.

In the summer I prefer 65, but with roommates I keep it at 68.
Winter 70, sometimes cooler at night.

I can’t sleep when it’s above 69*, takes me longer to fall asleep

anything below 65 can be too cold, but no lower than 62. I can always put on sweats.
Above 70* is unbearable to me.

oh, and I don’t pay electric

Keep it at 85 day, 79 night. I’d keep it at 70 if I could. In Texas, normal seems to be around 50 degrees in the summer for most indoor businesses. 80 gets a little warm to be comfortable, but there are summer days where it doesn’t matter how cold you keep it inside, it’s just too hot to live. Much below 70 gets a little chilly.

77 in summer, 70-73 in winter (or as cool as the wife will allow)

What would you keep it at if you didn’t have to pay the electric bill?
I don’t think it would change but maybe 1-2 degrees. I have a very efficient house (new), the same electric bill as my neighbors (old) but with three times the size.

What do you consider the ‘normal’ temperature for indoors?
I have heard 72 but normal is always relevant.

What would be too hot to live comfortable?
For me the cooler it is at night the better I breathe and sleep but it is no fun to wake up in the middle of the night(or morning) to a cold ass house. My mother and father cut their heat down to ~60 in the winter and I always sleep very good over there.

Nothing! That is for me, my wife anything under 70.

Spot fucking on. I dislike being too hot much more then I dislike being too cold. Hell, even here in Co in the winter me and my wife sleep with the window open at night and the fan on unless an arctic front has blow in. Then we turn the fan off.

I don’t know much about the Maryland weather, but we had 100 straight days of 90+ degree heat here this summer. Over 60 of those were over 100. I think it becomes a little relative…

Well I guess I should have said 85 day = not home. If I’m fully clothed at home it needs to be 80 or below.

I like to keep my lake of fire burning at 5 or 6 million degrees…its free since there is always a fresh soul to burn every few minutes

muhuhahahaha

we had a mild summer, but it’s not unusual to have a short span of 100* days (with humidity), which is a bitch btw

What temperature do you keep your house at?
i try to keep it between 14 and 18 degrees Celsius. (56-64 Fahrenheit)

What would you keep it at if you didn’t have to pay the electric bill?
electric bill is included in the rent, so i can use as much as i want with out having to pay more. The answer to this question is the same as above.

What do you consider the ‘normal’ temperature for indoors?
Normal up here is about 73 Fahrenheit

What would be too hot to live comfortable?
anything above 68 Fahrenheit is torture for me. During the summer i have serious problems sleeping some night. can get as hot as 90 Fahrenheit

What would be to cold?
Well i am used to the cold. We get anything from -25 to -55 during the winter.
I usually turn the heater up if it creeps below 55.

    Winterish Time of year: I don’t even turn on the A/C or heater I just open up all the windows and door to let that cool/cold air in.

  7. 55 F in the summer, Cooler in the Winter.

  8. 10 degrees cooler than outside

  9. 75 F

Did y’all break the record for consecutive 100+ degree days? I used to live in the hill country and summers out there are a bitch.

When it’s cold out, I set the heat to 71, when it’s hot out I set the ac to 68.

If I didn’t have to pay, I’d set the heat to 75+ when it’s cold (I swear it’s no where near that temp anywhere in the house but the thermometer) and probably around 65 in the summer (the air is on probably 80% of the time when it’s set to 68 as it is).

I’ve been talking to my wife about getting new, insulated windows and having testing done for hot/cold spots and getting the house better insulated.

Summer: 73
Winter: 68
