    I’m at 64 during the day, 68 evening and 60 overnight…It’s Boston!

    I’m with Johnson. We own an 80 year old log cabin in the North woods. Lately we’ve been using electric space heaters to warm the place up simply because they are convenient, But the old oil heater, which is in the middle of the cabin and hard to light, still can’t be beat for comfy warmth on a cold morning.

    I WISH I could set the thermostat on 72. Unfortunately, I live with my 75 year old mother who has been cold all her life. She’d set the temperature to 85 if I let her. I finally drew the line at 79. (Not kidding. The woman wore sweat suits in the middle of a Texas summer.)

    62 at my place day and night. You get used to it pretty quickly.

    I usually keep mine at 70. The bedrooms get warm but the rest of the house is still chilly at 70.

    My husband and I have thermostat wars sometimes. I want it at 71 or less to save energy, and he likes 75+ because he doesn’t want to put on a sweater. We live in central Florida, and he likes it cold in the summer. I about freeze!

    It’s sweet that she wants his bed to be warm for him.

    Me too, but in my mid sixties I started needing a space heater for showers (no, not in the shower).

    20°C (68°F) is considered “room temperature” for chemical reactions and experiments.

    …probably doesn’t take into account drafts in older homes…

    We heat with wood, have for 40+ years. Our firewood costs us nothing but labor and a bit of fuel for the chainsaws.
