When we are at home the heat is set at 66-68 degrees.

When we are gone during the day (at work) it is set at
60 (depending on how cold it is.

I live in So Cal and I have never used the heat yet in the 2 years I live here, EVEN when it snowed 12/31/14!! Right now it is a comfortable 76 degrees since I didn't leave the kitchen window open last night. I thought fall would NEVER arrive and had the A/C set at 80.

You ladies would die in my house. We don't even have heat, just a woodstove. We usually make a fire when it's 60deg. inside. Our downstairs stays nice most of the time, but the upstairs is cold so we bundle up. If I get too cold I run a small ceramic heater in whatever room I happen to be in. I also use one to heat the bathroom before I take a shower. Our room is over the garage and gets near freezing, which we find excellent sleeping weather. We love flannel sheets and a featherbed plus several blankets. The last couple of years I have used a heating blanket, but keep only my side warm.

We heat with 10 face cord a year for $650, and still have a utility bill of $150 a month, so I would not want to pay for central heat. And one thing I love about heating with wood is that it is silent...I hate hearing a furnace run. Different strokes for different folks!

I WISH I could put my heaters on high, but it would trip the circuit breakers, and then there would not be any heat. If I can get it to 65, I guess I can stand it.

Thermostat is set at 72 during the day and 68 at night.

Inside temp is 73 most days. Our house is so small we just use a electric heater when one of us is home. The dogs have fluffy coats and fluffy bedding. Most times I walk around barefoot or maybe pair of socks if it gets too chilly.

We converted a bedroom to a tv room and heat it in the winter with a small electric heater, it's cheaper than heating the whole house. Same thing for my sewing room, just heated when I'm using it.

Winter temp is 68 and summer is 75, as I get older I find I do not tolerate heat as well.

76 year round... and I have five layers of covers on the bed.

I used to be hot all of the time... then I lost 112 pounds and haven't been warm since.

At my age now I refuse to be uncomfortable. I cut back on heat and no a/c when I was younger.
I keep it about 72-74 in winter, 64-68 in summer.
I also have small dogs and most of all my Cockatiel needs warmth, my cats prefer warmth too.
I use an electric heater for the bird.
