No. of Recommendations: 1

Ugh - I would find that very unpleasant. Our houses is at 67.

Me, too. Art keeps his house at 72 to 74 and it is always hot to me.

I keep my temp at 55 during sleeping hours and 60 during waking hours. Occasionally I will cheat and up the temp to 61 which feels quite cozy. Last night I did this and was drinking a mug of hot tea. I was getting quite sweaty and had to turn the heat down. No kidding. But then I wear socks, slippers, a warm shirt, a pullover sweater, warm pants and sometimes a hat. Sometime in the not too distant future, people will be regularly doing this. Right now I'm sure there are people doing it out of necessity because their heating bill is too high, but in the future not only will it be too much to heat, it will perhaps be impossible due to lack of resources. Maybe even in my children's lifetimes.
