"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." - lindytoes

I swear to God you could hang and age meat in Linda's house which is why we couldn't ever share a house together. There would be a constant fight over control of the thermostat. No way could Linda ever leave it alone. She'd be constantly messing with it.

We keep our house at 72 in the wintertime and 76 in the summer. I set it where we want it and then leave it alone. In the spring and fall when the weather is pretty outside, which means 72 - 82 degrees, I just turn off the Air and open the windows.

Linda also likes fans blowing constantly and I get chilled. It especially bothers my neck and I get a crick in my neck when it has cold air blowing on it.

My wife and I are a whole lot more alike when it comes to our temperature preferences. We both prefer to be a little warm. 72 degrees is not "too hot." When it's cold enough to hang meat.... it's too cold.
