are you chilly?

We keep our house at 65 from 6am-9pm and 60 while we are sleeping. This seems reasonable to me, but I think we are outnumbered. I have vivid memories of my heat-seeking father constantly fiddling with the thermostat...ah, memories. What temps do you have in your home? Just curious...

Been lurking for a while and am popping up now. We just celebrated our first gotcha anniversary today! Anyway, we have our thermostat anywhere from 61-65 during the day, usually at 61 unless it's unusually cold (as it had been for a bit recently). During the day it gets about 62 or so inside and we're alright. At night we set ours at 53, usually it dips just below that around 4 or 5 in the morning but otherwise it is around 55.

OOh, a delurking post! We have ours set to 68 during the day, but only because our heating system is wonky. At night, 62 if it's really really cold out.

The thermostat in our house is set at 68 from 9am-11pm then down to 65 until 5am when it goes back up to 70 for the morning routine.

Thank goodness for programmable thermostats, otherwise we'd always be fiddling with it!
