Home temperature


what temperature do you try to keep your home at?
we keep our house at 20C when we are in it, below this even warm blooded me gets freezing fingers especially when working at the computer for long periods of time.

There is a hope that we could all wrap up warmer and turn down the temperatures in our homes, but is this really practical when so many of us now work at home and need to keep it warm enough to be able to type?

what do you think?

We're in the US...we keep our house at about 68 or 69 in the winter, 75 in the summer...but sometimes I get cold in the winter and bump it up closer to 72. ;-)

That is still too chilly to me...lol! I try to keep the house about 72. If I can turn it off completely, like now, I will. The windows are already open. Thanks for stopping by from the hop!

I know that when i get a house im going to really have to pay attention to temperature... Itll probably be in the 64-66 range... and just bundle up to keep warm if i need to, but i really hate being cold... So...

We used to keep it 65F in winter and 80F in summer. Then I was pregnant during our very hot and humid summer this past year.. and now that Rissa is here we keep it closer to 70F.

I figure what I save not driving to work makes up for the change in house temp :)

The temperature thing in our place is rather odd. We control the temperature for the entire building (2 units). Therefore, we tend to keep it on the high side, about 70F in Winter. There's no need to have it on at all in the Summer since we have no A/C.
