How Warm do You Keep Your House in the Winter (a poll) Login/Join

So, not really looking for a temperature as much as a comfort range. We all have our "oh hell no" temp, but it's usually by feel, not by thermometer.

For me, light sweats (pajamas?) To pants with short sleeve shirt. My wife, she's good wrapped in a blanket (NOT my style)

Question:
What's the right temp range for you in the winter?

Choices:
Shorts and a tee shirt
Light pants/pajamas with a shirt
Regular sweats (tops and bottoms) with socks
Heavy sweats with thick socks (or equivalent)
Whatever prevents the heater from kicking on or wood being added to the fire.

 







Sentiment without action is the ruin of the soul.


Help, I'm having premonitions of future flashbacks.

Only in an insane world are the sane considered insane.

Some people listen to the noise of the world,
And some people listen to the quiet.

I wear jeans and a short sleeve shirt of some kind year round. Thermostat is set to 62. Use a small space heater in the bedroom cause the heat doesn't reach there too good. It keeps it 64-66.

But if you needed to put on sweats to stay in your comfortable range, would you but up the temp to 70 to be back in a shirt or resign to sweats?

Heat with wood so some days it's 75 in the house when it's in the 40s outside.

I wear sweat pants and a long sleeve shirt or long sleeve sweater year-round. I cannot sleep with a short sleeve shirt on, even in the summer. My arms always get cold.

Thermostat is currently set to about 66/67 deg.

You should have asked "what do you wear and what does your wife wear" 2 very distinctly different things.

Myself I am pajama pants and a tshirt or an issue sleep shirt

Set to 75 in the winter for heat.

Set to 74 in the summer for AC.

I’ll pay to be comfortable. Average gas bill each month $20.
Average electricity bill each month $10.
I love the Tesla solar system.

68 in the winter, attire is comfortable, light sweats and T-shirt, if the wood stove is running I shed stuff. Summer is usually 76-78 but it depends.

Heat is set to 67 at night.
Definitely can't sleep with it too warm. Rather colder & a heavy blanket.

Right now the thermostat is at 67, which keeps the bedroom at 61. Drafty 90 year old house. I sleep in a long sleeved tee shirt and shorts. When I’m not in bed I’m in street clothes, in winter that’s jeans and a flannel shirt.

I marked heavy sweats. I usually wear khakis or cargo pants with a hoodie sweatshirt. If it's under 50-45 degrees outside, I may add an additional thermal shirt under the sweatshirt.
Our thermostats are set at 68, 69, & 70 in winter, depending on which part of the house (3 separate hvac systems in house).
I'm just cold all the time. I used to love the cold weather when I was young, but I was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes when I was 24, and 35 years later being cold most of the time has become one of the long term issues/results.

Lined jeans, flannel, fleece or wool shirts and wool socks for evenings and weekends. My wife turns the heat up to 65-66 after I go to work.

I set the stat to 66° or so, or the electric bill in the winter is a little high. Before leaving for the day I put it back down to 60° to maintain a small amount of heat and not have to kick in the heat strips or whatever they are. I make up the difference with a hooded (keeping your head warm makes the rest of your body warm) sweatshirt or sweater.

I don't wear sweats. I also have very little body fat (~11%), so I don't have a lot of natural insulation. Thus, I keep the temperature between 68°-73° (I have a "smart" thermostat, so it adjusts per schedule), and usually wear a light sweater or fleece on top of a shirt and jeans.




You can't truly call yourself "peaceful" unless you are capable of great violence. If you're not capable of great violence, you're not peaceful, you're harmless.
