Default What's the proper temperature for your living room?

If you have a fireplace/stove, shouldn't you keep your house about 80 degrees? I'm not completely old man yet, but I find the boiling furnace that old folks keep there homes at, and used to drive me crazy, kinda comforting now. GF, not so much. Maybe it's my manopuase, or working outside all day, but coming into a roasting house feels kinda nice.

What say you?

My wife and I like it cooler, around 68 degrees during the day. At night we turn off the heat entirely and crack open a window because we both sleep better at around 62 degrees. We're in our early 60s.

We keep our house at 68 no wood stove forced gas heat.

I prefer to have a blanket over me rather than blasting the heat cheapskate maybe either way I’m more comfortable at 68 and yes even at 80 degrees my feet are cold

We keep our thermostat at 70 that way it keeps the upstairs bedrooms in the mid to upper 60's. We freeze when we go over to Portland to my FIL's and he keeps it at 68 and what a difference it makes.

Mostly, we are often mid 70s to high 70s in living room during the day with wood if hanging out in that room. Without wood, 70. Night temp is set to 55 by program although it doesn't ever get that cold by morning. Bedroom we have set to go down to 62 or 70 if we have a cold/flu. My house has 4 heating zones each with a programmable thermostat with two wood fireplaces, one upstairs and one downstairs.

We have thermostat set at 19 deg C (for Canadian) when we are home and 15 at night and when we are out. American translation is 66.2/59 deg F.

Wife is 60, I'm going on 58.

Day to day I like 67/68 for just bumming around the house. For sleep, I open the window down to about 15 degrees outside and then I have to close it. For summer, I like to keep it at 69/70. It's funny because 1-2 degrees makes a BIG difference on the feel of the house. We built our home in 2015 and really insulated it well in Idaho.

For us, the changes in humidity affect sensed comfort temp level more than the actual temp. Sometimes 70-71 feels too warm and other times not enough.

Seems I need a little more heat to feel comfortable. I'm 73 and that's the temperature that suits me during the day. Sometimes I'll get up and go out the back door to stand in the cool/cold night air a couple of minutes because it feels good on my skin. For sleeping, I like 66ish. I don't pull the blanket up past my knees till around 4:00AM. Before then it's a sheet and some little light thing.

We are a 69 degree house. I usually end up sleeping on top of the covers or with the top sheet only because with two boxers in bed with us, it gets warm with those knuckleheads snuggling up next to you.

We are a house divided, wife likes it at 70-73 and I prefer it at 68-70 during the day. Can't stand coming in from being outside where it's cool to a hot house. I'm very uncomfortable in the heat. At night temp goes down to 68 and we both throw the covers off and have the fan on low.....

We both in our late 50's.....

We have ours at 67* when we're not home, and at 69* on the days we are. That goes down to 64* during sleepy time. My whole family sleeps better on the cool side.

Funny you mention that - when my inlaws come over from Redmond, they are always complaining about being cold at our place too!! But, they keep their place cooler than ours - must be the difference in moisture over here on the wet side.

The human body is funny in how it regulates temperature. When I was in the Navy we kept our workspace at a constant 70 because of the computers. There was very little humidity shift in the submarine, but some days you were cold and others it felt hot. We knew that the temp was constant by looking at a calibrated thermometer.

Our house is right at 70 in the morning and evening and 66 at night and when we are gone during the day. I am comfortable and the wife is always cold. We are both 50ish.

Winter: 68* day and 65* night. If it feels a bit chilly the gas fireplace kicks the evening temp up to 71* or 72*.


Summer: 72* day and 68* night.

Thank goodness I am rather indifferent to the house temperature. Anything above sixty and below eighty degrees is fine. My wife's thermostat was broken at the start of menopause and remains unfixed twenty years later. She can open a window to cool off when the house is sixty five or get teeth chattering cold and sit by the fireplace when the thermostat says it is seventy-two. My favorite temperature has become and likely always will be 'yes dear.'

I try to keep the living room at 70 or so. We have only electric heat, so we dont get to have that warm toasty feeling that we had from a wood stove growing up. I miss that at times. It sure takes the chill off when coming in from the elements.

As for the bedroom, of course we try and maintain 69 as much as possible...

71. Too hot for me but it’s too cold for the wife and kids. So I lose
68 at night but if I can get away with it I’ll drop it to 60.
I usually get yelled at for such a maneuver
Often times a fire gets built in the evening so it creeps to 76 and the wife and kids slowly come out of hibernation. It’s funny how the energy level of the house rises along with the temperature

It sounds like I'd be right at home in Baltz's house.
It's 82.7 as I sit here by the wood stove watching a mediocre cowboy movie.
The kitchen about 70.
The bedrooms a little less. It'll be a few degrees cooler in the morning.

Default What's the proper temperature for your living room?

During the day the house is 68 and at bedtime it only kicks in if the temp drops below 60 in the house. Melissa hates paying for heat and since we don’t have a wood burner her suggestion if I’m cold is to put on a sweater. I’d like it a bit warmer during the day myself. I’ve realized that I’ve become Mr. Rogers, as soon as I get home, I take off my shoes and put on a hoodie and a pair of slippers.

No fireplace/wood stove. So during the day in the winter 64-68. Heaters off at night so it'll go down as low as 58. Usually take the chill off in the mornings.
Summer 65-78. Sometimes the air will get turned on above 75. Depends on how the wife feels. Front door is open during the day for probably 9 months+ for fresh air and for the dogs to go in and out... Living on the south coast has it's advantages.

I say when I had my wood stove insert and Wood was pretty free for the cutting my house was pretty warm I enjoyed being in shorts in the winter time .sometimes I would heated the attached garage by leaving the kitchen door open.
But I might start to sweat at 80°.

I like it warm, too; 75* to 80*ish at the woodstove, shorts and tees all winter.
I work hard for that wood and I'm gonna burn it!
I do get a little burnt (ugh) out in the spring after making two fires a day from October to April, but it almost feels like the "meaning of life" all winter. When it's cold and wet and nasty outside and all you have is a woodstove, you get pretty attached to the process of staying warm!
There's few things that make me happier than looking in the wood shed at two years of cord wood and bins full of cedar shake scraps! That and a case of top ramen and you're pretty set up 😉

I sleep in my dual fold long handles year around. With 2 pairs of wool socks.
75 and up is good for me. My feet are always cold too.
Wifey not so much.
We have a gas furnace and fireplace, but the battle of the thermostat goes on 24/7.
Who ever walked past it last is the most comfortable.We both like it turned down to about 65 at night.
Close the bedroom door and open the windows.

I like it cold and I'm tight... Haha The other half deals with it during the day but we both like it at night. 64 during the day and 60 at night. Thermostat says 65 currently and I'm in shorts and t on the couch

My wife is British and the British go into heat stroke if the temperature gets above 75. The joke is, if the sun is shining and it is above 55 degrees F then the sunscreen comes out. During the day our house is 66 then 69 during the evening. 64 for sleeping.

I keep mine at 69-70 during the day, 63 or so at night. Funny, but when we have a relatively rare cloudy/gloomy day here, I feel a chill in my bones and want to stand in front of a fireplace that I don't have.
Still thinking about electric fireplaces.

When I was wearing the leg brace for three months, light workout shorts was all I could get on. Wore them everywhere no matter the temperature outside. Couldn’t believe how comfortable I was and how little effect wearing long pants has on keeping warm. My legs and feet were ice cold to touch but can’t say it bothered me all that much.

Time for a hijack. The ex and I used to race down at the old Eugene Speedway. 3/8ths mile asphalt track. My car was #6, her's was #9. Mine a white top, blue bottom, her's was the opposite. I may still have some pics of us running nose to tail around the track. Had a lot of fun down there.

I like it when it's most comfy.
For me.
During the summer, it's a whole different story.

62 during away time and at night. 66 at home time. Heat comes on to 66 just before I wake up and then shuts back down to 62 while I am at work.

If it wasn't for the dog I would turn the heat off at night and/or close the bedroom door and open the window. But since she stays home by herself during the day and can't sleep in the bed at night I compromise and just turn the heat down a bit and she sleeps on the floor by the bed. She has no undercoat and appears to be various leftover dog parts that don't all fit together that well so I worry about how warm she is.

Just warm enough for the rats to be comfortable in the crawl space. Got the third one tonight.
Actually whatever temperature the wife likes it at. I never touch the thermostat just layer up or down grab a blanket if I’m cold. I think it’s usually at 71.
IF I had a wood stove it would be 80 degrees with the back door open! Just something feels good about having that nice radiating heat with enough of a breeze to keep you comfortable.

Looked over my shoulder and saw that that the woodstove could use a couple more chunks of wood added, so while I was up I checked the digital thermometer on the thermostat. 79 degrees. No wonder this flannel shirt seemed a bit too warm to have on in the living room.

We start using the wood stove sometime in October and it will go sometime into April. Windows and sliding glass door out to the back can be opened if we start to climb too far into the 80's. If global warming is centered around Hillsboro, I may be the primary cause.

Bedrooms at the other end of the house are much cooler for sleeping comfort.
