Where do you set your thermostat?

In winter? Or in summer? I usually keep mine between 65 and 68 degrees in winter when we are home. But I turn it way down when we go out. I don't have central air, so I don't have a thermostat setting for summer. We just use fans and it usually stays around 70-75 in the house, even on the hottest days. I am curious because some people have said that seems low- 65 degrees in winter, but it's comfortable for us. I used to live in an apartment where the heat was included in the rent, so there was a lock on the thermostat. It was set on 68 for the whole winter and we couldn't move it.

In the winter time I usually keep it anywhere between 70 to 73 degrees although at times it will get to hot in here so I will knock it down to about 68 but if I get any lower than that I start to get cold. But in the Summertime I keep it setting on 68 and from time to time I might bump it up to 70. I try to keep it at a steady temperature all year round.

I live in California, I do not have air conditioning. In the winter, we might have the heat turned up to 70 at the highest, but there are only a few nights that you really need it.

Ours is set in the comfort zone as out thermostats say. That is anywhere from about 68-72 degrees. It is usually on the lower end of that. In the summer it stays at about 70-75 on our central air.
