room temperature

What temperature is the thermostat in your house set at?

Since we live in this fancy schmancy abode in housing, we don't have to pay a heating bill. There are HUGE differences in temperature upstairs and downstairs. A parka would be nice while I sit down here, while The Bear is upstairs napping in shorts. I kid you not.

We don't have to pay a separate heating bill (hence the fancy schmancy part of housing), so that's really not an issue. I don't like to be wasteful though. While I'm not paying a bill, I don't want to make it insanely warm just because I can.

So what's room temperature?

we keep our home at 67-68 degrees. Our heating bill is ridiculously expensive because of the old, drafty windows. New windows are expensive too and we don't want to be in this house long enough to get our money's worth out of them. Oh, how nice it would be to not have to pay 100 bucks a month for that!

I wish I had a thermostat! We have old school radiators over here. Our thermometer in the kitchen usually reads about 63 during the winter. It's freaking cold!
