Your feelings about inside temperatures in the US

I realize the results might be off given the fact that most of you are gentlemen wearing coats in the office, but I'll try anyway.

The colder the better here in the South, the humidity factor alone makes it nice to walk into a cold space.

How cold should it be inside, then? 50, 60, 70?
Do you keep your house warmer in the winter than you do in the summer?

In the summer I set the temp @ 70 when at home, 78 when not, during the winter, I set the temp @ 62 when home, 58 when not......I hate the heat, period, and I hate the furnace, as it dries my skin out with the lack of humidity in the air, and I have a humidifier on both of my units, upstairs and down.

I hate being cold indoors. As such, I keep the heat cranked to almost 90 in winter. I think I got this from my grandfather, who kept his coal furnace running hot. I still miss the warmth of coal heat -- much better than electric or gas.

I also don't like cold air blowing on me in the summer, unless I've just come in from the heat. I find many public buildings far too frigid.

I like it cold, around 60-65 degrees all year round indoors is perfect for me.

Yeah, there's no option for "Icicles forming on the AC vents, please."

I like the AC set to slightly below 70 and the windows open simultaneously to get some fresh air. Not very eco-friendly, I'm afraid.

I'm with ya, and if I was worried about being EF, I would get rid of my big ass SUV first....the AC must stay!

it's way too cold in my office. i don't wear my coat to be proper, I do it to stay warm. still, I have to sit on my hands when I'm not typing. I'd prefer the temp to be between 70-75 degrees, assuming there isn't direct sunlight streaming in the windows.

Too low. FAR too low. Imagine the shock when inside it is ~70 F and you leave to go outside and it is 105+!!! Ridiculous. Drives me potty, quite frankly.

We live in a c. 1920 house. In the winter, we set the thermostat at 65f and bring out the down comforters. In the summer, we keep the A/C at 72f, as we find this temp to be comfortable.

I must be some kind of tightwad mizer, for even in the extreme South, during the summer, Mr. and Mrs. Vintage Gent keep it at 82 during the day (regardless of whether anyone's home) and 77 at night.
