My thermostat is turned down to 62 about 30 minutes
before I go to bed.
I have a sheet, quilt and down comforter on my bed.
This is a new addition
I run a humidifier in my bedroom
most nights in the winter......
In the morning a little before getting up I turn it up
to 70 to warm cottage and most of day it is on 68 degrees.
I wear a turtleneck with my slack or jeans and sweater over that
and am quite comfortable. If near the zero
mark I wear a light weight long underwear top also.
Might add there is no fat on this One Woman who
stays about 108 lbs and much of the time I am
doing something - computer good for me as it makes
me sit still.
Have heard many comment they keep their homes
warmer. Some of my children when they visit
say "turn the heat up" :) My son always kept his thermostat
similar to mine.
it is a little different
as not feeling the best
and may keep it on 70
a lot of the day.
At the moment cold, windy
sun streaming in windows and I may turn it back
Warmer then this is too warm
Will add that I sure miss my wood stove
and fireplace but do not need to be
bringing wood inside at this stage
of my life.
But still have thoughts of
"where could I put a small wood stove :)"
In the summer keep the temperature
set at 78. Cottage always comfortable
with fans running and air conditioning
rarely comes on.
I can remember a neighbor when I lived
in the city and the home so hot
when I made a visit.
Their bill was 3 times or more then mine and I did not
like to share what I owed - as they could not understand
their thermostat was set to high.
