Default The Thermostat wars!

Hi. Anyone else out there fighting the Thermostat battle with their partner/significant other or family member? My husband and I are going at it daily! He likes it colder, and of course I like the warmth. He sets the heat at 60/65, and I sneak over and turn it up when he is in another room. And back and forth it goes. He has been gone all week on business, and my kids and I are livin' la vida loca here. Temp inside set at 72 degrees, and we are dancing around barefoot in shorts and tank tops while it is a balmy 31 degrees outside! Anyone else out there ready about to go to blows over the inside temp?

My husband & I do that dance with the A/C. This time of year we use the woodburning stove. There is no control other than how much wood gets put in.

My wife is great like that. She keeps it warm when Im not there (around 72) and then turns it down to 68-69 when I come home. Such a sweetie...

Oh, yeah...especially in the summer time with the a/c. He says he has icicles and I'm just getting comfortable. But when you reach a certain age, those "personal summers" last year round and make you love winter!

I'm the same way.I have to have it cold in the bedroom.I open up the window,turn on the ceiling fan and let it get good and cold in there.I just need it to be warm when I get up in the morning.I can program my thermostat to turn on in the morning to take the chill off.

I sleep with a fan on me at all times. My husband complains of being cold.. but he knows to just get another blanket. He can pile layers on to keep warm.. I can strip down to try and cool off.. but when that doesn't work.. then I am left with no choice. haha

I too need to have it cold at night! That's because I have a sheet, a blanket, and then a comforter, and if I have it warm-I would be too hot. Then, I walk around with a robe, and feel just fine.

Yep gotta have the fan. Hey it has actually been proven that it is healthier to sleep in a cooler room!!! I have two blankets on me and he is like, why do you have two blankets on? If you want warm turn on the heat and close the window. I tell him that he just doesnt get it.

Wait till the bill arrives! Personally, I like it around 65-68F max, too warm and I'm uncomfortable. Happens at work too. The women are always complaining how cold it is and freezing and the men are complaining how warm it is and sweating....must be one of those Venus/Mars things.
