What temp do you put your thermostat on in the winter?

I put mine at 69, but I wonder if you really save money putting it lower.

Thanks!

Usually 70 during day and 67 at night. Fortunately, I have southern exposure across the back of the house so on sunny days, it's warm and toasty without the heat running. We also budget our bill over the year so I don't know if lower helps.

61 or sometimes 58 degrees. We wear sweaters or hoodies around the house though.

64-66 depending who is the last one at it. We have oil heat which dries me out so I like it down.

Standard Honeywell Programmable has four settings on weekdays, and two on the week-end. You can have it warmer, when you get up for less money, and fewer sore throats.

72-74 right now. We are renting an old townhome that REALLY needs some new windows. Just walking past a window, you get goosbumps. You can feel the cold air coming through. So even with the heater on, it feels like 68 ish. I am SO happy to be moving to a house with brand new windows in 3 weeks

You can also save money using space heaters.
