If you had no A/C, when does it start to feel distinctly sultry and steamy, so much so you have difficulty sleeping? I know some actually find this helpful for sleep, but not me...

Personally, my ideal night-time temp for sleeping is about 14C...anything about 20C is warm, but anything above 24C and it feels very uncomfortable. Without a breeze I feel sweaty and itchy. Which is why I doubt I'd want to live in most of the lowland south of the US.

What about you?

I'd say about 23-24ºC. It's not so much the temp, but the lack of movement of the air in the enclosed space of a bedroom that makes it oppressive.

I don't mind cold temps when I'm sleeping.

In England, people start to complain when it doesn't go below about 12c!!

For me, around 20c and above would be uncomfortable. It also depends how humid it is though.

Above 65 degrees is pretty uncomfortable. One reason i like cold weather so much is because I can sleep much better in it.

Overnight temp of 70's is pretty uncomfortable, especially with humidity!

I hate that in-between temperature when it's too warm to have any covers but too cool to not have any covers. Does anyone else have that problem?

Above 70 is too uncomfortable add humidity and then we are talking above 60.

Lack of air movement?
Have you ever tried a ceiling fan?
