Summer Heat A/C

What do you all have your thermostat set on? Mine is on 78, but thinking of going down a degree.
I realize many have multiple units, programmable thermostats etc. Just curious as to the basic setting when at home.

    A/C set at 74° 24/7 but in winter heat is set at 76° during day and auto cut back to 66° at night. Long time ago I decided I wasn't taking my $$$ with me so I'm going to be comfortable while here!

    I keep mine at 73 when I'm home and 75 when I'm at work.The programable thermostat does all the work for me :) My house is very well insulated and has alot of shade trees,so my power bill is still less than $150 a month(including 2 fridges,window A/C in the barn,and everything else in the house,I'm all electric) :woohoo:

    When it gets real hot and humid we do 78-79 on the first floor and 77-78 for the bedrooms on the second floor at night. When temps are lower and humid we drop our iside to 76 at times to kick the damp.
    Thank you,

    75 here in FL. Once the "fall" or "winter" roll around, we turn it off completely. Only on during the spring/summer.

    Hahahahaha, during the day mine is often set at 88º or higher, my thermostat only goes up to 90º, about sunset I turn it down to 85º at the lowest. At 8:10PM tonight it's 86º at my desk and comfortable. I don't mind the heat as much as the humidity.

    By the end of summer 80º will be chilly if not cold. :lol:

    I'd buy a frig to sit in. :whistle:

    When we get the hot stuff here, the stat is set to 70-72 :ohmy:

    We won't see daytime highs below 90º until after Labor Day or later. We had a Thanksgiving years ago that was in the 90º's. By that time of year you really get sick of it. The humidity is what really makes you uncomfortable.
    Colorado Springs the temperature is 93º and the humidity is 6%!!!! I would love weather like that! :laugh:


  • I live in Arizona so no choice but to blast it at 75 degrees....we pay for it in summer but have 9 months of pure sunny bliss...
  • PhilsGrillPhilsGrill Posts: 2,256
    Yeah well in six months when it's 33 up there it will be 73 down here! :laugh:
  • bitslammerbitslammer Posts: 818
    MON-FRI 76*F from 8AM to 4PM then 74*F from 4-10PM then 72*F from 10PM to 8AM.

    SAT & SUN much the same but only 74*F for the day.
