My new hi-tech thermostat that came with my new furnace. I have to say it's taken some adjustment to go from one that roared to life and made quite a bit of noise while heating or cooling the house to one that barely is noticeable when running. I haven't played with the new thermostat yet but I hear it has wifi and can talk to the plumber and tell him what is wrong as well as allow me to manage the thermostat away from home. That will take some adjustment too (not to mention reading how to set it up)

62 degreesortable when it is that isn't heating, that is cooling where I would be using this thermostat. Of course on a cold winter day in Portland. I can imagine that an interior temperature of 62 would be comfortable when it is 0 outside.

62 is normal for heat in my house. I do not have a warm house by most people's standards. If I am active that is even warm. If I am mostly sitting still working or relaxing it might go up to 64 to stay a little warmer.

We have whatever furnace came with the house, but we use a Nest thermostat and love it. And YOW! That's cold. We heat/cool to about 74!!

I keep mine about 64. If the kids are lucky and the wind is really kicking I MAY turn it up to 66. lol

Runt, I'm glad I'm not the only one with these settings. At times I feel like an alien among all the folks who think 67 is the low for the night instead of higher than my house stays during the daytime...

I am right there with ya in alien land. lol I have several friends that bring sweaters and slippers when they come to my house because they know it is going to be "cold". My kids don't even notice and I didn't keep it warmer when they were babies either. They are rarely sick too btw. :)

My boss says the same. In fact the teachers and staff at the school seem to think it is odd his kids rarely have a sick day. He's rarely sick either. Mostly allergies. I rarely get sick myself except when I am having to deal with a too warm office building and going in and out of that when it is particularly cold or windy here. I firmly believe the extremes going in and out are more negative to your health. LOL. I have friends who do the same.

That's interesting. My MIL read a year or two ago that cooler house temps actually lead to more colds. Ever since then she's raised her in house temp and has been less sick. I'd vote for warmer house = less sick also.
And there are definitely some places where I'm sure to pack a sweater and warm socks before I visit. =

Why do you equate a warmer home with less illness? a cooler temp leads to less growth of bacteria and viruses. You don't get sick from being cold, just like going outside with wet hair won't make you sick. I think the extreme temp change has something to do with it too LG. I, of course, encourage frequent hand washing.

Over the years, Industrial Engineering Studies have established that the ideal sitting work temperature is seventy-one (71) degrees.
