What's the most comfortable room temperature in winter?


What's the most comfortable room temperature in winter? My older brother says 76-78 which I think is too warm. I'm good at 70-72 maybe 73

72.

For me, low to mid 60's is good. But I'm a big guy, lots of 'natural insulation'. And I wear a hoodie and long pajama pants pretty much all the time in the winter, though I roll the sleeves up most of the time.

I think it's really comfortable while my mom is "freezing". Go figure.

I haven't been in a position to control the thermostat until recently. I have mine set to 68, which I thought was high based on my past experience.

I guess I could turn it up, but my apartment runs warm and I'm cheap. My electricity bill was literally cut in half when it got cooler.

I like it at 22-23 degrees Celsius (about 73 Fahrenheit).

73-80 is ideal. 68-85 is good. 60-90 is tolerable if I'm trying to save money and dress appropriately. And the season doesn't affect what I prefer, only what I compromise on.

I always thought the range between 65-70F is generally believed to be the most comfortable. The energy efficient/saving PSAs use to always advise us to keep it at 65F or even a bit lower. Most homes I visited, in the winter they usually keep it at the high 70s, which I personally think is way too warm.

Enjoy any good things, even the little and menial ones, as you will never know what impending distresses could descend upon you in a moment.

If I fail to adapt to the fault of others, it is my fault.

Here in Miami we have endless summer and record high temperatures / humidity all the time. We need the air conditioner to cool us 24/7/365. We set the a/c at 77 during the day and 75 at night.



And I always thought this would be
the land of milk and honey
Oh but I came to find out that it's
all hate and money
And there's a canopy of greed holding me down.

76-77

Any higher than that and it gets unpleasant. Any lower than that and my feet get cold unless I'm wearing socks. Sounds like a small matter to just wear socks but I hate to wear socks.

There's a thing called room temperature that most people feel comfortable at all times of the year. It's just over 21 C here, and just right

74 but that costs too much. I'm not ready for a $200 electric bill.

I see at work that the skinny people are always cold and wearing big jackets. The fatties all have little USB fans on their desks since they get hot easily.

I forgot that song (and video) ever existed. Watching it now, it seems odd that that was ever something anyone would ever watch and think "Awesome!"

65-70 but I like wearing socks.






And all our yesterdays have lighted fools the way to dusty death
Out, out, brief candle! Life's but a walking shadow,
A poor player that strut's and fret's his hour upon the stage and is heard no more,
It is a tale told by an idiot, full of sound and fury, signifying nothing.
