How Low Should It Go?

Thermostat

Today on Bruce and the Kennel Club we discussed air conditioners and thermostats. My roommate is all about saving money and doing everything in a way to save money. I completely agree with saving money; however, living in Louisiana in the middle of the summer is miserable if the house is not at a comfortable setting.

Normally when I go to bed I will set the thermostat on 71/72. If I had it my way, it would be between 68-70, but I want to work around my roommate’s wishes. I’ll wake up in the middle of the night and be sweating because she has set it back up to 75/76. I feel like this becomes a problem when I wake up and cannot sleep. Krista also feels like the air conditioner should be on 68, because even with a full-blast ceiling fan on, it is only circulating hot air.

We asked you on Facebook what you all set your AC’s on during these hot, summer months. The majority of you said somewhere between 68-72. My question is does setting the thermostat from 71 to 75 really make that much of a money saving difference? After completing a couple google searches, I have come to the conclusion that while everyone is not at home, the air conditioner should be raised to 78-80 degrees, but when everyone is at home (sleeping) it can be between 70-72.

It surely is hard to save money and be comfortable at the same time.
