What is the temperature in your house?

I set mine at 15 degrees Celsius (or 59 degrees Fahrenheit) in the winter. Whenever my mom visits she makes not so subtle hints that she finds my house too cold . I have also had a couple friends make comments about dressing warm when they visit. I usually turn on the fireplace when I have people over to make them more comfortable. But am I crazy? Is 15 too low???

PS The temperature outside is -8, -15 with the windchill (or 17 degrees Fahrenheit, or 5 degrees with the windchill)

Sorry to let you know, but if visiting you I would grab a sweater and "demand" hot chocolate...

but for the hot chocolate I guess it is not house temperature related

I am normally at 20-21 C

ahaha! I provide beverages of all sorts, the most popular one is hot chocolate lol.

Maybe my house is too chilly. My mom has her home at 22 degrees. We usually gather in the kitchen and I feel like it’s a sauna in there, especially when they are cooking.

Well, maybe I should add that I am Portuguese, so winters in the North of France (last weeks -10C) are a little bit too cold for me and I might over compensate it!

I don't like to arrive home and have it at 21C, it feel too warm if I do so. So when I am work I would put it at 15C, but once I arrive it is up to 20C


Love your signature pic Pixie went to run in the fields yesterday and she had a lot of fun (not as much as your girls in that pic). But I guess fun was over when a shower was in demand for her!

Arctic cat, I've never heard of anyone turning their furnace off at night. We keep our thermostats at 15c but we also have a wood stove. I wouldn't want to tell you how hot the living room gets at times.
