74 during the day using an electric heater. At night it's an electric blanket. We also leave the bathroom door open in the hall. It separates the bedroom from the rest of the MH allowing us to contain the body heat generated while sleeping.

My wife's comfort temp is 68F and mine is 72F. We like to have his and her thermostats.

I don't know how old you are or what your financial situation is, but here is my philosophy on this.

Thermostats are notoriously incorrect with temp readings. I find the setting where I and the DW are comfortable and that's where I leave it day and night. Ours is a basement heat pump which reverts to gas at around 40f automatically. We have most of the heat vents in the bedroom closed so it stays cooler in there, while the bath and front are warm.

I actually like to hear the fan run at night as it acts as white noise drowning out any annoying noises. (Snoring).

I'm too old to give up my comforts anymore. I saved and skimped to get here and now I'm going to enjoy it.

You folks have all good replies, and funny ones too lol! I've always wondered about trying to lower temps, because I tend to try and skimp on things too. Really, you get to an age and wonder if you should be skimping anymore or just enjoy what you want?! I guess it's habits that we get into, some things never change. Maybe some of the 'younger' generation could learn something from this lol. Anyways, I have to go.... need to turn up the thermostat for DW!

68 in the evening, 57 at night over the winter. Where we go, we seldom use the AC at all in the summer.

For those cold, snuggly nights, it is hard to beat a heated mattress pad and a down comforter!
