night time temps?

What temp do you set your thermostat at night? It's pretty darn cold at night in my area so I've put my winter down comforters on our bed. I love them!

My problem is DH likes the temp set at 69 but that's too warm for me. I love sleeping in cool rooms and look forward to winter and cold nights. I may be way off base thinking 69 is too warm.

What temp to you set your home thermostat at night?

67 or 68. I think it depends on how heavy your blankets are. I've also noticed times when I'm roasting at 68 and it seems dramatically cooler at 67.

Like you, I prefer 65 with warm blankets! But, my DH likes it at 70! Ugh. I have been known to get up in the middle of the night and turn it down, lol.

You may think we are crazy but we turn the thermostat down to 50. I love it. During the day we have it between 60 & 62. I'm looking forward to Thanksgiving with our DS & DD and their families but I will be wearing the coolest clothes, no shoes and walking outside occasionally to cool off since we will turn it up to 69-70.

We keep our thermostat at 62°, but it tends to be cooler in the bedroom.

We put ours at 55 but the room rarely gets that cold (outside temps 30s-40s) I prefer a cool room and DH doesn’t care.

Our bedroom is at 55 degrees.

I cannot sleep without blankets on and the hot flashes come on frequently!

Poor DH sleeps with the covers over his head and I am hanging one leg out to cool off!

Thanks, everyone, for your replies. After I opened the window DH closed it during the night thinking that it was accidentally opened. I may have to petition DH and mention my night time heat surges.

I live in Mexico, and we don't have heat or air conditioning here, so the nighttime temperature inside is similar to whatever it is outside. In May, it's usually in the high 70's or low 80's in my apartment at night, and in the winter, it gets down in the 50's.

Science is on your side. Your body needs to cool down a bit to achieve your best rest so your best temperature is somewhere between 60-67 degrees. There are other health benefits to sleeping in a cool room, too, like boosting your metabolism and increasing your production of melatonin, which can help to ward off some diseases.

My thermostat is set to go down to 62 at night and I have it start cooling down about an hour before I head off to bed so I can get to sleep right away.

night time temperature

Here in SoCal the night time temperature has dropped to the low 50s (cold for us!). We rarely turn on the heater during the day, and if we do, we turn it off at night. Unless it gets down in the 40s we leave our bedroom window open at night, so I think it was about 52-54º in here. I did put the heavy (fake) down comforter on our bed.

I like the house to be 66 degrees at night. In the cold weather I sleep with flannel sheets and a down comforter and am nice and toasty. During the day I keep it at 72.

We just installed a new programable thermostat. I like it very cool at night; my sister wants it so hot you'd think you we're living in the tropics instead of Maine. So after several months of living together, we've finally agreed on 65 at night. The vents in my room are closed and covered, and I have a fan facing my bed and often open the window at night to get some fresh cool air. She sleeps upstairs with a heater going. The cat roams around everywhere, uncaring about the dang temperature as long as there is fresh cat food on demand.

65 during the evening or daytime on the weekends, 60 at night. Bedrooms are on the second floor so that thermostat is ALWAYS set to 60....we have lived in this 100 year old house 31 years and it has pretty much been changed only a few times .

I live in southern NH and it gets COLD!!!

I set the thermostat at 60 which it almost never reaches but if it does, I get up and set it to even lower. It would have to go below 55 for me to let the heater go on. I enjoy cold nights and don't get enough of them here in SoCal. So nice to snuggle in under the blankets and comforter. I love winter sleeping!

I am on the NE coast of FL so we don't always need ours at night (I prefer not to unless its 40 or below). When we do need I prefer it on the cooler side like you do, no higher than about 66. When DH gets up on cold mornings he will put it up to about 70 when he gets in the shower. I ,mostly have solved the problem by getting him an electric blanket for Christmas a couple of years ago.
