A: Heating and cooling temperatures are individual, which makes this a difficult question to answer. We suggest that you work with your system to find a temperature that makes you most comfortable and then set your thermostat accordingly. If you prefer the temperature very cool at night, but warmer during the day, make sure you aren't running your systems around the clock to achieve these temperatures. For every ten degrees you lower your thermostat to reach your desired temperature you increase operating costs by 15%.
