Thread: Inside Temps

  1. #1

    Default Inside Temps

    I'm not sure if this is the right place for this question. But since the btu question is here....
    What temp is the inside of your home in the winter? We have our wood stove in the basement. Our inside temp
    is usually between 76 to 80 degrees. Upstairs is between 65 to 70. I start adding more wood if it drops down to 72 in the living room. If I use our Yotul stove in the living room, we're usually opening the windows.

    What is the outside temp while the inside temp is .....?

    If my inside temp was 76 to 80, I'd have to be stripped down naked....and nobody want's to see that!
    65+/- suits me fine, regardless of outside temp.

    Heating season, Sept-May, the thermostat is set to 68, doesn't matter what outside temp. But we're on natural gas. If we are feeling chilled, or just for fun, we'll fire up the wood stove and the downstairs (where the stove is), might go to 80 and the upstairs into the 70s. In the summer, the house is what it is 60-77. Lots of rainy days, the house drifts down to the lower 60s, lots of sun up into the 70s.

    Im on gas as well and the thermostat is set on 66. Likewise. Once in a while ill light a fire in the woodstove and thaw out watching a movie. I die when a house is in the 70's any time of year regardless of outdoor temps.

    My place is on propane and I have the T-Stat set @ 63 during the heating season.
    During the summer the temps can range from the 60's to 90's depending on the day and amount of sun.
