Hardly anyone agrees about what the ideal temperature is for the house. One thing's for sure though, when the weather starts to cool, that little game of thermostat chicken starts. For many couples it's a point of pride to not be the first one to turn that heat on.
And of course there's the matter of the bill. Some folks won't turn on the heat until November 1 even if there's record breaking cold! they save a little money by heating the house with hostility.
Even after the winter sets in the Thermostat Wars can rage on trying to decide the ideal temp for the house.
