(WFRV) — A federal program recommends people keep their homes between 78 and 85 degrees – and people on social media have some thoughts.
CNN reports the guidelines are provided by Energy Star, a government-backed program to promote energy efficiency.
The recommended settings vary based on the time of day – 78 degrees when you wake up, 85 degrees during the day, 82 degrees when you’re sleeping.
Energy Star says homeowners can save about $180 each year with a properly-set, programmable thermostat.
Some groups, such as the National Sleep Foundation, say keeping a room around 65 degrees makes for the best sleep.
