It’s a debate that you may have been having in your very own home for years, but now everyone is having it online on social media.
Energy Star, a government-run program for energy efficiency, says Americans should keep their thermostat at 78 degrees when they're at home, 82 degrees when they're asleep, and 85 when they’re away.
The Department of Energy says you’ll save about 3 percent on your bill for every degree you raise the set temperature.
But people on Twitter just weren’t having it, including Country singer Travis Tritt.
Just saw a news report that recommends 78 to 81 degrees at night! Personally, I like a cold room at night. Therefore, my bedroom thermostat is set at 63 degrees at bedtime. However, I do have geothermal HVAC at my house, so anyone who doesn’t like it can kiss my well rested ass.— Travis Tritt (@Travistritt) August 21, 2019
When the thermostat is set to 82, but you're being energy efficient pic.twitter.com/nFMRysmBGm— I am so sad (@HayekandHockey) August 19, 2019
My bed in the morning if I sleep with the thermostat at 82. Foolishness! pic.twitter.com/BypfzQWs9R— bad (or sick) guy! 🇭🇹 (@_mgpl) August 20, 2019
What’s your thermostat on when you go to sleep?— Nash Grier (@Nashgrier) August 21, 2019
Just turn the goddamned thermostat off if you’re going to follow this bullshit— Andy Richter (@AndyRichter) August 19, 2019
ONTD, do you agree? At what temperature do you set your thermostat?
