I wish this was what it sounds like.

 

For several years, my wife has wanted the thermostat set lower than I would like in the winter. I have just got used to sitting in my house with a coat on. At night she turns the furnace off unless it is supposed to get really cold.

 

This morning when I got up it was 21* outside with a light wind and 59* in the house so I turned the furnace on and set it at 65*. My wife got up about an hour later and started working on food for thanksgiving dinner. After several minutes in the kitchen she says "I'm burning up".

 

I turned off the furnace and opened the front and back door to let the breeze blow through the house.

 

I'M FREEZING!!!!!!

That sound just like my wife, she thinks she owns the T-stat. What have you done to solve the problem or have you-other than shoot her. I have tried talking to her but she says if I would move around more I would also warm up.

Opposite situation in my house.. Wife would like it 75 in here 68 to 70 would be fine with me..

So I bought her an electric blanket, She sits in the easy chair under the warm blanket and I am comfortable at 70 in the house.

However I do go to bed with 2 feet of ice every nite.

Dad feels cold at 72 while Mom says it way too hot.  It was that way before Dad's surgery.  We keep our house 70 to 72.  Was hard to afford keeping it to 70 until I redone all the insulation & tightened up the house.

It must be a woman thing as they get older...hormone levels, hot flashes etc. My wife wears her summer clothes in the house year round. I'm in a fleece with a hat...no hair got to keep my head warm or I'm done.

My perfect end to a day when I've been working outside in the cold is to come in to a toasty warm house, sit down in my comfortable chair, and go to sleep. Maybe someday.

Sounds like my house. This year I finally got my wood stove up and running. Now the wife can have her 67* and when I come home cold, I can start the stove and sit close to that to warm up.

You're aware of which one that is, right? I thought the acceptable temp was 64, but since getting married I have compromised and raised that to 67. My wife still thinks 81 is about right.
