I can see the state coming up with mandatory compliance devices that assign households limits based on heating and cooling usage, to be part of ones social credit status!

Re: Big Brother Nanny State tells Americans to set their thermostat at 82 degrees while sleeping
great thread, great to know this kind of mumpitz


here, we have a thing where you sign up "voluntarily" to let them set your AC for you on excessively hot days, to save usage.


they tell you you will get a discount if you sign up for the program.

gonna wait a long time for that discount...


imagine them remotely setting your household thermostat and just leaving it there......

once those trying to tell us what to do stop jetting around
the world in their private planes, vacation on their huge
private yachts, live on hundreds of acres lands in the most
huge luxurious buildungs give up their wasteful life, I might
start considering listening to suggestions regarding the temps on my thermostat.

it's time we the people pay a little more attention to those
trying to order us around.

I won't. 82 is hot. DiCaprio can give up all the luxuries he wants. He could start sleeping in a tent next to the bums on Skid Row for all I care. My thermostat stays where it is.

I am confused about this article, i thought "EVERYBODY" was trying to save the environment. Would having your heat cranked that high be adding to their "Climate Change". Wouldn't they want it set colder to use less fossil fuels to heat the house????

They're talking about air conditioning in the summer.

I can see where a Canadian might make that mistake, though.

The EPA would probably tell us we need to keep our thermostats on about 55 degrees in the winter by the same logic.

Looks as if they've backed off due to rampant complaints but have the new setting at 78 degrees, which is still pretty warm.

No they didn't...they where asked "what is the most efficient setting" for "energy star" AC they asked the manufactures, and the consensus was 82 degrees at night IAW mean temperature.

Re: Big Brother Nanny State tells Americans to set their thermostat at 82 degrees while sleeping
I would never get a decent night's sleep at that temperature. Even with a fan blowing right on me.

Supposedly, the ideal sleeping temperature healthwise is in the 60s. I think it's 68, but it might be 62.

So, Nanny State wants you to:
-Eat your GMOs and Frankenplant protein burgers
-Drink your BPA/estrogenic and prescription drug and Fluoride-laden water
-Be bombarded by wifi and who knows what else
-Sleep at a temperature about 20 degrees hotter than optimal
-Take prescription drugs that keep you going just long enough for profit, but never actually be cured

I'm sure there are more rules I'm forgetting on being a good little world citizen. But if you follow them, you might get to the ripe age of 55 before cancer strikes you, which is fine, since it just makes for more profit off of you.

Try 72º

plus, a ceiling fan, two floor fans on either side of bed and in summer when extra hot and humid, I have a portable floor air conditioner for the bedroom.

 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 41173011


Why even bother? Of course, the setting that doesn't require much energy is going to be the most efficient. I've had days where my AC needed servicing, and even with it turned off, the temperature in the house doesn't get higher than 82 in 95+ degree weather. It would be like being asked what is the most efficient setting for a light bulb, and answering, "Off."
