I, too, would freeze at 74. In fact, I have the windows open right
now, with the outside temp of 77. Normally the AC does not come on
until the temp reaches near 90 if it’s just the cats and me, and if
it’s not too humid. I work in a hot environment and I’m used to the
temperature. For those that want to raise the thermostat, you don’t
have to do it all at once. Just go up a few degrees until your
family gets used to it, then a week or so later, add a few more
degrees. The same idea works when you lower it for winter
temperatures. After all, nature usually does a gradual change, why
should we not use the same idea?
