There’s a new report out that says you should keep your thermostat at 78 degrees when you’re home . . . and 82 at night.  And people on Twitter are LOSING IT . . . as one person said, quote, “I see we’ve decided to give up on sleeping.”

There’s a new report out from Energy Star, which is the EPA program that promotes energy efficiency.  And it has new recommendations for where you should be setting your thermostat . . .

 

 

1.  78 degrees when you’re home.

 

2.  85 when you’re not home.

 

3.  82 at night.

As one person said, quote, “I see we’ve decided to give up on sleeping . . . or having pets that aren’t native to the rain forest.”  Another said, quote, “82 when you’re sleeping?  Yeah, on the sun.”
