I know it’s important for all of us to think about our energy consumption and do our part not to accelerate the destruction of the planet.
That being said . . . this is just a flat-out NO.
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.
Well . . . a reporter from the CBS station in Tampa tweeted out that report yesterday morning, and people immediately started LOSING IT.
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.”
How cool do you keep your house?
New report our shows these as the recommended temps for energy efficiency:
• 78° F when you’re home
• 85° F when you’re at work or away
• 82° F when you’re sleeping pic.twitter.com/iNOSaqX35c
