What temperature do you have your thermostat set at during the winter? How about during the summer?

This is always a huge battle at our house!!  DH and I are both from the north, living in the south.  He can't tolerate the cold well at all and would prefer the house stay warmer and I am fine with it warmer during the day, but prefer it colder at night while sleeping.  In the summer, we keep it at either 76 or 77 and in the winter he would prefer we keep it at 74 and I would prefer we keep it at 68, so we compromise at 70.

In the summer I keep my thermostat around 72-73 during the day and 69 for night. In the winter I keep the thermostat at 65 or lower because we have a wood stove for ambience and that keeps the entire house toasty warm. Our electric heat only kicks on in the night if don't keep the stove going.
