Thermostat Battle Melts Relationships

"Thermostat etiquette" is a thing.

As Floridians crank the a/c to battle summer heat and humidity, the setting of the thermostat can cause a few degrees of frustration.

A new survey shows that one in four adults ended a friendship with a roommate over arguments about the thermostat.

Half the respondents won't even date someone who doesn't share the same a/c etiquette.

A survey sponsored by air conditioning giant Trane Residential found the ideal thermostat temperature is 69 degrees.

The survey reveals another mistake about 35% of people make: turning the air conditioner all the way down when first switching it on. People mistakenly think this makes the AC work more forcefully and cool the place down more quickly
