I set my AC to kick on when it is ~85 - 89 degrees in the house. I can tolerate it. Actually, I find that 85 is very cool for me. But when I visit other peoples’ homes, the AC is often set in the 70s. They cannot believe that I can tolerate 85-89.
Why can I tolerate 85-89 while most others cannot? Granted, I’m shirtless most of the time, and I do have a cheap floor fan that follows me around. Is it some sort of genetic difference between me and pretty much the rest of the population, which insists on setting the thermostat to 72 or whereabouts? Or what?
