I have no idea what the average American home's summer temperature is, but we keep ours at 78 or 79 degrees Fahrenheit in the summertime unless we are away, in which case we'll bump it up to 80 degrees. We have house cats and would prefer not coming home to a house that takes 3 hours to cool back down to 78 or 79, otherwise we'd set it even higher if we're away to save energy and money.

We like it cool, so we tend to keep the A/C about 65Â° to 68Â° and cooler than that in the winter. I don't like that dry heat from the furnace so it doesn't come on unless I'm cold. Then again, I live in the south so we don't usually need it too often.

I'd say about 90Â°F while I'm away during the day.... the I run the AC full blast during the night and keep it at 80Â°F my electric bills are RARELY above $75.00 during the summer while I notice my bother gripes about a $250 electric bill during the summer.... Same thing with GAS during the winter I just run the heat to keep it warm so the pipes do not burst....OIL Companies are rich enough W/O me giving away my money to them.... When I can afford a solar panel and WIND generator ... I'm going OFF THE GRID!!!
