Home / Funny / Viral / Crazy Thermostat Temperatures Recommended By The U.S. Government Shocks Readers


Due to increasing summer temperatures, a heat advisory is currently in effect for a large portion of the continental United States. The U.S. Government responded to this by releasing recommendations for summer thermostat settings, which call for 78°F at home, 85°F away, and 82°F while you're sleeping. But there has been a lot of debate about these recommendations online.

Numerous individuals believe that the suggested settings are far too high. Everyone has responded by bemoaning the suggested temperatures and what it would be like to live in such (literally) hot conditions on the internet. On X (formerly Twitter), someone commented, "There's 0% chance the people who came up with these recommendations actually use them in their homes."

The majority of people concur that the high numbers would make homes excessively hot, especially for sleeping. "Who among us can sleep in 82 degrees?" a user has asked. I must comprehend this. Even harsher criticism of the recommended temperatures came from someone who said, "If I have to sleep at 82 degrees, the entire town is going without power."
