I am trying to get the right degree F on which I should adjust the air.
Is 80 too hot? Is 70 too cold? I don't try to get any saving website
because they are not useful. I need to know what is the "ideal" degree
F for my house (apartment). Thanks. God bless you, Carole Abumoussa

A la Goldilocks: 80 might be a tad warm, 70 a bit cool, and 75 just about right.
Remember, an A/C takes water moisture out of the air it conditions. As a result, the room will feel cooler and the electricity required to maintain your selected temperature will go up with each degree the room temperature goes down.
the ideal temp is the one that makes you feel comfy... in summer i
like 68-70.. i know some that like it set at 80 in the summer.....
dont you know what temp feels good to you??
You set it where you are comfortable, not where I am comfortable. The
higher you set it the less expensive it will be to run. If family members
disagree, then that is another problem.
Just don't do want a friend of mine likes to do; don't turn it off and
open the windows every night (we live in an area where the air is damp at
night) and then close them the next day thinking that will save money. It
cost more because you need to remove the moisture.
70 is cold to me. 80, in my home, is uncomfortable and gets humidity so
high that the salt and sugar turn to rock and salt shakers corrode. 76,
77 is about ideal. Major housework going on, go to 74 :o) Comfort and
economy are my major concerns.

It also depends who all you live with.
I taught myself to sleep without a top sheet or blanket in the summer,
and now I'm as comfortable when it is 10 degrees hotter than before.
That is, 83 is as comfortable now as 73 was before. Sometimes I'm
naked. That adds another few degrees, and 85 or 86. If I had kids in
the house I would not sleep naked.
The same temp seems cooler with the windows open than with the windows
shut. There is a breeze, even if only a slight one.
I also taught myself to sleep without the sheets tucked in. This
means I don't have a problem sleeping on a rug on the floor, just
because the presence of untucked sheets bothers me. I learned this
from a Belgian woman.
