Default Thermostat setting

I have been told that I am to keep the thermostat set at 79 degrees in my upcoming 3 month rental. Is this reasonable? Personally, I think it is not.

No, it is not reasonable. I would call it unreasonable. Are you allowed to flush the toilets? If not, that would also be unreasonable.

We use 78 as the high setting, and find this comfortable with the fans on, since this is winter time, we use 70-72 as the low setting, with no fans.

Usually, it is left to the renter to set a comfortable temperature with the proviso that the tenant is responsible for any utility charge over a set amount. Most homeowners are pretty fair about the amount. One like yours probably wouldn’t be.

If it really matters that much to the landlord - run in another direction. It won't be the only issue you will have.

My guess, at this point, is it is prime season. I would offer fifty bucks a month (if reason failed and no options) for the extra juice. But I would be mighty irritated!
