roccoe, actually your parents would eventually become ill by having the house like a Turkish bath which also means there are no windows opened to get any fresh air into the house. I don't like the heat above 70, either.

Very high heat in a home can damage the house itself, and everything inside, including your parents, plus there will be mold and mildew.

And I can just imagine the smell, which your parents probably have become nose-blind to..... I know my Dad has, he just revisited his house today after moving out 2 months ago and he still doesn't notice the stinky smell. He thinks opening the windows for a couple of days would help.... nada, the smell is in the carpets and in the walls :P

No, your parents won't die if it's not 90* in the house but the elderly do get cold in the warmest of temperatures.

I'm like you, I need it cool in the house. When my dad lived with us I'd go as high as 74* and my dad would have his winter coat on and be huddled up under blankets. But at night it had to be cool or I wouldn't sleep so I did what the captain suggested and got a fan for my room.

My dad and I compromised (well, he compromised more than I did) because we got the house together and the thermostat was neutral territory. Whose house is it? Yours or your parents?
