With a vicious Yakima heat wave expected to send temperatures past 100 degrees for the next week or so, anyone lucky enough to have air conditioning is probably checking their settings pretty closely.

You want to be comfortable, but you don't want to get another heart-stopping bill from the power company.

So what's the best setting?
A recent study by a Texas heating and cooling company found that most people thought 72 degrees was the ideal room temperature, and that most people set their air conditioning at between 70 and 75 degrees.

What about you? Do you leave it in one spot or turn it up and down during the day?

Take the poll and let us know. (I put it on 69 and leave it.)
