[Woodworkers] Climate Controlled Shops

For those of you with climate controlled shops, I'm curious on what you
leave the temperature at when you are out of the shop? I leave mine at 80
degrees in the summer and 50 degrees in the winter. I figure those temps
won't ruin any finish or glue. If I'm in the middle of a glue-up or
finishing, I'll leave the temperature around 70 until complete.


For those of you with HVAC knowledge ..  I always bring the temperature up
or down in 3 degree increments. In other words, I'll go out in the morning
and bring it from 80 to 77, then when at 77 I'll take it to 74, etc. Same
with bringing the temperature up. Not sure why I do this. I guess I'm basing
it on when I had a heat pump, you would not want a drastic change or the
emergency strips (electric strips) would come on. I do not have a heat pump
(gas furnace and regular AC) so is this faulty logic? Should I just go
straight to 70 in either direction? Any advantage to a slow clime or
