    Shoulder season has officially arrived in Nor Cal. In our living room with stove it is 83 and my wife are shocked we are not hot and trying to figure out why. The hardest room to heat in the 3000 sq ft house up stairs and around the corner it is 71.

    What's the outside temperature. The colder outside the less hotter it feels inside at least that's the way it works for me

    Yup, that RH can be a factor. 76::F inside here right now, but 24% RH and I'm sporting a hoodie and insulated Carhartts.
    (OK, I'm wuss, but I'm a comfy wuss :()

    'what's the relative humidity in the house?'

    Yup, that was my 1st thought as well. We mostly always have a pot of water on the stove when burning.

    Our indoor humidity only varies by about 15% year round but, I am comfortable at 80 degrees inside during the long heating season and when it is 90 outside and 80 inside I am hot. Our bodies are weird like that. I wonder if the windows suck radiant heat from our bodies or what. Maybe it is in our head that all we have to do is go outside and be cool. Lastly, we adapt to higher temps and in time can tolerate much warmer temps. Like putting an eskimo in Arizona, he would be hot.
