I've never understood the reason for doing this. Why would you want your house
at 18C (64F) in the summer, when you're probably in short sleeves? And then you
roast at 30C (86F) in the winter, when you're probably wearing a sweater? Don't
you suffer thermal shock when you walk outside?

As someone's already mentioned, this also requires a huge amount of energy.
Simply reversing your temperatures to keep the house cooler in the winter and
warmer in the summer would really help the global environment, not to mention
your utility bills.
