Who's winning the thermostat wars in your home?

(CNN)Men and women to your corners of the ring -- it's time for the winter rounds of the thermostat wars. Who wins the fight in your home?

The answer to that depends on whether you are the man or the woman of the house, according to a new study published Wednesday in the journal PLOS.
"It seems like in some cases there's a dynamic where one person is responsible or takes ownership over the thermostat and other people don't get to have input into that," said lead author Nicole Sintov, assistant professor of behavior, decision-making and sustainability at Ohio State University.
