Default 180 t-stat

Its starting to get cool at night around 40-45 degrees and I want heat. Is it because I have a 180 t-stat that its not warming up? I get done work at 230 am so its every day that i have to drive in a cold car. Sould I go back to a 195? Or would that even make a diference
I'll never be happy, I complain the engine gets to hot in the summer and not warm fast enough in the cooler monthes

I'll trade you your problem for mine. I had a 160 in it, and it still hung around 200-220. 180 now, and it stays right around 220-240.
