Stuffy nose if too warm in winter

Patient

Q: I live in Minnesota, and during the winter, whenever it gets too warm in our apartment, I have to turn the heat down because my nose gets so stuffy I cant breathe comfortably. This is rather annoying because I have to keep my apartment at 55 degrees and if it gets warmer than 65, i cant breathe and have to open all the windows to cool it down. This doesn't happen in the summer, only the winter. Is there anything I can do so that we don't have to freeze in our apartment just so I can breathe comfortably?
