Setting & Maintaining Your Home’s Temperature
Posted on May 31, 2017
Sometimes getting comfortable can be difficult; people that have trouble sleeping (unless due to a specific health reason) are usually unable to find a position that is comfortable for them. Regularly getting a good night’s sleep can affect how you go about your whole day.
Similarly, the temperature which a home is regularly set to can affect how one feels and their overall comfort level within said home.
‘Many people find that setting the thermostat to 68 degrees (20 degrees Celsius) in the winter provides a comfortable home environment and keeps heating costs under control. At the night, or during the day when everyone is away, the temperature can be set to 6-10 degrees cooler to provide more savings. During the summertime, the same principles apply, just in reverse. Keep your air conditioners or central air unit set at 75 degrees (23.9 degrees Celsius) or above for cost-efficient cooling. Your family’s habits may allow you to keep the temperature higher. Consult your family and see what everyone is comfortable with.’ (ahs.com)
