Temperature in the House

Ask a Question

What temperature do you keep your house at? Mine's usually on 18 °c. If I feel cold I'll put it on 20°c for couple hours. I asked my friend who's house always feels like tropics and she has it on 27°c all the time!!!😯

We have it about 20 or 21, but I still need to wear layers to deal with that. 27 sounds ideal

I can manage at 16Β°c by putting on extra clothing (we only had central heating since 10 years ago, so I am used to cooler temperatures). But I feel the most comfortable with it being between 18Β°c and 22Β°c. Some houses I have been in felt as if I was inside an oven, and that was at 23 or 24Β°c. I dread to think how 27Β°c would feel. πŸ”₯

RegularComper90 I remember many years ago my family lived in the house which only had wood burner to heat whole house with. And however much you would fill it up by the morning it was all cold ashes. Especially in winter it was horrible.with frost on the windows and freezing cold bedroom I used to get dressed under covers...still not used to cold thoughπŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜―πŸŒ¨β„β„β„β„β˜ƒοΈ

BlueOrchid Some people apparently love being cold. You toughen yourself up to it, but I don't understand how you could actually love it. 🌑️ 😰 x

BlueOrchid Snow is beautiful to look at, but that's about it. 😁 x

Though I loved playing in it when I was a kid also.

Mine is generally at 20Β°C. If it was down to my wife and kids it would be tropical most of the time. If it was down to me the heating would be on a lot less. I'd rather be too cold than too hot.

27Β°C!? That's crazy talk!

We've just had a new heating system installed and we're getting used to it. The old boiler was sooooooo rubbish. The radiators never heated up properly and the thermostat was shot.

We're keeping ours at 19/20Β°C at the moment.

It tends to be naturally around 16-17 but if we're cold it goes to anything up to 21

Mine is always at around 22 but I go up to 23/23.5 to make sure it's well kept.

Thermostat is set for 15 but it gets a boost up to 18 for 1 - 2 hours morning and night, depending if we think it's cold. We have the advantage of being ground-floor middle flat and the other five (sides and above) all like to be really warm. I suppose we are bubble wrapped πŸ™‚

Whatever the room temperature is at any given time. I rarely feel the need to put the heating on where I live.

According to the room thermometer we have for our newborn, our house is usually kept at 20 degrees - 21 starts feeling too warm

Ours doesn't go below 20. But I always joke that we have some secret, secondary heating in the house that we don't know about, because no matter how cold it is outside, at about 5pm every evening it gets unbearably hot in the house and we have to turn the heating off and even open doors and windows!!! I used to think it coincided with when I was doing dinner but it happens whether I've got the oven on or not. Spooky eh?!

We have a similar problem but I think it's because it's a modern terrace house and I think we benefit from our neighbours heating 😊
