The average temperature in our homes has increased tremendously in the last 50 years, mainly due to better insulation and better working heating systems. In the 60s, the average temperature in a room in winter was actually around 12 ° C. But according to a study published by the British Medical Journal, currently, thermometers in European homes are in the range of 18 ° to 20 °. What aspects should we pay attention to when setting the ideal temperature in our homes in winter? Let’s find out with Furnace Repair below.
According to the standards set by WHO (World Health Organization), a healthy ambient temperature – meaning the recommended level of heat to ensure a person’s physical well-being in a particular setting – is around 18 ° C, which can vary relatively with the humidity in the room. In most countries, the maximum temperature set by law for homes, offices, schools, and all other public buildings is 20 ° C (with temperature tolerances being in the range of 2 ° under any circumstances). Apart from the risk of being fined, overheating levels above this temperature can contribute to seasonal complaints related to differences in outdoor and indoor temperatures. To help regulate the temperature in every room of the house, Ariston has developed a “smart” thermostat – with an outdoor sensor – capable of controlling (even wirelessly) up to six rooms, thus optimizing home comfort. Apart from temperature, it is important to consider the relative humidity in the house. In general, a relative humidity of more than 80% creates problems for our body and we perceive the temperature to be too high or too low, depending on the season. Conversely, if the humidity drops below 20%, the air becomes too dry and can cause breathing problems, risk of inflammation, and difficulty producing saliva.
To ensure the ideal temperature in our homes and the balance of moisture entering from the outside, it is imperative to be able to rely on an efficient heating system, which offers optimal comfort in the home without spreading heat,
