The Ideal Temperature

When the cold weather arrives most people want to crank the heat in their home to make sure they stay warm, but the downside is a high heating bill to go with it. So how do you and your family keep cosy this winter while also being mindful of your budget? Is there an ideal temperature for your home?

The answer is yes, but it’s not quite as simple as you think. There’s no one ideal temperature for all times of day and if you think about it, it makes a lot of sense. Your own body temperature will change depending on what you’re doing so it’s reasonable that you’ll need to change your house temperature to make sure you stay comfortable, neither too hot or too cold. 

Here are some ideal temperatures for various activities:

Lounging at home, reading, watching tv, relaxing: 21℃
Doing housework: 20℃
Sleeping: 16℃
Empty House: 16℃

Just a few degrees can make a big difference in your comfort at home and can save up to 10% on your energy bill! 

Of course, not everyone is exactly the same in their preferred home temperature. If you have multiple people in your home it may take some trial and error to find what works for everyone. However, there are lots of ways to keep your thermostat on a lower setting while also staying comfortable. Check out our 15 Tips for Reducing Your Heating Bill blog for more info!

So you’ve figured out what temperatures work for your home but you don’t want to be rushing to the thermostat everytime you change activities or leave the house. That’s where a programmable thermostat comes in handy! Set it up to change the temperature according to your schedule and then just go about your day without having to worry about it. There are even smart thermostats that connect to an app on your phone so you can control your heat from anywhere.

Heating your home shouldn’t be a chore. West Nova Fuels and Superline Fuels makes sure all our customers can enjoy worry-free heating all winter long!
