Here are the recommended room temperatures

Mine is an air brick or something so I can’t remove it but my upstairs neighbour bought a sliding vent for over hers (as it’s also how mice and things are getting in). She said she siliconed it in place. Need to ask my landlady if she’ll let me. Not like ventialtion is a problem when none of my windows seal :upside_down_face:

The house thermostat is currently reading 14. I mainly just wear jumpers and put the heating on first thing in the morning and the evening, when it’s set to 17.5 or 18. Even with that we spent £12 in energy yesterday. :astonished:

I’ve just taken delivery of an oil filled electric radiator and set it up under my work desk. That’s set at 18. Feels quite nice. Hopefully it won’t be too expensive.

Thermostat is 12.5. Going to treat myself to an hour of radiator

16° in a bedroom? What bullshit is this? I’d have to put my coat on

Humidity makes a big difference.

In what direction? It’s only 43% humidity in here

Well I think the higher the humidity the more the temperature transfer to you can occur. So if it’s very humid you feel the temperature much more than if it’s dry. (I am just guessing, TBH, based on air conditioners and the effect of the dehumidifier, I haven’t researched this.)

Yeah basically

Heat escapes from your body easier in low humidity so that’ll be why 18 in here feels colder than expected

Not sure what it is in living room but thermometer in bedroom says its about 19 degrees, think its a bit cooler down here. Keep bedroom between 19 and 20 at night for mini, dont think i could handle it much cooler now im used to it tbh.

No, I think the higher the humidity the colder you’ll feel if it’s very cold. This was from some random website:

If the humidity levels are extremely high, the moisture can saturate your clothing. This leaves chilled water molecules against your skin and makes a cold environment feel even chillier. High humidity and cold weather will leave you feeling colder than if humidity levels were low.

Higher humidity air is harder to heat so lowering humidty (yours is perfect btw) means using less energy to heat the room. But it’s neglible I think.

My boiler’s isolation valve has been knackered for the last 3 years so the central heating doesn’t come on automatically and ignores the thermostat when it is on. I therefore have to manually turn the boiler on and off, and use pliers to set it to hot water or central heating as required

Living room is currently 9 or 10 degrees when I get home from work. I put the central heating on & go for a quick half-hour nap on the sofa with the cat whilst the room heats up. It’s now 14 after a couple of hours, and I’ll put the heating off when it hits 15. Two blankets on the sofa & happy to wear hats and fingerless gloves indoors so I’m feeling quite toasty at the moment. No idea what I’m spending on heating, as my boiler runs on oil and I haven’t topped up the tank since the summer. It’s running low now so I’d better order some tomorrow. Big lump sum payments are never good, I should perhaps enquire about paying for monthly top-ups

Bedroom-wise, I’m perfectly happy with single-digit temperatures


Yeah I’m freezing in the bedroom and shivering under the duvet and apparently it’s 18degrees

I used to work with someone from southern India who came into the office before everyone else and set the thermostat to 28C. Anything less and they wore a coat. Guess it’s what you’re used to

That was a Fun game.Temperature under my armpit

Dry :sunglasses:


So babies and fapps are the ones who take their temperature under the arm? At least it seems you’re not sick!

What temperature is your armpit under the duvet
