I run hot year round - I just spend a lot of time on boards shorts indoors if my wife wants the heating on. Summer year round!
18-20 is ideal for me, much more and I start to suffer. But then, it's 8 degrees outside right now and I'm stood at a station platform in a short sleeve shirt typing this so maybe I'm weird 😁
Well in my shared house it's the guy who keeps turning on the heating. I should understand really... Having your room downstairs is considerably colder than upstairs. In my previous house it was and it was freezing. But let's just say that my landlady's idea of heating was much to be desired in the living room, which my room was off. Between now and April, I would cover the little panel that brought in fresh air cause that would blow right into my room.
I deal with the cold better than my wife but that is because basically I am from the north of England and live near the Pennines and she was from Swansea on the coast in South Wales. There is a difference in temperature. When it comes to being inb the house not really an argument we both like it around 19/20 degrees so make of that what you will.
Raynauds affects about 10 million people & women are more affected than men.I gradually lose the warmth in my toes, feet then legs and the only way to get it back is external heat or vigorous exercise. I can be wearing layers and layers of thermals and blankets & this still happens. I have an electric blanket to keep warm day and night.
As a natural redhead with pale skin I simply cannot tolerate the heat. I put it up when my kids are cold but otherwise I just put on a cardigan. My bloke couldn't care less though.
Post menopausal women turn the thermostats down and sleep with the window open and a fan on even in winter ! But pre menopausal women turn the thermostats up shut windows and put their pjs on so it must be hormonal !!
It really depends on where you come from. I am from HK, we don’t have heating at home, as in winter (although it’s less than one month that the temperature is that low), we can survive in our home with temperature less than 10 degrees and we used to have very thick blankets and clothes on while we are home.😅 here in England, I seldom turn on heating while home, it’s sometimes too hot... I think 17-18 is the best temperature that you don’t sweat when you’re having a very hot spicy noodles! Lol!
Radiators in my house are mainly used for communication. If I'm laying in bed with a hangover and need a full English to get me going, I just tap out my order on the radiator and half an hour later the Mrs brings me breakfast!
Lorraine Artley this explains a lot now in the office. Not that they could get a stable temperature anyway! (Even if everyone could agree on a number 😅🙈)
