Application of temperature and humidity sensor
When your house gets cold in the winter, it’s easy to add heat and raise the room temperature. It’s a comforting moment — but it might not be so when you get your energy bill. Ouch! Those high heating bills might have you wondering if your family can live comfortably in cooler temperatures. So, what’s the ideal temperature for your home in winter? Read on – we’ve done some research to help you find the perfect winter temperature for your home that balances comfort and affordability. JXCT‘s temperature and humidity sensor can help you very well.
Lower the room temperature while sleeping in winter
According to the National Sleep Foundation, the ideal sleep temperature for a comfortable night’s rest is 60 to 67 degrees Fahrenheit for most adults. Our bodies experience a slight drop in core body temperature at night as we prepare for sleep, so most of us are comfortable turning down the thermostat at night. It’s also important to note that the recommended sleep humidity level is between 30% and 50%.
Lowering indoor temperature at night can save on electricity bills and help with thermoregulation. It’s a simple and effective way to reduce your home’s energy consumption during the winter months. When you slip on your warm pajamas, blanket or comforter, you can give your heating system a break while improving your sleep quality.
However, individuals may have different needs, depending on age and gender. Infants and toddlers sleep more comfortably in a room with an ambient temperature of 68 to 72 degrees Fahrenheit. Their bodies are small and still growing, so they are sensitive to changes in temperature.
Lower the temperature when you are outside
Another easy way to save money on your electric bill is to lower your thermostat when you’re away from home, whether that’s working during the day or extending time when you’re out and about in the winter.
When you’re not home, set your thermostat between 60 and 65 degrees Fahrenheit in the winter. This temperature will save as much energy as possible while protecting the home. Remember to consider the safety of your pets, houseplants, and your home and its contents. Many modern thermostats are programmable, allowing you to automatically lower the temperature during the day while the family goes to work and school, then automatically increase the heat when everyone is home.
If you have pets, make sure they are in the comfort of your home. Dogs and cats require a minimum temperature of 64 degrees.
The ideal temperature for houseplants is usually between 60 and 75 degrees Fahrenheit. Any temperature outside of this range can kill them.
Frozen pipes are an added problem and the most common problem for homeowners in the winter. Never set the thermostat below 55 degrees Fahrenheit if the outside temperature will drop below freezing while you are outside. Fifty-five degrees is the absolute minimum temperature to keep pipes from freezing.
