What is the Ideal Room Temperature? Different Strokes for Different Folks

July 25, 2022
We can have our homes at whatever temperature we like, if only we can agree what temperature that is.
Most authorities suggest a minimum of 18ºC (64.4 F) as the ideal home temperature for healthy and appropriately-dressed individuals. But there is something inherently wrong in conceiving room temperature by averages. After all, if you put one foot in cold water and the other in hot water, on an average you will be comfortable.
The ideal temperature actually depends on many factors such as your health needs, age and sex, the seasons, where you are located in the house. Then again, there is global warming. This summer is a sizzler. The winter may be very cold. Global climate is not under our control. Much depends on controlling the climate of our own homes for our health, good family relationship, and joy in life. For that you need a system attuned to your needs, room by room, season by season.
The average body temperature for a human is 37ºC (98.6 F)). Your body work hard to maintain this temperature by burning glucose to warm up or ventilate and sweat to cool down. And that goes through changes like life itself. Much depends on being attuned to your changing needs, and that of your family and guests.
The best temperature for the bedroom

This is a hard one given all the variables. Many studies of sleep disorders found that a temperature of 61 degrees Fahrenheit is ideal. Coldness, warmth and other feelings of the skin are transmitted to the brain and create a general comfortable or uncomfortable experience. If you sleep hot, you’re likely to remain in the lighter stages of sleep rather than reach a deeper, more restorative and restful stage called slow-wave sleep. Your body goes through changes as you sleep. Core and brain temperatures go down, your heart rate up. A hot bedroom interferes with this process of the body’s heat-regulation cycles—meaning sleep disorder could be a disorder of body temperature. But there is an issue in your bedroom. Boys and girls are different in many ways. This is one of them.
Keeping your cool after the lights go out

Among the wars of our times is the battle of the thermostat in bedrooms shared by men and women. Men turn it down, and women turn it up again. There are actual, scientific reasons why women often find themselves feeling much colder than the men in the same room. Women have higher core body temperatures, and slower metabolic rates. They gather heat around their core organs, leaving less heat circulates throughout the rest of their body. Since women’s core temperatures are higher in the first place, cool temperatures will feel even cooler to females than to males. There you have it. Vive la difference. Negotiate.
The best temperature for a children’s bedroom

Children’s are smaller and still developing, and therefore more sensitive to changes in temperature. They may benefit from a bedroom that’s one or two degrees warmer, up to 20.5 degrees Fahrenheit. However, babies have special need for comfortable warmth for the first 11 weeks of their lives. Too much heat may increase the risk of sudden death syndrome (SIDS). After the first year, children’s needs are not much different from those of adults. Girls will be more sensitive to cold. A cooler room is inductive to study for your boy and girls equally.
The best temperature for the elderly

The elderly have special bedroom needs. Their decrease in fat and thinning skin make it difficult for them to conserve heat. That decrease in metabolic rate means that seniors' bodies might be unable to generate enough heat to maintain a "normal" temperature. Hypothermia is a very real threat for seniors. A body temperature of 95°F or lower can cause in the elderly many other health problems, such as liver damage, heart attack, kidney problem and much else. Research has shown that it only takes 45 minutes for a cold room to lower the strength in most major muscle groups. . With that in mind, the study suggested a minimum temperature of 18ºC (64.4F)
Heed Your Body’s Thermostat

Your thyroid is your body’s thermostat: The lower the temperature, the lower your energy, while the reverse is true if your body temperature increases with a gain in your energy-level. Thyroid problems need to be treated by specialists, but even a normally functioning thyroid needs to monitor and regulate your body’s need for heat and warmth. Your comfort level with temperature may suddenly alter. Just as your body reacts to your brain’s commands, the thermostat serves as the control center for your home’s heating and cooling, just as our heat and air conditioning monitoring system kicks in when your home reaches the right temperature ,according to the changing needs of your metabolism.
