Too hot, too cold... Getting the temperature right in your home can be tricky, especially when you need to turn the thermostat up and down to suit different activities. Colder for cooking, but then warmer for snuggly evenings. It can be a minefield.

 Zzzz… drop off into a peaceful sleep at 17°C

 As anyone who’s tried to sleep during a heatwave will tell you, it’s near impossible to sleep when you’re too hot. Turns out, the perfect temperature is actually between 15°C and 19°C, so get that thermostat down before bed for a restful night’s sleep.

Tickle your tastebuds with a glass of red at 18°C

Calling all slurpers and swillers! You probably already know that red wine should be served at room temperature. In fact, experts advise that you should keep that vintage bottle at no more than 18°C.

Make every squat and lunge count at 21°C

 Working up a sweat? It’s a myth that being really hot will help enhance your exercise regime. Get the most out of your home workout by keeping your house at around 21°C.

Boost your memory by working at 22°

Get into your birthday suit at 26.5°C

Pick a balmy 26.5°C if you’re planning on going au naturel at home. That’s all we have to say on the matter.
