No one wants to be too cold or too hot. Fortunately, finding the ideal temperature for your Bath, Pennsylvania, home is easier than you think. With a little information and the right equipment, your home can maintain a comfortable temperature for everyone all day.

The Right Temperature

Depending on the time of day or what you’re doing, the ideal temperature for your home will vary. During the day, you’ll want to set your thermostat between 68 and 70 degrees in the winter and 75 and 78 degrees in the summer. For most people, the ideal temperature to sleep in is between 65 and 72. If you want to stay productive during the day, set the thermostat between 70 and 73 degrees.

Outside Factors to Consider

No two people are alike, and finding the right temperature to suit your family will take some time and a few thermostat adjustments. In the meantime, remember that different factors can affect how the temperature feels to you and your family.

  • It’s common for people to prefer warmer indoor temperatures in winter and cooler in summer because of the extreme outside temperatures.
  • Putting on or taking off extra layers of clothes will affect how the temperature feels.
  • Additional humidity can make a room feel much warmer than what the thermostat indicates.
  • The amount of extra weight you carry can affect how cool or warm you feel.

How to Set Your Ideal Temperature Efficiently

Running back and forth between the thermostat all day, changing the temperature to suit the time of day or your productivity, isn’t the best use of anyone’s time. Upgrading to a programmable thermostat is a good start, but you have more options than that. With smart technology, like the Cor Wi-Fi Thermostat, you can do much more than program your thermostat. This system intelligently adapts beyond the typical manual programming function.
