Federal Program Suggests Your Home Temperature Shouldn’t Go Below 78 degrees


A program culminated by the federal government suggests o citizens that they should be keeping their home temperature inside above 78 degrees. This little piece of information seems enough to create an online craze.

The government created software Energy Star looks for practical ways of conserving the worlds energy effectively. It suggests to inhabitants of the world to set the temperature at 78 degrees upon waking up to 85 degrees during the day and 82 degrees when you decide to go to bed again.

“Set your thermostat as high as comfortably possible in the summer,” says the energy department. “The smaller the difference between the indoor and outdoor temperatures, the lower your overall cooling bill will be.”

There have been a record of studies to indicate weather this temperature regulation is feasible and recommended. Some tests show that there is a higher productive rate with individuals who keep their thermostat setting high, while there is a strong case that indicates high temperatures during the sleeping hours can interfere with a good nights rest greatly.

It has been shown that a room at about 65 degrees does indedd make for better sleep. The argument behind not having to regulate the thermostat so high is that your body is conducted on a body heat cycle, meaning your temperature rises and falls throughout the day, if you were to keep the temperature high when your body temperature is supposed to be falling to get you to bed it can result in a sleepless and restless night.

Moreover this is what hey have o say about working conditions, “Office temperature and humidity conditions are generally a matter of human comfort rather than hazards that could cause death or serious physical harm,” its standard reads.
