This blog post will summarize the healthiest temperature in general and the best possible one for each room in your house and why. These simple yet handy tips can be advantageous to you and your loved ones to stay comfortable and healthy all year round!

Let Comfort Be Your Guide

For most people, the healthiest room temperature will be where they feel most comfortable. Although, this temperature can quickly change based on your health, the current season, and which rooms you spend the most time in. Usually, most people identify a healthy temperature range between 68 and 76 degrees Fahrenheit. Nevertheless, the right room temperature may be higher or lower for specific people or even for innumerable rooms.

For instance, the World Health Organization (WHO) has expressed that a healthy, fully-dressed adult should be comfortable in a room at about 64 degrees Fahrenheit. Despite that, they also say that the disabled, the elderly, or the very young are healthiest in room temperatures no colder than 68 degrees Fahrenheit. At the same time, if you or someone living in your home is more vulnerable to allergies or respiratory problems, you should consistently keep your room temperature above 61 degrees Fahrenheit.

Optimal Temperature by Room

You may adjust the temperature for health and comfort based on which part of the house you spend the most time in. For best results, aim for the following temperatures in these specific rooms:

Living Room: The room should be between 68 and 72 degrees Fahrenheit for optimal health. This is related to the fact that your body can quickly start to feel cold and uncomfortable at lower temperatures. On the flip side, you can get quite overheated at higher temperatures and at risk of dehydration.

Bedroom: The bedroom is where you’ll spend the most time throughout the night, so it’s essential to keep this room comfortable and healthy for sleeping. Set the temperature between 62-66 degrees Fahrenheit to execute this. This range will be helpful to your body in regulating its temperature as you sleep and prevent any uncomfortable sweating or shivering.

Kitchen: The kitchen, though, has to be kept a bit cooler than other rooms in the house cause of increased activity levels like, for instance, cooking or baking. The more appropriate temperature range for the kitchen is between 60-64 degrees Fahrenheit. Not only will this keep you comfortable when you’re in the room, but on top of that, it can help extend the shelf life of many food items!

Bathroom: To prevent mold and mildew growth, set the bathroom temperature lower than other rooms in your rental home. A good range is in the low 70s. This range can help keep fungi from developing and avoid any musty odors.

At length, it is up to you to choose what temperature is most comfortable and healthy for you in your rental home. Look into your body’s signs and tailor the room temperature accordingly. You can always stay comfortable at home by carefully following the tips in this post.
