The heating season is here

December 10th, 2021

Like every year, the cold season is coming and we can wonder how to maintain an ideal temperature in our home. Because let’s face it, there’s nothing more unpleasant in the winter than being cold in your own home. Maintaining an optimal temperature inside during the coldest months is a matter of comfort, but also of health, so here are some tips to make your home comfortable all winter long.


It can be tempting in the winter to turn the heat up high to try to ward off the chill, but this is far from ideal for your health and comfort. In fact, an overheated room can lead to symptoms such as unpleasant headaches, dry skin and poor circulation. How to know what is the ideal temperature? It is a matter of taking into account different criteria including your health, of course, but also your ecological footprint and your budget.

Ideal overall temperature

The optimal temperature may not be the same for every room in your home. However, a temperature of 19 degrees is usually recommended as a good compromise between comfort and energy savings. This temperature may seem cold to some of us, but keep in mind that it is better to add layers of clothing than to overheat the house.

Heating by room and time of day

When it gets dark, you can turn down the heat. Since you’re under the comforter, you won’t feel the slight drop in heat, but your wallet will thank you. In the bathroom, however, no one wants to feel the cold when they get out of the shower or bath. It is therefore justified to raise the temperature in order to be more comfortable. As for the corridors or lobbies, since they are places where we only pass through, it is not necessary to heat them as much as the rooms where we stay for longer periods.

When no one is home

It is better not to lower the heating below 16 degrees for short absences and 14 degrees for longer periods such as vacations. The main point is not to pass the critical point where the pipes could freeze and cause major water damage. This is certainly not a desirable situation, let alone when it happens when we are not home.

If you feel that the heating inside your home is not efficient enough or does not allow you to adjust it reliably, do not hesitate to contact professionals. They will be able to guide you in the best practices and suggest improvements to make your system more efficient and effective. The idea is to allow you to spend the winter in comfort while maximizing your heating savings.
