The importance of heating and cooling can’t be overemphasized. When your body is not at the optimum temperature, it’s not going to work as efficiently as possible. Plus, you’ll feel uncomfortable and fidgety which makes you less productive mentally as well as physically. It doesn’t matter if the problem is one of heating or cooling; both will affect your comfort as well as your physical and mental wellbeing.
Different Optimum Temperatures for Different Activities
Additionally, you need to be able to adjust the temperature a little bit to make it hotter or cooler, depending on what you’re doing. For example, if you’re just sitting at a desk and working on a computer, you might want the temperature to be a little warmer. But if you’re working out or cooking, you might want the temperature to be a little cooler.
Performing at Your Best at Optimum Temperatures
Your body tells you what the optimum temperature is during any particular activity. But you can also think of this in advance and adjust the temperature before you start that activity. This will ensure that you’re comfortable while performing that activity but it will also ensure that you perform that activity to the best of your ability. After all, if you’re sitting around shivering or sweating, you’re not going to be able to concentrate on computer work, cooking or exercising. So all these elements of your life will suffer.
Optimum Temperature Is Different for Different People
It’s a fact that some people prefer cooler temperatures while others prefer the temperature to be a little warmer. This might have to do with growing up in cooler/warmer climes. Or it might also have to do with their bodily composition (people with more muscle mass tend to feel warmer than people who have less muscle mass). Still, everyone needs to be able to adjust the heating and cooling system in their home so that they are comfortable, productive and mentally calm and stable.
