The Secret To A Happy Marriage Is . . . Keeping The Thermostat At THIS Temperature?

  • 55 per cent of us admit to arguing over the temperature at home
  • 35 per cent of Britons say that never agree with their partner
  • Women nine times more likely to suffer from cold hands and feet than men
Traditionally, as the temperatures drop the heating bill rises - as do relationship tensions.

Now finally the age-old argument between men and women over having the heating on is set to be solved.

Research has revealed the perfect temperature to keep everyone happy is 22 degrees Celsius.

It may seem a little excessive to men who prefer a cooler house temperature, but they would be wise to consider women are up to nine times more likely to suffer from cold hands and feet than them.

In fact in recent years studies have found that the female sex actually feels changes in temperature and the seasonal chill more than their male counterparts, but stubborn men may be none the wiser.

Now the true extent of our tug of war is revealed.

New research shows more than half of us (55 per cent) admit to arguing over the temperature at home, with the level of the thermostat believed to be one of the biggest sources of domestic tiffs.

Calculated from a mean average of the ideal temperature from a sample of both men and women, the findings show that 22 degrees is indeed the optimum temperature to keep both sexes happy.

When it comes to staying snug at home, it seems there is little room for compromise, with 35 per cent of Britons stating that they never agree with their spouse or partner when it comes to having the heating on.

A spokesperson for smart heating company climote said: 'We hear time and again that spouses argue about the temperature, more often than not that women want it warm and men want it colder.

'Technology like climote enables users to have real flexibility over the temperature of the house, but if all else fails then an even 22 degrees ought to do the trick!'

As the heating seems to be a bone of contention for most, climote has set out to find the perfect solution as the winter approaches with smart heating technology.

This enables users to control their heating temperature via an app, online dashboard or SMS making turning the heating up that bit easier.
