When the winters are in full swing, there’s hardly a minute we want to spend sans the heater. We want to wake up in a toasty room, and we want to come back from work to a house that is the best kind of warm.
To achieve this comfort, most of us do not turn off our heating system at all. Even when there is no one at home, and even when we are so deep in our comforter that we are practically sweating at night, the heater keeps running.
Not only does this waste energy, but it also causes discomfort. To avoid both, here’s how you can set your thermostat in the cooler days:

During the initial days of the winter season, set the temperature as high as you want. Few weeks into winter and your body will adapt to the cold winds.
This is the best time to reduce the temperature by one degree, or you’ll find yourself sweltering. You can reduce another degree the next week and another the next.
With this slow and gradual change, you won’t feel anything.
