I grew up in chilly, frigid England. The house I grew up in allegedly had central heating but my breath froze when I was IN the house. In fact, my grandma would stuff my school uniform in to my bed each morning, so that I wouldn’t have to dress in the chill of my bedroom.
My feet were warm only when I placed them on the radiator attached to the wall of my bedroom. I shivered even under layers of sweaters and thick socks. At times it was warmer inside than out. Was I ever warm during my childhood?
My American husband’s childhood was far less severe than mine. You see he grew up in a toasty warm home heated by a wood fire. When I met him he would wear a short-sleeved t-shirt IN winter as his home was so hot! He wore sweaters when leaving the house, but not while inside the house.
When it comes to heating and staying warm, my husband and I are NOT cut from the same cloth. He is all about the heat, while I would rather add on layers to stay warm. We argue about the setting off the thermostat…all the time. He hates when I adjust the thermostat. Don’t even get me started on what he wants to set the AC on!
According to Honeywell, my husband and I are not alone in our arguments on heating. A new infographic from Honeywell addresses how men and women deal with the heat. The infographic entitled: Gender Wars: Some Like It Hot, Others Not So Much states that the following interesting facts:
- 64% of men think women keep the house warmer
- 26% of men and women argue with their partner over the temperature in their home
- 54% of men and women are willing to turn down their thermostat 1 to 5 degrees when using a portable heater
Did you know that Honeywell’s EnergySmart 360 Surround Heater is designed with both 360 degree surround heat AND 180 degree directional technology? Consumers who use the Honeywell EnergySmart heater will see that the directional technology will heat a room no matter where you sit. Sounds very cozy to me!
I’m no fan of being cold, that is for sure. Like those surveyed by Honeywell, the top 3 responses when a partner turns down the thermostat are that:
- 76% will grab a blanket
- 64% will put on a sweater
- 59% will layer clothing
And did you know that over 50% of people are willing to turn down the thermostat 1 to 5 degrees when using a portable heater? I have a space heater in my very cold basement, but had not thought of putting on the ground floor and upstairs. According to Honeywell’s survey, women and men equally purchase space heaters for their home.
