An engineer has named the ideal temperature for heating a house

Low temperatures are expected in Ukraine, which means high heating bills. However, you can save money by not setting the temperature on the boiler and radiators too high.

Matthew Jenkins, a heating expert, advises turning on the central heating when the average temperature outside drops below 15 degrees Celsius. This is the indicator you should follow, according to Express.co.uk.

Most people believe that the optimal temperature for comfort in the fall and winter is between 18 and 21 degrees Celsius. However, this is not the case.

Energy efficiency expert Stephen Hankinson of Electric Radiators Direct urges you to consider lowering the standard temperature by a degree or two. According to him, reducing the temperature from 21 degrees to 18 degrees can cut your annual heating bill by 15 percent.

For those seeking cost-effective ways to stay warm when the temperature drops, hot water bottles are a great option. Boiling water will be more economical than raising the temperature on the boiler or radiators.
