Control of the thermostat is often a cause for disagreement in many homes. A recent survey has calculated that the difference in temperatures preferred by women compared to men costs up to £425 a year more in heating bills!
According to the study, the average British male does not like the thermostat to go above 22oC (71.6F) and prefers it at 19oC (66.2F).
In comparison, the average British woman prefers the thermostat to be set at 24oC (75.2F).
