Extensive use of central heating could trigger obesity, study reveals

Setting one’s central heating system in order to provide a higher level of temperature might indeed provide a higher level of thermal comfort, but it also means that bodies no longer need to burn extra calories to keep warm, thus triggering some significant weight gains, research carried out by a group of scientists at the Maastricht University Medical Centre has revealed.

The report said people spent 90% of their time indoors and yet “we cool and heat our dwellings for maximal comfort while minimising our body energy expenditure necessary to control body temperatures”. In fact, the research paper suggests that 19C (66F) is sufficient to provide the body’s right balance.

If you’d like to make sure that your central heating system runs in an optimized manner and you get specifically the temperature you want in every room within your house, then HeatSave is your best possible solution for this job.
