Set the thermostat to the right temperature – what the numbers mean

How warm will it be when the thermostat is set to three? You cannot set the temperature exactly on a classic graduated scale. However, it will give you a reliable indication - enough to create temperature zones in your own home and save energy.

If you heat less, you save energy. That's why many people settle for lower temperatures in their homes. However, to still feel comfortable in their own four walls, they heat different rooms to different temperatures. For example, the bedroom or passages such as hallways can be relatively cool, but the bathroom needs to be cosy warm. Frequently used areas such as the dining room or a children's room are in the medium temperature range.

How to create temperature zones in your home:

  • Close the doors. This ensures there is only a small exchange of air between the rooms and the heat stays where it belongs.  
  • Check regularly that the settings on the radiators correspond to the temperatures you want. Digital thermostats can be set precisely - directly or using your mobile phone.
  •  That helps you to heat to suit your needs.

Our infographic will tell you which temperature is right for individual rooms and how to set the thermostat. You can also download and print it out here.
