51 Heating and cooling Easy Actions Do you heat or cool just the rooms you are using?  No  Heat or cool the areas being used rather than paying to heat/cool empty rooms  Close doors to stop warm/cool air from escaping to rooms that aren’t being used  Block draughts between heated or cooled rooms and rooms that aren’t being used In winter, is the heating set too high, i.e. too warm?  Yes  Set heating at 19° to 21°C (use a thermometer if you don’t have a thermostat). In summer, is the cooling set too low, i.e. too cool?  Yes  Set cooling at 24° to 27°C (use a thermometer if you don’t have a thermostat). Using the home checklist
