Room Temperature

According to our building physics consultant 23 degrees Celsius is nowadays considered a pleasant temperature for the living room. Rather warm, we thought, but apparently it is perfectly normal.

That is quite confusing if you realize that most red wines “can be best consumed at Room Temperature of 14 – 18°C”. How can we match these figures?

Not long ago 18 degrees was the usual temperature for living rooms. Things were still in balance.

But now there is a tendency that is even widening the gap: it has become fashionable to drink red wines chilled…  Is this a side effect of living rooms that are too warm? Or will it affect the way we heat our homes?
