Concerned about low temperatures

Concerned about low temperatures

The temperature of a home should be kept between 18 to 21 degrees C in the winter. Lower temperatures, below 10 - 18 degrees C can result in hypothermia.

Temperature extremes sensors work by detecting extremely low and high temperatures. If low temperature triggers the alarm then the help centre may contact you and / or your friends and relatives to prompt you to check your heating.
