What should be the ideal air-conditioner temperature during day and night hours in summer?
Should air-conditioners be set to a certain range only during the day and have a separate range during the night during the summer season? Suggest what would be the best temperatures to maintain an air-conditioner during the summer season.
The average day temperature in most of Tamil Nadu, except the hill stations, is around 36 deg C. It is really very hot. And without an AC it is not very convenient. At least for two hours. Now comes the classic confusion. A forwarded message from a friend warns that the AC temp should be 26 during the day and mostly around 21 during the night.
I would tend to push it to 19 during the day and 18 during the night. Members, particularly, doctors who know the scientific truth, please do advise. Is it essential that the AC temperature should be somewhat near the actual atmospheric temperature? If the AC is set at 36 deg C, I am sure that it will have zero effect. And at night, what should we do?
The messages warn us of heart attacks or even brain hemorrhage. I guess these guys see the Tamil TV serials or Telugu TV serials so often and get fancy ideas. Whatever be the truth, let us be informed. What should we do and what are the ideal temperatures?
