At what temperature should an ordinary living room be kept ?

The correct temperature for an inhabited room is about 6o° F. In the case of young children, a higher
temperature is desirable. The surface area of the skin, from which evaporation takes place, is, in children
greater in proportion than in the case of adults; they therefore lose heat more rapidly, and this heat must
be restored by the maintenance of a correspondingly higher temperature.
