Abstract
We examine if temperatures in winter in English homes meet the recommendation of being at least 18°C at all times. We analyse how many days meet this criterion and calculate the hours per day and night being at/above 18°C. These metrics are compared between households with occupants aged above 64 years or having a long-term disability (LTD) and those younger and without disability.Cross-sectional, observational.England.635 households.(1) Mean temperatures, (2) proportion of days of the measurement period meeting the criterion, (3) average hours at/above 18°C, (4) average hours at night at/above 18°C.=302, 95% CI 3 to 70).247 homes had at least nine hours of at least 18°C at night; no effect of age or disability.Many households are at risk of negative health outcomes because of temperatures below recommendations.
