For me personally I just prefer my house slightly on the cooler side which won't be bad for a T but would probably curb it's appetite and growth . It's also about cost as well Scotland can sometimes be fairly cool all year round and people don't want their heating on 24/7 meaning the heating is usually off during the night and also during the day when everyone is out at work. I also know a few people that have log burning stoves(which is not uncommon) in their living room so it keeps one room nice and warm but the rest of the house is still on the cool side.I can't get this either...sometimes I think the US is the only place that has furnaces and insulation...glad das Germans are up to date...I'm baffled that cold climates of Scotland and England have homes that are consistently under insulated (or so they claim all the time)...I mean, who's the hack building homes there? Its cold consistently, build your domiciles to meet the cold requirements you absolutely positively know for a fact you will have each and every year.
I live in a super cold climate, like CEC, and if I were to build an un-insulated house with an inadequate furnace, it simply wouldn't pass inspection...in other words, it would not be considered fit for human habitation and you wouldn't be allowed to move in until it was rectified.
Often I feel like everyone over there lives in tents and caves the way they talk about the cold.
Its called a furnace...the ultimate backup plan every home should already have.
