What Is an Average Room Temperature?

The average room temperature is said to generally be 70 F (about 21 C). This temperature tends to provide a comfortable feeling for those in the room.

An average room temperature varies but tends to stay in a range. That range typically runs from about 68 to about 74 F (20 to 23 C) and is focused on the point on the temperature scale at which people feel neither too hot nor too cold.

Medical experts contend that a more ideal average room temperature is 68 F. They select this number because this temperature is considered optimal for obtaining the best possible night's sleep.
