I think part of it is I enjoy heavy excersize,
so cool conditions at a relaxed state are very odd to me.
Maybe the 23C setting is for heat pump mode rather than air con mode. I don't think I've ever seen air com running in a house over here, just malls etc. It's 22C inside here at the moment, and the thought of turning on air con at 23C sounds crazy, it's not even close to being too warm inside.

22.5 C in my room at the moment. I just have this little fan heater with a thermostat. Wearing track pants and a t-shirt.

If I ever wore long sleeves inside the temp could probably go down to 18 C or so. Shorts and t-shirts are reserved for 25+ C.

A couple days ago it got up to 31 C in here (although the high was only 17 C my room gets the sun all day, so it warms up a lot) and I was tempted to open a window. But I decided that the windows needed to stay closed in case it got too cool later on. I had to cool off by going outside at regular intervals. By midnight it had cooled down to a comfortable 25 C.

Despite having the highest standards of warmth of anyone on this forum it sounds as though you're pretty happy with Bunbury (compared to your ideal climate Bunbury must seem like the South Pole).

Amazing, I could only dream of such indoor temperatures in my house. My computer room faces north west and never gets any sun, the house has little insulation and thick stone walls so is always cooold. The highest temperature it ever gets even in the warmest days of summer is about 22°C.

One would need about 5 heaters all putting out around 2000 watts in order to get us up to 31°C!

I'm guessing it's about 60 F in my bedroom since I've had the window open all day today. Loving the fresh air and cool breeze.

Only for a short time hopefully. Due to various home issues. What a bugger!

Might have to endure the winter here. Grr.r
