Now, the government has decided that air-conditioners to soon be sold with a default setting of 24 degrees Celsius. And, that will only allow you to do setting between 24 and 26 degrees Celsius. What???
Power minister R K Singh at the meeting made a statement by saying, "This is not only uncomfortable but is unhealthy." Well, a human body temperature is approximately 36-37 degree Celsius but if we consider hotels, offices and commercial establishments then they keep the temperature of ACs at 18-21 degree.
As per the recent reports, "the power ministry intends to issue an advisory to all commercial and public establishments to keep the temperature set at 24 degrees."
A campaign has run for six months and according to the feedback received from the public, now the minister made it mandatory to think. As the statement read as "these were decided at a meeting with AC manufacturers on Friday."
