Energy-saving indoor temperatures explained (and why tourists won't 'fry')
Wednesday, August 24, 2022 @ 9:23 PM

EUROPE'S move to cut energy use in a bid to reduce its dependency on Russian gas, to curb climate change and tackle ever-increasing fuel costs has led to action affecting the high street in Spain – but, despite reports in some international press about how tourists will 'fry in summer and freeze in winter', the actual impact is set to be minimal.

And steps taken elsewhere on the continent are at least similar to those of Spain or, in some cases, even more restrictive.

Since a week ago, private- and public-sector buildings – including workplaces, hotels, bars and restaurants – are required to set their summer air-conditioning to a temperature no lower than 27ºC.

Once winter weather starts in earnest, indoor temperatures must not rise above 19ºC – which, in most of the southern half of the mainland, will involve the same air-conditioning devices as those used to regulate heat and cold in summer, since they double up.
