We have had some cold weather to begin the new month, but the general trend of 2015 so far has been one of sweltering summer heat.
We received a lot of correspondence related to sleeping conditions in some parts of the country: namely, that it’s been too hot to get a proper night’s rest!
So in our latest poll, we asked the question: “How are you sleeping this summer?”, and it’s fair to say the results were unequivocal.
45% of respondents said they are getting terrible rest overnight dur to the heat, while a further 31% said they’re using fans or air conditioning to make the nights bearable.
20% of voters – the happy few – said that temperatures in general have been perfect at night – either in places where the summer heat has been a bit milder, or in houses with better insulation!
Don’t forget to check back tomorrow morning for our new poll!
