For people who are accustomed to an indoor temperature that ranges between “it’s hot” to “it’s somewhat less hot”, the mere idea of having to heat your home is alien, to say nothing about being selective about which rooms to heat (for energy conservation). We simply cannot get used to it. Taking a coat to the bathroom shouldn’t be part of my daily routine!
