Hypothermia is a silent killer and can strike suddenly.
But how do you know whether a room is really warm enough for an elderly or disabled relative or friend?
Electronic Temperature Instruments new digital thermometer could be the answer.
And we have TEN thermometers to give away.
Many cold-related illnesses are caused by a gradual drop in temperature over a sustained period of time.
As we get older, our bodies do not respond as well to changes in temperature, which means that in a lot of cases we may not even realise the colder temperatures are damaging our health.
The Comfort thermometer’s easy to read colour-coded digital display alerts the user when the temperature has dropped to harmful levels.
Below 16°C a digital arrow points towards the blue area of the LCD indicating that the room temperature is too cold.
The unit also indicates when the temperature should be comfortable, or is too hot.
To win a Comfort thermometer just tell us the temperature that the unit indicates it is too cold.
