Description

Ensure that the temperature and humidity in the house are at a comfortable level. If it is hot outside, ensure it is cooled. If it is cold, ensure it is warm. If there are rooms that are normally more cold or hot than others, use a portable system or otherwise get them to the right temperature before visitors arrive.

Do not over-do this. If it is hot out, then ensure it is pleasantly cool indoors, not frigid. Likewise, avoid hitting people with too-hot air when they come in from the cold.

Remember that a house takes time to get to the right temperature. This is a good reason for not accepting viewings in the the very short-term. 

If you cannot do this, for example if you do not have air-conditioning when it is hot, then find ways to help the situation, for example opening all the doors and placing fans by them to move the air through and out of the house for a while before your visitors. Or even open the refrigerator for a while. You could also hire a portable cooler and tuck it away before the visitors appear.

Discussion

The human body is remarkably sensitive to temperature. We usually are comfortable only within a narrow band and quickly get progressively hotter or colder outside this. It is curious that other animals sometimes seem to be less sensitive, especially as we have the advantage of managing temperature through using layers of clothing of various sorts.

When people come into your house on a cold day, they may well be wearing coats, scarves and hats. Take these and hang them up. This is not just being polite -- it is ensuring they do not start to over-heat.

Core temperature is important. Thinner people heat up and cool down faster. Larger people have a deeper core and greater surface area so warm up fully slower. Their larger surface means they lose heat quicker, but a layer of fat will help to insulate the core.
