The thermometer is theindispensable temperature measuring tool in the life of a man, and in his trades. In effect, the professional thermometer can make a career in the medical profession, in the hotel and catering industry or even in large industries. Over time, the thermometer has slowly taken its place in family living spaces and in domestic medicine cabinets. To help you choose your thermometer, the experts at Thermometre.fr draw up for you the list of most practical thermometers for the home and their use.
The room thermometer for the home 🌡
The installation of a indoor thermometer (also called thermometer hygrometer) allows temperature and humidity measurement in all areas of the house. It brings a real comfort of life to all the members of the family over the seasons. Its use has always been quite widespread, but it is more so today since since the start of the health crisis, telework has become more democratic and we spend more time at home.
Although like a certain Gallic village, the classic wall thermometers still and always resist the invader, the room thermometers are usually numeric. Their screen allows you to read the outside temperature in comparison with the ambient temperature of the room in which it is located, as well as the humidity level.
The indoor thermometer is particularly used in children's and infants' bedrooms to monitor the right temperature, as in living rooms so that you feel good there, in winter as in summer. If you have a veranda or conservatory set up for reading or having tea, the hygrometer will also give you the humidity level which you can then regulate. Some homes even push its use to control the measurements of their vegetable garden or greenhouse. For best use, the indoor thermometer should be placed away from direct sunlight and drafts.
The medical thermometer for home use 🩺
The most common thermometer that almost makes us think we're the Dr. House of the house is the clinical thermometer. It is of course used to take its temperature in different ways; rectally, under the armpit, through the ear canal, etc. Some infrared models even stick directly to the forehead or eardrum for greater ease.
Forehead or ear thermometer
The forehead thermometer, which looks like a water pistol, generally works without contact, which offers considerable ease in taking the temperature of a baby, for example. It positions itself in front of the forehead and emits an audible signal after a few seconds before displaying on its screen the body temperature of the person who potentially has a fever. This thermometer for individuals is increasingly used in companies since it is of rare simplicity and practicality of use.
The digital ear thermometer works exactly the same way as the forehead thermometer, the difference is that the measurement is taken by ear and not by forehead. The latter is widely used in school infirmaries, it is practical, fast and reliable.
Underarm, oral or rectal thermometer
The one you probably know best is the flexible or rigid digital thermometer. We all have this special thermometer in our drawers to take the temperature of children or our own. The temperature measurement is done orally, axillary or rectally using a small rod and is particularly precise. Once the thermometer has recorded the temperature, it beeps and displays the temperature on its digital screen. Simple, practical and inexpensive.
The bath thermometer 🛁
Surely you have at home a hippopotamus-shaped waterproof thermometer, giraffe or other cute animal, with round edges and made of very soft rubber. Indeed, temperature management for well-being and health begins in early childhood with the bath thermometer! The recommended temperature for a baby's bath is 37° Celsius (98° Fahrenheit), which you can easily monitor with a digital or conventional infrared thermometer, available at any birth store.
This small basic object intended for infants can also be used after a long day to bask in a bubble bath. Important information: the ideal temperature for a relaxing bath is between 30°C and 37°C depending on your degree of chilliness (welcome the placement of the lexical field 😜).
You will always find the same type of particular thermometers in homes. Some have the advantage of providing you with a feeling of well-being and serenity at home by controlling the indoor temperature and the humidity level. others measure your body temperature and detect fever so you can take action on your health and that of family members.
