Room temperature is generally the temperature at which people find the surrounding comfortable. However, it can also be defined as whatever the actual room’s temperature is at that moment.

If we are talking about the first way to define room temperature, this number is generally between 15-25 degrees Celsius or 60-77 degrees Fahrenheit. This particular number varies based on the region, humidity levels, and how much air circulation is available.

Room temperature is the range of air temperatures that most people prefer for indoor settings. As a medical definition, the range generally considered suitable for human occupancy is between 15 degrees Celsius and 25 degrees Celsius. Human comfort tends to depend upon the level of humidity, air circulation, and other factors.

In specific fields, like science and engineering, and within a particular context, room temperature can mean many different agreed upon ranges. Many things are associated with room temperature. These include water, fruit and produce such as apples and bananas, and red wine is traditionally served at room temperature.
