Best Thermometers for Home Use

Tuesday, 1 December 2020  |  Olivia

Many people will remember the cool glass of mercury thermometers under their tongue from early childhood sickness. However, not only is mercury potentially poisonous, but thermometer technology has advanced dramatically over the last few decades. Following is a short but helpful guide to choosing a new thermometer suitable for home use.

The Best Thermometer for Home Use
It can be particularly difficult to take a child's temperature

Thermometers have been in short supply during the coronavirus pandemic as one of the primary signs of the virus is a fever or raised temperature. But why would our temperature tell us anything about our state of health?
