Bogs dont have cloth coverings on floors, or curtains over windows, losing a degree or two is easy.
Most houses with CH will surely only have only 1 or 2 thermometers that actually trigger the heating control. The rest of them are there pretending to grant the owner his wish for omniscience, but really they are jeering his more powerful sense of inadequacy. The Hive, perfectly poised to force an upgrade to the next madness- room-specific thermostatic control, even on the basis of an inconsequential 1-2 deg of difference. And even if the khazi were at the same temp as the rest of the house, it would still feel colder because of its cold hard surfaces (if not the floor the the glass, the walls, the pan etc), giving both visual and sensory impressions of coolth.
Hive, surely the perfect name. Served by millions of diligent, mindless workers. Should one worker (lets call him The Bee) doubt its utility, he is even more doomed because the Hive is already in his mind, locking his reasoning out of the boardroom, cosying up to the real boss: his perfectly tailored inner tyrant.
Bee then retreats into appeasing this urge, getting room specific heating because he swears blind that a pneumonia, or frostbitten flesh,is in the offing for him should he spend too long having a crap, fearful that its thermal opposite, Congolese Marsh Malaria that is pandemic in the Snug Room may be worse.
But how can it end there? Sure, the temperature around the sensor in the bathroom is just the air temp. The floor may be heated but what about the sink, the taps, the walls? And how about the part of any room where a window is near? And doesnt any sensor have a 5% tolerance? ..
