    It seems it would have to be rather cold, indeed, to produce
    symptoms like this. Like, knee-knocking, see-your-breath, cold. The
    possibility of humidity seems more likely.
    Is the room well-ventilated? If it's a case of being actually damp
    (condensation visible nearby), you could consider a space-heater, or
    dehumidifier. Of course, electronics and water don't mix well, so you'd
    want to stay as far as possible from kitchens and bathrooms; and just
    keep an airflow moving.
