Calculator: Vampire ThermodynamicsPreamble
So, if a vampire spends their time in a cool crypt, how long would it take for their body to adjust to room temperature? Check it out below.
(Read the preamble for assumptions)

The calculation uses the cooling principle of a dead body (since, well, vampires...) -- it is the same principle used to calculate time of death according to the temperature of the body and ambient temperature.
T(t) = T[environment] + (T[initial] - T[environment])*e^(-kt)
Where k is the cooling constant of the body: -0.223
