When it gets brisk, we all try a lot of things to keep ourselves comfortable in Litchfield Park. Unfortunately, some of these things are really making us colder! However, Cooler Tymes LLC is always available to do your furnace maintenance
—and that will absolutely keep you warm.
Check out some of the common myths about what will help you keep cozy when the temperatures reduce. These things are actually making you colder! Drinking hot drinks will warm you up. Wrong. It may feel nice and warm to hold that warm mug, but once you consume a warm beverage, your body will work against you and switch on your natural cooling mechanisms. Ok, but alcoholic beverages can make you warmer. Wrong again. While alcohol can warm up your skin, it can really make you cooler because it can reduce your core temperature. A long, hot shower or bath will do the trick. In fact, you’re only going to feel colder when you get out of the hot water and the water begins to evaporate off your skin in the cold air. You should always wear dark colors to absorb the sun’s heat and leave light colors for the warmer days. While it’s valid that white or light clothing will reflect the sun’s rays, it may also reflect your body’s own heat in return—basically trapping your body comfort under your clothes. Most body heat escapes through your head, so I’m good with my hat. The quantity of heat that escapes from your head is proportionate to the area of bare skin on your head in comparison with the rest of your body. So, protect as much skin as possible to avoid heat loss.
