When it gets chilly, we all attempt a lot of things to keep ourselves comfortable in Justin. Unfortunately, some of these things are really making us colder! Fortunately, Pepper AC & Htg Inc is always ready to check on your furnace maintenance
—and that will absolutely keep you cozy.
Check out some of the usual fables about what will help you stay comfortable when the temperatures lower. These things are really making you colder! Drinking hot drinks will warm you up. Wrong. It may feel nice and toasty to grasp that warm mug, but once you drink a warm beverage, your body will work against you and start your natural cooling mechanisms. Ok, but alcoholic beverages can make you warmer. Wrong again. While alcohol can warm up your skin, it can in fact 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 more cold when you leave the warm water and the water starts to evaporate off your skin in the frosty air. You should always wear dark colors to absorb the sun’s heat and leave light colors for the warmer days. While it’s real that white or light clothing will reflect the sun’s rays, it may also reflect your body’s own heat in exchange—basically locking in your body heat under your clothes. Most body heat escapes through your head, so I’m good with my hat. The quantity of heat that outflows from your head is equivalent to the area of bare skin on your head in comparison with the rest of your body. So, cover as much skin as possible to evade heat loss.
