When it gets cold, we all try a lot of things to keep ourselves warm in Huntsville. Unfortunately, some of these things are really making us colder! Luckily, All Weather Heating & Air Conditioning Inc is always available to perform your furnace maintenance
—and that will absolutely keep you cozy.
Check out some of the usual fables about what will help you warm up when the temperatures lower. These things are actually making you colder! Drinking hot drinks will warm you up. Wrong. It may feel nice and toasty to hold that warm mug, but once you consume a hot beverage, your body will work against you and turn on your natural cooling mechanisms. Ok, but alcoholic beverages can make you warmer. Wrong again. While alcohol can warm up your skin, it can actually 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 chillier when you hop out of the hot water and the water begins to evaporate off your skin in the cool air. You should always wear dark colors to absorb the sun’s heat and leave light colors for the warmer days. While it’s true that white or light clothing will reflect the sun’s rays, it may also reflect your body’s own heat back—fundamentally locking in 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 outflows from your head is proportionate to the area of uncovered skin on your head compared with the rest of your body. So, shelter as much skin as possible to dodge this heat loss.
