When it gets brisk, we all attempt a lot of things to keep ourselves warm in Tucson. Unfortunately, some of these things are in fact making us colder! Luckily, A&M Heating & Cooling LLC is always ready to perform your furnace maintenance
—and that will definitely keep you comfortable.
Take a look at some of the common legends about what will help you stay comfortable when the temperatures drop. These things are in fact 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 drink a hot beverage, your body will function 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 reality, you’re only going to feel chillier 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 true that white or light clothing will reflect the sun’s rays, it may also reflect your body’s own heat in return—fundamentally blocking 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 comparable to the area of exposed skin on your head in relation to the rest of your body. So, cover as much skin as possible to evade heat loss.
So now you know what you could be doing improperly in trying to keep yourself warm.
