When it gets brisk, we all attempt a lot of things to keep ourselves cozy in Brookfield. Unfortunately, some of these things are in fact making us colder! However, Central Air LLC is always here to perform your furnace maintenance
—and that will absolutely keep you comfortable.
Check out some of the collective legends about what will help you stay comfortable when the temperatures reduce. 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 heated 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 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 more cold when you get out of the nice water and the water begins 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 return—basically locking in your body heat under your clothes. Most body heat escapes through your head, so I’m good with my hat. The sum of heat that emits from your head is comparable to the area of bare skin on your head in relation to the rest of your body. So, cover as much skin as possible to avoid heat loss.
