When it gets brisk, we all try a lot of things to keep ourselves warm in Siloam Springs. Unfortunately, some of these things are really making us colder! Fortunately, Siloam Springs Heating & AC is always available to perform your furnace maintenance
—and that will definitely keep you warm.
Take a look at some of the common fables about what will help you stay comfortable when the temperatures reduce. These things are in fact 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 gulp a hot 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 tends to warm up your skin, it can actually make you chillier because it can lower your core temperature. A long, hot shower or bath will do the trick. In reality, you’re only going to feel chillier when you get out of the nice water and the water starts 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 real that white or light clothing will reflect the sun’s rays, it may also reflect your body’s own heat in return—essentially blocking your body comfort under your clothes. Most body heat escapes through your head, so I’m good with my hat. The sum of heat that outflows from your head is comparable to the area of uncovered skin on your head in relation to the rest of your body. So, protect as much skin as possible to dodge this heat loss.
