The winter seasons can be rough. In Texas, we experience all sorts of crazy weather patterns, but one thing is for sure: When winter comes rolling in, it can get cold, especially in the northern regions of Texas. We’re finally in the thirties this week, which might not mean much to those who are used to stronger temperatures, but to those born in the south, that’s pretty darn cold. So, if you’re one of the many locals that need a little extra help on how to stay warm this winter, then keep on reading. Temp Pro Mechanical, Inc has got a few tips for you.
Six Ways to Keep Warm This Winter
Candles & Fireplaces.
Fire is what it’s all about, so if you don’t have a fireplace, use candles to generate some heat in the areas of your house that you frequent. You don’t even need a huge candle to generate heat, size, surprisingly, does not matter when it comes to candles. A simple tea light can generate enough heat to boil water. HVAC wasn’t always around, and people, shockingly, lived without the aid of any HVAC system. They depended on their fireplaces to keep them warm, and that’s all that was needed.
Hot Chocolate, Tea & Coffee.
It’s really this simple, folks, if you’re feeling a little extra cold, do yourself and your body a favor
and get some warm liquids in you. Pick out your favorite brand of coffee, hot chocolate, or tea and make it. Remember, during the winter, mornings and evening can get rather cold, so get that nice hot cup of something and enjoy it by that candle or fireplace.
Rugs & Curtains.
Curtains, they’re your best friend. During the summer months they help you keep your house cool, and during the winter months they help reduce the temperature variation by offering a source of insulation. Curtains aren’t the only type of material that can help do that you know. Rugs, not only offer insulation, but they also offer comfort and warmth beneath your feet.
If you’re that kind of person who’s always finding themselves wearing a jacket or sweater no matter the season then you should invest in a heating system, specifically space heaters. They’re small, compact, but pack quite a punch in defeating the cold. They’re a great, inexpensive way, to bring some warmth into a space ( or a room).
Another form of heat to keep you warm during the cold months is simply buying an Electric Blanket. Yes, Electric Blankets, are great pieces of technology that allow you to stay warm throughout the night. There really isn’t any need to heat up the entire house when you’re sleeping, so buy yourself an electric blanket to stay toasty.
When all else fails, go to your kitchen and start baking. Obviously, your biggest heating system in the house is your over, so put it to use during the winter months. Everyone is usually baking or cooking for days on end anyway. Need to bake something for a friend or a neighbor? Perfect! Use it as an excuse to start warming up that house of yours.
