When it gets cold, we all try a lot of things to keep ourselves comfortable in Naples. Unfortunately, some of these things are actually making us colder! Luckily, Speedy Air Conditioning is always ready to do your furnace maintenance
—and that will definitely keep you warm.
Here are some of the common fables 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 grasp that warm mug, but once you drink a heated beverage, your body will function against you and turn on your natural cooling mechanisms. Ok, but alcoholic beverages can make you warmer. Wrong again. While alcohol will warm up your skin, it can really make you chillier because it can lower your core temperature. A long, hot shower or bath will do the trick. Actually, you’re only going to feel chillier when you leave the nice water and the water commences 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 valid that white or light clothing will reflect the sun’s rays, it may also reflect your body’s own heat in exchange—essentially blocking your body comfort under your clothes. Most body heat escapes through your head, so I’m good with my hat. The amount of heat that outflows from your head is equivalent to the area of uncovered skin on your head in comparison with the rest of your body. So, protect as much skin as possible to dodge this heat loss.
