When it gets cold, we all seek out a lot of things to keep ourselves warm in Naples. Unfortunately, some of these things are actually making us colder! Fortunately, CNR Air Conditioning Inc is always ready to check on your furnace maintenance
—and that will certainly keep you comfortable.
Check out some of the common legends about what will help you keep cozy when the temperatures lower. These things are actually making you colder! Drinking hot drinks will warm you up. Wrong. It may feel nice and warm to clutch that warm mug, but once you gulp a hot beverage, your body will function against you and switch on your natural cooling mechanisms. Ok, but alcoholic beverages can make you warmer. Wrong again. While alcohol tends to 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. Actually, you’re only going to feel more cold when you hop out of the hot water and the water begins to evaporate off your skin in the cool 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 back—essentially blocking your body warmth 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 proportionate to the area of uncovered skin on your head in relation to the rest of your body. So, shelter as much skin as possible to evade heat loss.
