Ways to Stay Warm this Winter

Hyde Park Tenants Staying Warm and Cozy in their Rental Home this WinterWhen the weather becomes quite cold outside, your initial response may be to dial up your thermostat. Although, truth be told, super-heating your home isn’t the only way to stay warm during the winter. Instead of that, try out a few hassle-free, cost-effective guides to keep yourself and your Hyde Park home feeling warm and cozy throughout the coldest part of the year.

Dress in Layers

To keep from the cold, it’s critical to use layers of clothing suitably. This is precisely right if you will be always moving from the indoors to the outdoors (or vice versa) throughout the day. To keep yourself warm but certainly not overheated while indoors, just start with a light layer of wicking fabric first. Thereafter, add layers until you are warm and very comfy. Shirts, sweaters, jackets, and coats are a great choice for your top half; for your bottom half, take into consideration flannel-lined pants if you’re heading out. And always remember to use a hat, scarf, and socks! Keeping your head, neck, and feet warm can help make the rest of you feel warmer and more comfortable, too.

Winterize Your Home

If you’re sensing chilly blasts of air in your home that make you shiver, it’s wise thinking to check and seal up the more common areas where drafts and air leaks occur. Plenty of air leaks come from gaps around doors and windows. Try to place some caulking around the frame or replace the weather-stripping around the door frame. Both of these can help a whole lot. Just in case there’s a draft getting in beneath your doors, try placing a rolled towel or blanket there to prevent it. Thermal curtains, soft rugs, and other fabrics can also help alleviate cold spots and keep your home warmer.

Furnace Maintenance

If it’s been such a long while since your furnace had a check-up, see about scheduling a professional to come in and take a look at it. Similar to all systems in your home, your furnace needs regular maintenance to keep working efficiently. Sooner or later, your heating system will start to show wear, and it surely will have to work harder to hold a consistent temperature. But certainly, you can prevent this and bring down your energy costs, equally, by merely executing regular furnace maintenance and changing your filters as prescribed.

Use a Humidifier

If your area’s winter months are generally cold and dry, keeping a humidifier in your home can help you to stay warm while inside. Dry air tends to feel much colder than air with humidity. Cold, dry air moreover tends to induce your skin and hair to feel rough and dehydrated. To put some moisture back into the air, just use a humidifier. Even supposing you could invest in a whole-house humidifier system, it is not usually of the essence. Just opting for an inexpensive humidifier for frequently used rooms or even boiling a pot of water on the stove can certainly make the air in your home feel warmer and more comfortable.

Stay Active

Finally, nothing can warm you up more quickly than moving around. Whenever the weather gets cold, quite a lot of us want to spend long hours snuggling under piles of blankets. But as a matter of fact, that may not be the most appropriate practice to stay warm. Merely by staying active, you increase your body temperature, which can help you feel warmer longer. Habitual exercise routines are always a healthy idea considering that they help you build muscle and improve blood flow. But even simple actions like cleaning, playing an interactive game, or other types of movement can generally do the trick. Strive to add on active things that you relish into your daily routine to easily keep yourself warm and healthy all winter long.
