Staying warm in cold weather is just one of the many product upgrade benefits available when improving your HVAC system or using special appliances this winter season. Let’s look at a couple of the upgrades that can help you stay warm when it gets cold outside.
Many people suffer from dry skin when the weather turns cold. Not only is dry skin itself uncomfortable, but it can quickly become itchy. Those suffering from winter itch can scratch quite a bit, leading to bleeding and rashes. One way to avoid winter itch is to use a humidifier. This is because dry skin is the result of low humidity inside a building. A humidifier restores moisture to the indoor air and drastically reduces dry skin. This, in turn, reduces winter itch.
It feels good to run the heater all the time during the day, but it can lead to high energy bills. When waking up in the morning or returning home after a long day at work, the last thing you want to deal with is a cold home. To have a warm home during these times, many people will run their heaters all night or during the day when no one is home. But this uses a lot of electricity and fuel. One way to get around this is to use programmable thermostat.
With a programmable thermostat, you can turn your heater down during the day and at night. The heater will run less, and you’ll save on energy costs. But with the programming, your thermostat will automatically activate the heater just before you return home or wake up. So when you do step through the door or step out from under your bed covers, you will enjoy a warm house and never know that the heater wasn’t running for most of the day or night.
