Prepare For A Fresno Winter | Heating Your Home
Having to deal with winter can be unpleasant at times. One should be able to come home to an inviting and warm home after a long day’s work. A chilly, under-heated house is quite unwelcoming and deprives the relaxation everyone deserves.
Inefficient heating systems and inadequate insulation all throughout the house or building can be disastrous for everyone.
Have you thought about your heating needs? Is your house ready to keep everyone warm throughout the cold winter nights? Will it stay warm enough inside to keep the entire family comfortable?It’s time you checked to make sure your heater is fine tuned and ready to take action.
Why Heating Service Is Important
The Department of Energy recommended setting the thermostat to 68 degrees during the day and even lower when you’re away or sleeping. Moreover, Direct Energy has general recommendations for winter thermostat settings:
- If someone is at home in the daytime, 72° F (22° C) is a good start, but aim for 68° F (20° C).
- If everyone is away from home in the daytime, or you’re asleep at night, we feel 66° F (19° C) to 62° F (17° C) is best.
Keeping your house properly heated during the cold season will determine the amount of comfort the entire household enjoys and protects from the possible health risks that could result from improper heating. Such health risks can be effectively avoided.
Lower the reproduction of airborne allergens. Any moisture within the house condenses as soon as winter comes due to low temperatures – which could lead to further dampness and mold formation. Molds are known to be one of the number causes of complications and further aggravates respiratory conditions such as asthma and other types of allergies.
Installing exterior fans in bathrooms and in the kitchen will vent stale and humid air outside of the house and helps in keeping the entire property ventilated.
Those with heart conditions are at risk. The blood pressure and heart rate can be affected by less than ideal temperatures. During colder days, arteries constrict, blood pressure and heart rate will increase becoming extra detrimental to those already suffering from any heart conditions. With proper heating, the risks associated with cardiovascular ailments are lessened.
Everyone can sleep soundly. Being able to sleep through the night comfortably and without interruptions is one of the key factors into having a healthy lifestyle. Having enough sleep every day helps your body recuperate and regenerate well. If the temperature of your bedroom is lower than your body’s temperature, mostly likely you won’t have a peaceful sleep, depriving your body of its much needed rest. Properly heated rooms help you sleep soundly which boosts your resistance to the most common diseases such as cough and colds.
