Cold Moves in the Spring
What do you do when it feels like Fall instead of Spring
Mother's Day is right around the corner, Memorial day and the unofficial start of Summer is a few weeks ahead. The temps should be getting warmer or at least staying in the 60s, but the next week is going to feel more like Fall than Spring.
With nighttime temps dipping into the high 30's and low 40's I've found myself turning on my heat for an hour or so to get the cold out. Many of us turn off our heating systems for the Spring and Summer once we see temps in the 70s. A few weeks ago we had an 80-degree day and now we'll be lucky to see temps in the 60s. You can turn on your heating system to get the cold out but there are a few other things you can do to combat the colder temps.
Keeping the window shades open during the day to let in the sun's natural warmth will help keep your home comfortable. Make sure to close them during the evening to trap the warm air in. If you want to keep your heating system off, space heaters are a great way to supplement your heat and to heat the room you are in. Make sure space heaters stay away from anything flammable.
The cold snap won't last past the weekend though, so stay strong summer is right around the corner.
