Ultimate Comfort: How to Maintain the Perfect Temperature at Home

Maintaining a perfect temperature at home guarantees a healthy environment irrespective of the season. To ensure that your home temperature remains constantly favorable year round, there are certain practical steps you need to take. This article explores a few tips that may help in customizing your home’s temperature according to your preference.

Insulate Your Walls

Wall insulation ensures that your room does not lose warm air easily through the walls. It also prevents cold or warm outside air from entering the room, ensuring proper maintenance of your room temperature. Be sure to insulate every room in your home, plus any unfinished attic. The insulation type depends on your budget and the type of temperature control you need. One way to ensure proper insulation is to hire the services of an expert in home remodeling and energy solutions.

Air Conditioning

Air conditioning is one of the best ways of keeping a perfect home temperature. You need to install an air conditioning system in your house and set the temperature according to your priorities. Some companies like ACSIS Airconditioning Warehouse, know that it helps to cool and dry the air according to the settings, keeping your home temperature perfect. However, you need to carry out proper maintenance on your air conditioning unit regularly to ensure that it works properly. Replace any worn out filters and clean dirty vents regularly to ensure optimal function of the unit.

Windows

Large windows may disrupt your indoor temperature by allowing cold or warm air into your room, especially, during the winter and summer. To prevent this, ensure that you install proper curtains and blinds in your house, to prevent the entry and escape of heat. Installing windows with low solar heat gain coefficients can also help.

Construct Outdoor Shades

Installing external shades helps prevent the sun from shining on the windows directly, ensuring that your room maintains proper temperature. Trees act as wind breaks. Therefore, planting tree shades is important because tree shades block blowing cold air from entering your house. However, this is a long-term measure because tree shades need time to grow for them to fulfill this purpose.

In a nutshell, maintaining a perfect temperature in your home should be your priority if you do not want to compromise your comfort and that of your family. Following these tips to a tee makes it easy for you to have full control of your home temperature irrespective of the time of the year.

Food Insecurity - The USDA defines it as a state in which “consistent access to adequate food is limited by a lack of money and other resources… A household is food insecure if, in the previous year, they experienced limited or uncertain availability of nutritionally adequate foods.”

According to Feeding America, food insecurity is a problem. Almost 28,000 Douglas and 75,000 Arapahoe County residents (1 in 7 Coloradans) face this issue.
