Keeping a Consistent Temperature in Your Home in Fluctuating Weather

When fall approaches, different parts of the country react in different ways. Northern states begin preparing for winter while southern states often barely notice at all. In Los Angeles, though you get the best of both worlds. Balmy temps during the day, and chilly temps at night.How about the inclusion of custom roman shades by Valley Drapery at your space?

While many people may find this to be an absolute dream, it can be a challenge to maintain a consistent temperature in their home.

Overnight the temps are low and you might even turn on the heat. This means that your home goes from warm to cold and back to warm each day which can make it difficult to keep interior temps stable.

Here are a few tips to help you achieve it.


If you open windows, close them before the sun goes down.

Many people love to open their windows during the day to let the sunshine and allow cooler fall breezes to waft into the room. However, leave that window open until nightfall and you will have a much cooler room that isn’t as comfortable to be in.

If you like to open your windows during the day, close them before the sun goes down. This way, you will be ahead of the temperature drop and it will be easier to keep your space just right.

Put your thermostat on a certain temperature and keep it there.

This may seem like a no-brainer, but set your thermostat at a certain temperature and simply do not move it. Let the thermostat regulate the temperature for you. Many people set their thermostats at around 68 degrees, give or take a degree or two.

By using this set-it-and-forget-it method, the thermostat does the heavy lifting. All you have to do is live comfortably.

Use drapes, blinds, and shades to keep the interior of the home the same temp regardless of the temp outside.

Many drapes, blinds, and shades will act as insulation when closed. Make sure that blinds and shades fit in the window with no gaps or spaces for air to get in. Drapes should be lined and designated as insulated drapes.Drapes los angeles is not hard to find. You can contact Valley Drapery to get drapes at an affordable price.

Keep cozy throws readily accessible to make chilly temps easier to bear.

Instead of cranking up the heater when someone gets cold, let them wrap up in a warm, soft throw instead.

Place several throws at different points in your room, on the sofa, on a chair, at the foot of the bed, or anywhere someone can get to it fairly quickly without having to dig through a trunk or closet first. This also makes wrapping up in the throw less of an imposition. You have them out and that is an invitation to cuddle up!
