When your home is hot and your room is cold, you have a problem: it can be dangerous to let your cold rooms out.
As well, when it comes to keeping cold rooms safe from getting too cold, there’s no easy answer.
Here’s how to keep a cold room in good shape: Keep it well ventilated The key is keeping your cold bedrooms well ventilated.
“A cold room should be ventilated, but you don’t want to ventilate your entire room,” says Amanda Schreiber, a health and safety consultant with the Canadian Association of Sleep Medicine and Therapists.
You want to ensure your cold bedroom has plenty of ventilation.
For a better result, get the ventilation system installed on the cold room’s walls and ceiling.
“That will help keep the room cool and help keep it from getting very hot,” she says.
“If you have cold rooms that are exposed to the outside, it will get very hot.”
If you have an open door, make sure you have good ventilation, too.
That means keeping the windows closed, too, as this will help your home become a better place for you and your family to rest.
If you can’t keep the door closed, seal it up.
“The key to keeping a cold bedroom in good condition is sealing it up,” says Schreib.
“This will keep it cold and keep it warm in the room, but also keep it safe for your family.”
If the room is closed and you’re uncomfortable, you should go to the bathroom.
If the water in the tub is cold and you feel itchy, you might want to make an appointment with your doctor to get treatment.
If that doesn’t work, you can make sure the cold water is warmed and is sitting right on top of the tub.
You can also turn on the air conditioning at the top of your home and let it warm up.
If there’s a vent in your room, make an effort to keep it in place.
“There are a lot of ways that you can try to keep things cool,” says Shuman.
“Make sure the walls are air tight, the ceiling is well vented, and you have proper ventilation.”
If there are hot tubs in your house, try making sure you can keep the cold tubs away from your cold family.
“It can be hard to keep cool in your cold home,” says Nevelyn.
“But if you are comfortable in the cold, and comfortable in yourself, then it can work out well.”
Don’t try to cool off in a warm room When you’re in a cold place, you may think it’s okay to take a hot shower or do laundry in a hot tub.
But, that could make your room feel uncomfortable and potentially dangerous.
“Hot tubs can make a room feel like it’s hot and dry,” says Nisbet.
“I would always encourage people to wash in the hot tub.”
Instead, if you’re at home, you could try turning off your heating and air conditioning, but that will take some getting used to.
“In a hot home, that can really feel like you are in the house,” says Sarah Hennell.
“You might not feel comfortable taking your bath, but it’s the most comfortable place to be.”
Keep a small kitchen and fridge in the home Make sure your home has a fridge and kitchenette to keep foods fresh.
If your refrigerator and freezer are too small, make room for a small microwave and fridge, so you can have something to grab a bite to eat.
“Don’t just put everything into a fridge,” says Hennel.
“We want to keep everything safe and fresh and warm in a fridge or freezer, and we don’t like it if we put things into the fridge that are not safe or have the wrong ingredients.”
If a fridge doesn’t have space for your meals, make space in your home for a separate freezer.
“Making space for a freezer and freezer can be a bit of a challenge,” says Jennifer Beaudoin.
“Once you have that space, you don?t want to add anything else to the freezer or freezer door.”
Use your own kitchen sink, if possible, to help keep things cold The sink should be used for water, not to cool food.
“Staying hydrated is important to a healthy home, so make sure that you have access to your own sink, so that you don?”t have to go out and buy water,” says Beaudoit.
If it’s not practical, there are other ways to keep food cold, such as using a plastic or metal water bottle, a microwave, or a freezer.
To keep food cool, you really want to use your own water bottle,” says Keiran O’Connor, a registered dietitian with
