A good house is largely defined by the climatic comfort it guarantees, which translates not only into mild temperatures, but also into good air renewal.

After all, how to have the most comfortable house in winter?

Climatic comfort is achieved through the use of materials that improve thermal insulation, and the entry of natural light, which helps to control the loss of heat and energy.

Promote the Entry of Natural Light

By promoting the entry of natural light into the house, through windows, there will be a reduction in energy consumption both in lights and in the heaters themselves. The most recent window models are made of thermally insulated glass, which helps the house conserve temperature and increase natural light with the aim of reducing the use of air conditioning technologies, which is also an added value in terms of environmental and monetary savings.

In addition to climate comfort being essential to ensure physical and mental well-being, and to preserve the environment, it also ends up directly influencing the body by regulating the circadian cycles that produce reactions such as sleep, waking up, tranquility and stress.

Replacing windows that no longer seal well

Seek to change the windows, doing so as soon as possible, and choose to install new windows that suit the space, not only to avoid heat loss and cold entry, but also to provide greater comfort inside the house.

Roof windows are a great solution because they offer many advantages, as they not only allow sunlight to enter directly into the rooms, warming them up, but also facilitate and improve air ventilation, which is very important for creating a healthier environment. , without humidity, odors and dust. Houses must breathe, so it is necessary to allow hot, stale air to escape and fresh, clean air to enter every room.

Use specific lighting for each space

Making the different rooms of the house comfortable also involves adapting all the lighting present. Using more yellowish lamps and, if possible, with dimmable intensity, in specific points of the house, such as next to the sofa, the television unit or on top of the bedside table, ends up making the space visually warmer and more welcoming.

Matching home decor to the season

Home decor is where we can be a little more eccentric and take chances. It's easy to change and innovate, depending a lot on your mood. Adapting the existing decoration to the season of the year is essential to maintain the comfort of the houses. With the arrival of the cold, it is advisable to choose to replace summery colors, which are cooler and more cheerful, with warmer colors, for example, in cushions, blankets, tablecloths, and to choose more polar or woolen textures.
