Thanksgiving is one of the most popular holidays in the country, and it’s easy to see why! With copious amounts of food and gratitude going around, it’s a fun holiday for everyone. If you’re hosting this year’s shindig, you’ll obviously be busy planning the dinner menu and after-meal party games, but there’s another thing you need to prioritize — your guest’s comfort.
With all the body heat, talking, and cooking in your home this day, you’re going to want to take a few measures to ensure everyone stays cool and enjoys the holiday.
Keeping Your Home Cool This Thanksgiving
Crack a Few Windows
While you may normally want to keep out the chilly Lancaster air, on Thanksgiving Day, consider letting a bit of a breeze in. Since your home will be so warm to begin with (with all the hustle and bustle going on) a small amount of cold air will simply help alleviate some of the heat. So crack a few windows in your home, especially those in your kitchen and dining room.
Lower Your Thermostat
You don’t need your heating system pumping warm air into your home since you, your guests, and your appliances will already be doing that. This being the case, lower your thermostat a few degrees so you don’t add unnecessary warmth to your home and make everyone start to sweat.
If you have an outdoor grill or smoker, why not switch up the way you cook up Thanksgiving dinner. Smoke the turkey, grill up the veggies, and toast the rolls all outside so you reduce the amount of heat that gets produced in your home.
