Now that the days are growing shorter with the ground covered in either frost or (gasp) snow each morning here in Edmonton, it’s time to begin thinking about how to keep warm this fall, and with the upcoming holidays season. We’ve compiled a list of ways to stay warm both outdoors and indoors in your Edmonton apartment this fall.
Keeping Warm In Your Edmonton Apartment
To all the disappointed “snowbirds” Canada-bound this winter, there are plenty of other ways to keep warm, and next year hopefully traveling to tropical beaches will be a reality once again. So, what are a few ways to keep your apartments comfortable enough in cost-friendly ways this fall and winter?
Use Proper Heating Techniques
Did you know that it takes more energy to turn your baseboard heaters on and off than to leave them on a continually comfortable temperature? Now you do! Luckily the suites at the Nautical Luxury Suites at Summerside use a forced-air heating system, saving you tons on your electrical bills. Much more cost-effective and eco-friendly than baseboard heating.
Dress For the Weather
Dressing for warm weather includes indoors as well. It’s as easy as throwing on a snuggie (does everyone still use those?) or your favourite pair of sweatpants and hoodie, and cozying up on the couch with a cup of tea for the evening. A dream scenario during a pandemic if we do say so ourselves!
Cook A Good Dinner
Remember how this past summer it was too hot to think about turning on the oven, and we all started barbecuing outdoors to escape the heat? Now even cooking ourselves a good dinner will help warm us up this fall! Bonus — your apartment is bound to smell of mouth-watering goodness.
If you’re looking for a suite with easy BBQ access, all of our suites come with natural BBQ gas outlets on the patios – just to keep in mind for next summer!
What better way to get your heart rate up, get that blood flow going, and warm up indoors? Even yoga gets your body moving to keep you warm. Oranj On Demand, a local franchise, offers quite the variety of online classes from yoga, barre, and pilates to fitness, spin, and even dance classes online. Even connect to your TV via Chromecast/AirPlay or directly with an HDMI.
Psst, be sure to take advantage of their one-week free trial (while it lasts).
Bundle Up With Extra Blankets
Even simply adding one extra blanket to your bed can make a world of difference when it comes to staying warm indoors in Edmonton. It’s much easier than adjusting the temperature of your apartment. If you wake up too hot in the middle of the night, you can just kick the blankets off.
We recommend picking up a cute blanket ladder to keep them on hand and organized all year long.
Staying Warm Outdoors in Edmonton
Cold weather doesn’t mean we’re bound to spend all of our time indoors shivering and chattering our teeth, but it doesn’t mean you have to be cold outdoors either. With a few tips and tricks, you can still enjoy all of the beauty of the outdoors in Edmonton without sacrificing comfort.
Dress In Layers
Think long johns or leggings, wool socks, jeans, t-shirt, sweater, jacket, toque… dressing in layers can help keep you warm enough to still enjoy some of Edmonton’s greatest outdoor trails and hikes, no matter the weather.
Enjoy A Warm Beverage
What’s your favourite warm drink? Tea, apple cider, or one of the many ways to enjoy a delicious coffee? Go to your favourite local coffee shop and splurge on something delicious and seasonal.
Have you ever seen these wonderful inventions? Most likely. If you work outdoors in the cold months especially, you’re no stranger to Grabber Hand Warmers. Starting in the Fall though, these items start disappearing from the shelves, so grab some while you can.
Fan of bulk? Costco offers a pack of 80 Little Hotties Hand Warmers for a steal!
Physical activity helps keep us warm – we know this. During COVID-19, many events are being held outdoors this year to alleviate physical contact. Try your hand at ice skating outdoors within steps of our community at Lake Summerside, skiing/snowboarding at Snow Valley Ski Hill, snowshoeing, or even just a nice moderate stroll around your neighbourhood with your favourite furry friend since Nautical at Summerside is pet friendly.
