Even though the furnace is cycling on and off to keep the thermostat reading 68 degrees, she walks around the house in bare feet wearing shorts and a tank top. The house still holds the summer sun and feels warm in spite of the outside temperature.

Then she’ll need thick socks and sweaters as the bones of the house try to steal her heat.
