4 Things To Know Before Moving To a Warm Climate

When you decide to make the move to a warmer climate, you're making a huge lifestyle change. Beyond the change of adjusting to a new living environment, you're also adjusting to a new temperature environment. So, even though it might not seem that big of a deal initially, you'll find that your lifestyle changes quite a bit when you live in a warmer area.

As you adjust to your new home, you may find wondering if it's ever possible to cool off at times. Fear not—we've got you covered. Take a look at some of the things you should keep in mind before you move to a warm place. 

You’ll Have a Higher Energy Bill 

When you live in a cooler area having an air conditioner is completely unnecessary. However, when you live somewhere where temperatures soar above 80 degrees a good portion of the year, then an air conditioner is a critical must-have. So, it's important that you're prepared for the energy bill that comes along with an air conditioner. 

Initially, you might think that you can get by without an HVAC system and use just a fan—but, after a few sleepless nights, you'll be calling to get an air conditioner installed in no time. A/C is a part of warm climate living. 

You’ll Sweat Everywhere 

In normal living conditions, a little bit of sweat is a typical part of life. However, when you're living somewhere warm, you'll quickly realize that you are capable of sweating in places that you never thought were possible. Your body produces sweat in an attempt to try and cool itself down. So, if you notice that you're sweating way more than usual in your new warm home, don't panic. It's a perfectly natural reaction to hot weather.   

You’ll Need to Change Your Wardrobe 

Remember that sports bag under your bed stuffed full of warm weather clothes that you would only pull out once a year before? Well, you'll probably need to stuff it full of winter clothes now and pack your wardrobe full of even more summer clothes. 

You'll find that in extremely warm conditions, the last thing you want to wear is anything long-sleeved or made of jean. You'll need to pack your closet full of plenty of breathable fabrics that won't make you feel even hotter. 

You May Get Acne 

Many people find that switching to a warmer climate takes its toll on their skin. If your skin suddenly has a breakout due to the new levels of humidity in the air, don't panic. In many cases, it's only temporary and will eventually adjust. Just know that it's more important than ever to start wearing sunblock every single day. 

By following these tips and allowing yourself some time to adjust, you should get along nicely in your new warm climate home in no time!
