Your body warms up the air, and it forms an insulating layer around your body. 0 Reply Share Share Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on LinkedIn Share on WhatsApp SeanUhTron Added an answer on August 13, 2019 at 2:32 pm Blankets are insulation. Your body produces heat and that heat escapes through your skin. If you want to keep warm, you trap that heat in by wearing thick clothing or by wrapping blankets around yourself. This keeps your waste body heat close to keep you warm. If you want to cool off, you wear lighter clothing or you use fans to blow away the waste heat, so cooler air surrounds you rather than baking in a bath of your own heat. For this reason, when the temperatures around you exceed your own body heat, fans stop cooling you off. You would be warming yourself up by using fans, as the fans start acting like heaters by blowing hot air onto you. 0 Reply Share Share Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on LinkedIn Share on WhatsApp hyretic Added an answer on August 13, 2019 at 11:59 am Your body is producing heat all the time. What blankets do is trap that heat around you, so it doesn’t escape as easy. 0 Reply Share Share Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on LinkedIn Share on WhatsApp Leave an answerLeave an answerCancel reply Attachment Select file Browse Featured image Select file Browse What is the capital of UK?
