Igloos maintain their warmth through the use of several different construction elements, including the shared use of compact snow in the main blocks and ice along the inside walls. Even though the igloo is made from snow, igloos can keep people warm. Instead of ice, igloos are created by blocks of windblown snow. These blocks are connected to each other.

They help trap heat and insulate the 'snow house.' The inside of the igloo has three different levels or tiers. A small fire is built at the bottom, and the inhabitant sleeps on the top layer. They can remain warm as warm air rises to the upper tiers, while substantial, cold air sinks to the bottom.

Yes, you can stay warm in igloos. As a matter of fact, that is one of the major reasons for which igloo houses are being built. The way the igloos are built in a dome form shape makes them serve the purpose. The interesting thing about the igloo house is that the temperature can be regulated or controlled. This is majorly done through the chimney. You can enlarge the chimney to reduce the temperature of the igloo, and you can cover it partially to increase the temperature. The igloo is usually in use during the winter period whereby the snow is more, and the atmosphere is cold.

During this period, you can hide from the cold by taking some time as long as you want in the igloo. The igloo can also accommodate small or light fire. You can light up a candle in the igloo, which will definitely increase the temperature of the house to keep you warm. Also, you can even cook in the igloo house, and this will definitely increase the temperature to keep you warm.
