Summer is typically a hectic time of year for many folks in Alliance. Whether it’s a family reunion, a long-awaited vacation or any number of other outdoor activities, summer not only brings about full schedules, but that dreaded Alliance heat as well.
We know you’ve already handled all of your AC repair and air conditioner service needs long before summer came, so what else can you do to maintain your cool during those days where you can’t escape to an air conditioned oasis? Health Canada has a few suggestions:
Spending time outdoors is what summer is all about, but staying safe in the Alliance heat is a must. And when you do finally make it back to air conditioning, make sure you’ve handled all of your AC repair and air conditioner service needs so you do not have to worry about it going out in the heat of the summer. Give Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning a call at 330-235-1260 or set up an appointment online if you have any questions about potential AC repair or how you can make certain that your air conditioner is operating at its best in the Alliance heat.
- Stay in air conditioning as much as you can. Of course, outdoor activities make this tough, but if you are able to take a quick break and escape to an air conditioned building at a park or a vehicle’s air conditioning, do so.
- Drink plenty of fluids. Sip on your drink even if you don't think thirsty, as thirst can be an early warning of dehydration. If you begin noticing muscle cramps, take a breather as it can also be an early indicator of dehydration or a different heat-related illness.
- Take special considerations when organizing outdoor activities. Any type of workout or athletic practices should be done earlier or later in the day when the Alliance temperatures are cooler.
- Dress to stay cooler in high temperatures. Light-colored, lightweight and loose-fitting clothing are your best options.
- Keep your shower or bath a little more cool than usual. It can help you cool down a little faster so you can get back to reveling in your home’s air conditioning.
