This summer, you and your family will be depending on your air conditioning to keep your home cool. While regular maintenance can help to ensure that your air conditioning unit continues to work through even the hottest days, there is always the chance that the unit will simply quit. If this occurs, call Morvent’s One Hour for immediate help. Keep these tips in mind for staying cool until your HVAC unit is running again:
Drink Cold Water
Keep your body hydrated by drinking plenty of water. This helps regulate your body temperature and replaces the water lost through sweating.
Close Your Blinds
Keeping the sun’s rays out of your home is a good step towards maintaining a cool environment. During the day, close all the blinds in your home or, if necessary, hang up dark blankets over your windows.
Place Fans Strategically
Ceiling fans and box fans are relatively inexpensive to keep running. During the day, you’ll want to set the box fans at ground level where the cooler air settles; once the sun sets, move them to open windows and doors to blow in the cooler air.
Find Places with Air Conditioning
Find excuses to go to places that have functioning air conditioners. Spend the day at the mall or go see a movie. Spending an hour or two in a chilled environment will help keep you cool when you go back out into the heat.
