Summer is typically a hectic time of year for many people in Orlando. Whether it’s a family reunion, a long-awaited vacation or any host of other outdoor activities, summer not only brings about crazy schedules, but that dreaded Orlando 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 keep cool during those days where you can’t get away to an air conditioned oasis? Health Canada has a few pointers:
Spending time outdoors is what summer is all about, but staying safe in the Orlando heat is a requirement. 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 never have to worry about it going out in the heat of the summer. Give Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning a call at 407-329-7661 or set up an appointment online if you have any questions about potential AC repair or how you can make sure that your air conditioner is operating at its highest level in the Orlando heat.
- Stay in an air conditioned area as much as you can. Of course, outdoor activities make this difficult, 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 consider yourself thirsty, as thirst can be an early warning of dehydration. If you begin having muscle cramps, take a breather as it may also be an early indicator of dehydration or another heat-related illness.
- Take precautions when organizing outdoor activities. Any type of workout or athletic practices should be held earlier or later in the day when the Orlando temperatures are more tolerable.
- Dress to stay cooler in hot temperatures. Light-colored, lightweight and loose-fitting clothing are your best bet.
- Keep your shower or bath a little cooler than typical. It can help you cool down a bit faster so you can get back to reveling in your home’s air conditioning.
