Summer is typically a hectic time of year for many people in Orlando. Whether it’s a family reunion, an extended vacation or any host of other fun activities, summer not only brings about crazy schedules, but that dreaded Orlando heat as well.
We know you’ve already taken care of all of your AC repair and air conditioner service needs well in advance of summer, so what else can you do to keep cool during those days where you can’t escape to an air conditioned oasis? Health Canada has a couple suggestions:
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 taken care of all of your AC repair and air conditioner service needs so you never have to worry about it breaking down 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 ensure 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 hard, but if you are able to take a short 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 to experience muscle cramping, take a break as it may also be an early sign of dehydration or another heat-related illness.
- Take precautions when organizing outdoor activities. Any type of workout or athletic practices should be done earlier or later in the day when the Orlando temperatures are more tolerable.
- Dress to stay cooler in high 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.
