How to Keep Cool This Summer

With this spring being such a roller coaster ride for many of us, how we are going to stay comfortable all summer is probably not the highest of priorities. Luckily, that’s where we come in. Today, we’re going to break down some super simple ways to stay nice and comfortable inside throughout the hottest months of the year.

Block the Sun

One of the easiest ways to keep the temperature of your home down is to block out sunlight. While regular drapes and shades do this effectively enough, investing in heat-blocking window coverings can significantly increase the efficiency of your cooling system. If you have pets that love looking out the window, make sure you leave one window slightly uncovered, so your furry friend can live happily without adding too much extra heat to your living space.

Fix That AC

If you have air conditioning, but something is funky with it, we’re here to help you before the summer heat hits in full force. Our AC services team will repair, tune up, or even replace your cooling system to ensure maximum comfort all summer long. Hiring a professional is crucial to getting the job done right; therefore, don’t hesitate to call us today to schedule an appointment.

Hydrate

Staying hydrated is always a good idea, regardless of the weather. However, in the summer, drinking lots of water will help your body stay nice and cool even in the hottest of circumstances. Hydrating your skin with moisturizers like aloe vera is also a great way to help with any sunburn! We definitely recommend picking up a bottle of aloe vera gel for when you missed a spot with your sunscreen.

Fans, Fans, Fans

While fans don’t technically cool the air like an air conditioner does, having them in your home can help to cool a large space more efficiently. What fans do is help improve the circulation of air, which makes the room feel significantly cooler. Using multiple fans to create a cross breeze is the best way to achieve cooler temperatures without extra stress.
