4 Comfort Tips for the Hot Weather

There’s one thing for certain if you’re reading this by the time it gets posted—it’s hot! We see some of the hottest weather of the year when we pass the Fourth of July, and we have yet to see some record-breaking heatwaves down the line. The nice part about this for many who are consistent readers of our blog is that their air conditioner is prepped and ready to protect them from the heat. An AC is always going to be able to keep you cool and comfortable when temperatures are way too high for comfort.

Well, for anyone who might be dealing with an AC that’s on its way out (but you don’t really have the budget to replace it yet), or for people who experience emergency AC failure, this blog post is for you. You could have a problem with your AC refrigerant in Warsaw, IN that only a professional can fix.

While we fix your AC, here’s what you can do in the meantime.

Get Your Refrigerant Leak Fixed and Recharged

One of the leading causes of an AC breakdown in our area is a refrigerant leak. It can be detected through a hissing or bubbling noise, as well as other problems like a lower cooling output in your home, high energy bills, and even a system breakdown.

If you suspect that your air conditioner doesn’t have enough refrigerant, then we urge you to call our team for professional support. We can locate, patch, and repair your refrigerant leak, while also providing you with a refrigerant recharge.

Stay Cool and Away From Sunlight

While you’re waiting for us to patch and repair the refrigerant leak, you’re going to need to stay comfortable in the sweltering heat. The first step for staying cool is to stay in the shade and avoid sunlight. Use the blinds and curtains in your home to stop sunlight from infiltrating your house through windows, since this will increase the temperature by a few degrees or more.

Keep Hydrated

Water is an essential part of life for human beings, and it becomes even more important when we’re overheated and sweating. Be sure to stay hydrated throughout the day and encourage your family members to hydrate as well.

Think about making some tasty lemonade or other chilly treats to keep everyone hydrated and happy. There are some great recipes for delicious frozen treats, snacks, and other beverages that will keep you comfortable, hydrated, and make the summer enjoyable.

Wear Loose-Fitting Clothing

We know that you might love the fall look of your favorite alumni sweatshirt and sweatpants, but unfortunately, that’s a combination that’s going to make you incredibly uncomfortable in the days to come. There’s a very good reason why people wear shorts, t-shirts, and tanktops in this type of weather.

Your body regulates temperatures by sweating and letting that sweat evaporate, which removes heat. With loose-fitting clothing like shorts and t-shirts, you get plenty of airflow so your sweat can be evaporated and you can feel comfortable again!
