Summer is usually a hectic time of year for many people in Fort Worth. Whether it’s a family reunion, an extended vacation or any number of other exciting activities, summer not only brings about full schedules, but that dreaded Fort Worth 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 maintain your cool during those days where you can’t go to an air conditioned oasis? Health Canada has a few tips:
Spending time outdoors is what summer is all about, but staying safe in the Fort Worth heat is non-negotiable. And when you do finally make it back to air conditioning, make sure you’ve covered all of your AC repair and air conditioner service needs so you do not have to worry about it going out in the heat of the summer. Give Stark Services a call at 817-668-6689 or set up an appointment online if you have any questions about potential AC repair or how you can make certain that your air conditioner is working at its highest level in the Fort Worth heat.
- Stay in air conditioning as much as you can. Of course, outdoor activities make this hard, 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, take advantage of it.
- Drink plenty of fluids. Sip on your drink even if you don't think thirsty, as thirst can be an early sign of dehydration. If you begin noticing muscle cramps, take a breather as it could also be an early indicator of dehydration or a separate 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 Fort Worth temperatures are lower.
- Dress to stay cooler in hot temperatures. Light-colored, lightweight and loose-fitting clothing are your best options.
- Keep your shower or bath a little colder than typical. It can help you cool down a tad faster so you can get back to basking in your home’s air conditioning.
