Stay Cool In High Temperatures With These Tips

How To Survive The Heat If Your AC Is Malfunctioning

The spring and summer temperatures in Arizona can be unforgiving, even a threat to your health. Younger children and the elderly in particular are especially at risk of health concerns caused by high heat and caregivers advised to take precautions during extreme temperatures. Heat can be particularly detrimental to you and your family’s health when your AC unit is not functioning properly during a heat wave. 

Make use of these tips to stay cool if your AC feels like it’s not functioning properly or you experience a surprise breakdown and are waiting on a technician for repairs.

Stay Hydrated

Being overheated can lead to heat stroke and potentially death. Water moves heat from your organs, out to your bloodstream. Once the heat reaches the skin, you will sweat. Sweating causes evaporation, cooling you down and keeping your body temperature within a healthy range.

Keep Your Air Vents Opened

There is a belief that closing AC vents in unused rooms will save energy by redirecting the flow of air to other vents, but this is far from the truth. Whether your AC is functioning right now or not, you should always leave all of you air vents open so that the air can flow through the channels freely. 

Closing them will raise your energy costs, increase pressure in your air ducts and reduce the efficiency of your system leaving you with even less cold air flow. This pressure and inefficiency will also put more strain on your system, putting it a risk for a shortened life span.

Use Ceiling Fans

Having your ceiling fans running won’t actually make the temperature lower, but the circulated air will make your body think that your home is cooler than it actually is. In fact, using ceiling fans can make the temperature feel as much as 10 degrees lower than it actually is, which can make all the difference to a hot room.

Simon Peterson was my service technician. Very impressive young man. He explained everything first, did the work and gave me suggestions of what I could do in the future to extend the life of my unit. No high pressure, no bs. I highly recommend Hobaica and Simon for A/C repairs.

I had a leaky faucet and, because our regular plumber was out of town, called Hobaica because they have serviced our AC/heating units for years and I knew I could trust them to do plumbing work, too. Ryan Waters came over in just a couple of hours and quickly diagnosed and fixed the problem. I would recommend him to anybody who needs an honest and efficient plumber.
