Temperatures are hot and they’re only getting hotter. We need to start facing the reality that we just shouldn’t try to stay at home without an air conditioner. These systems keep us happy, comfortable, and productive. With more of us working from home than ever, it’s clear that the condition of your air conditioner is going to reflect the condition of your life.
So, first and foremost, we’d like to extend our hand out to customers in our area and be clear that we can provide AC repair in Stuttgart, AR whenever you need it. It doesn’t matter the condition your system is in, and it doesn’t matter how bad you think the problem is. Customer satisfaction is our number one goal, and we’ll always be upfront and honest with you about pricing and the work that needs to be done.
However, while you’re waiting for our technician to arrive, it’s important that you stay safe and comfortable at home. Here are a few ways to do that.
Stay Safe and Secure in Your Home
We all know at this point that getting too hot can be uncomfortable as well as dangerous. If your air conditioner has broken down, your first step is to call us for repairs. We’ll schedule something quickly, and in the meantime, it’s important that you stay safe, hydrated, and happy in your home. Don’t let our record-breaking hot temperatures deter you from living your life.
Human beings require a lot of water to brace the summer heat. We can keep comfortable by sweating out that water, and as it evaporates it dries us off and cools us down. In order to make sure you’re not dehydrated, it’s important to drink lots of water or cool, hydrating beverages. This is especially true for our furry friends, since they require plenty of water to stay cool and comfortable.
If you do spend time outdoors, make sure you bring a water bottle or have access to drinking water close by!
Change Your Air Filter
While you’re waiting for a technician to arrive, if you’re feeling antsy, you can go ahead and replace the air filter in your air conditioner. This is a vital component that’s responsible for keeping the interior components of your system in good condition. It can’t hurt to provide this kind of maintenance and a professional will be happy that you helped!
Use Ceiling and Box Fans
Fans are an excellent way to remain cool on a hot day. They use minimal electrical energy and when put in the right places, can create airflow that is sure to lower the temperature by a few degrees. The air from a ceiling fan can help accelerate the degree by which your sweat evaporates, drawing heat from your body and sending it elsewhere.
Limit Exposure to Sunlight
Sunlight, as well as other bright lights in our homes, are a huge source of heat. Just allowing sunlight to filter in through your windows might be aesthetically pleasing, but it’s adding a few degrees to your home’s temperature.
Draw the curtains and close the shades so you can keep things comfortable while you wait for a professional to fix your air conditioner.
