Summer is normally a busy time of year for many people in Savannah. Whether it’s a family reunion, an extended vacation or any number of other outdoor activities, summer not only brings about crazy schedules, but that dreaded Savannah heat as well.
We know you’ve already handled all of your AC repair and air conditioner service needs long before summer came, so what else can you do to keep cool during those days where you can’t get away to an air conditioned oasis? Health Canada has five pointers:
Spending time outdoors is what summer is all about, but staying safe in the Savannah heat is non-negotiable. And when you do finally make it back to air conditioning, make sure you’ve taken care of all of your AC repair and air conditioner service needs so you don’t have to worry about it going out in the heat of the summer. Give Coastal Service Experts a call at 912-208-2399 or set up an appointment online if you have any questions about potential AC repair or how you can make sure that your air conditioner is working at its highest level in the Savannah heat.
- Stay in air conditioning as much as you can. Of course, outdoor activities make this tough, but if you are able to take a couple-minute break and escape to an air conditioned building at a park or a vehicle’s air conditioning, do so.
- Drink plenty of fluids. Sip on your drink even if you don't think thirsty, as thirst can be an early indicator of dehydration. If you begin to experience muscle cramping, take a few moments to rest as it may also be an early indicator of dehydration or another heat-related illness.
- Take precautions when organizing outdoor activities. Any sort of workout or athletic practices should be completed earlier or later in the day when the Savannah temperatures are more tolerable.
- Dress to stay cooler in higher temperatures. Light-colored, lightweight and loose-fitting clothing are your best choice.
- Keep your shower or bath a little cooler than typical. It can help you cool down a bit faster so you can get back to enjoying your home’s air conditioning.
