May is known for Mother’s Day, Cinco de Mayo and May Flowers. May is also National Comfort Month and Aire Serv has tips on staying comfortable in the warm summer months.
- Don’t overheat your house
Use appliances that generate heat, such as ovens, washers, dryers and dishwashers, in the evening. If you use these household appliances in the middle of the day you can force your cooling system to work harder to cool your home.
- Dress for the weather
Lighter clothing reflects light keeping your body cooler during hot days. Avoid wearing dark or layered clothing and instead wear light colored clothing made of thin materials.
- Stay hydrated
Drinking plenty of water is important during the summer months. Stay comfortable by drinking water and staying in the shade as much as possible. Getting in the pool is another way to stay hydrated. If you exercise, make sure you are well hydrated and take plenty of cool-down breaks.
- Keep the air moving
Make sure you turn on a fan to circulate airflow. Even warmer air will become tolerable if it is circulated. If you work in a shop or garage make sure air is being circulated to help keep you comfortable. A building with no airflow can heat up quickly causing discomfort to those working inside.
- Get dirty early
Do yard work in the early morning hours before the sun starts to heat everything up. If you work outside and into the afternoon hours, make sure you alternate between light and heavy duties while drinking water and taking breaks in the shade.
These tips from Aire Serv will keep you comfortable during National Comfort Month and the hot summer months.
