Keep Cool During AC Problems in Home or Work Settings
During hot Texas weather, a cool home is a happy home. At Brown & Sons Plumbing, we are all too familiar with calls from customers who are having AC problems in home or business spaces. During the short time it takes for a specialist to arrive to make an emergency repair, there are a few things you can do in order to stay cool.
Know When to Open and When to Close
You may be tempted to open up the windows to allow a breeze to circulate your space during the day. This can be effective, but typically opening up a home is best to do at night when the air is cool. If you leave during the day, keep the blinds closed and curtains drawn to trap cool air and prevent the sun from warming the house.
Turn off the Lights
As you are awaiting Denton AC repair, switch off as many lights and other sources of electricity as possible. A number of items will add heat to a home while they are turned on, such as lamps, ovens and coffeemakers.
Someone with AC problems in home units can quickly cool down by applying cold water or ice cubes to pulse points. This is effective in the following areas:
- On the wrists
- On the back of the neck
- On the forehead
Not only will you feel immediate relief, but employing this method can actually reduce your body’s temperature by up to 3 degrees Fahrenheit for as long as an hour.
Our team at Brown & Sons Plumbing offers 24/7 emergency repair for AC problems in home or business settings. That means you will not have to wait long for relief, and turning off the lights or applying cold water to your forehead can keep you cool while waiting for one of our specialists to arrive.
