Family owned and operated air conditioning company gives tips to keeping cool this summer.
GARLAND, Texas, July 25, 2018 (Newswire.com) - Beating the heat in the summertime can seem like an unattainable venture. Even with air conditioning, sometimes the Texas sun is too hot. This results in discomfort and irritability, which only makes everything worse.
Fortunately, A-US Air Conditioning of Texas has assembled these handy tips for surviving the heat of a Texas summer.
Drink Plenty of Water
People are supposed to drink water throughout the day anyway. Yet, in the summertime, drinking water and staying hydrated is even more essential. Sports drinks and anything that replenishes electrolytes is a good option too.
To infuse some flavor into the water, squeeze lemon juice into the bottle, or drop fruit inside. This will give the water a little touch of flavor, without adding too much sugar. Plus, there are plenty of different fruits to try and even special water bottles that are made for infusing.
Another tip for refreshing, cold water or sports drinks is to freeze the bottles before leaving the house. Then, take the bottles when leaving. Eventually, the ice will melt, and the drink will be fresh and cold for hours.
Alter Exercise Routines
Exercise is important all year long. While the summer might provide some unique forms of exercise, keeping to a routine is still important. Yet, while running, biking, or doing any kind of outside activity, it’s important to stay cool. One way to do this is to alter exercise routines to cooler parts of the day. Early morning and evening, before the sun has risen and after it sets are the best times.
Eat Small Meals
When people eat large meals, their body heats up as it tries to digest what they ate. This makes the person hotter, which can lead to them feeling uncomfortable or sick. So, instead of eating the normal portions of meals per day, try eating smaller meals throughout the day. This will help the body digest gradually, so it doesn’t have to heat itself up as much. This might take a little getting used to, but it’s worth continuing to feel good throughout the day.
Wear Light-Colored Clothing
Light colored clothing, especially cotton, is cooler than wearing dark colors and less-breathable fabric. Dark colors attract the light, while lighter colors reflect it. Wearing more breathable materials like cotton, linen, and silk helps the body regulate temperature better. Thus, it keeps the person cooler. Other material traps the heat, which makes the body work harder at cooling it off. This is counterproductive, since the more the body works, the warmer the body becomes. By wearing light, breathable material, the body doesn’t have to work as hard to cool itself down.
In summation, A-US Air Conditioning of Texas wants everyone to have a fun, cool, and relaxing summer. The company is comprised of Texas residents, so they understand the brutality of the sun against the Lonestar State. Therefore, A-US Air Conditioning comprised this list to help keep their neighbors cool when venturing outside.
