It was inevitable. You simply cannot live here and avoid writing a post on How to Beat the Phoenix Summer Heat and how an air con cleaner will clean your air conditioner and you will feel the air cooler than before. So here it is!
Summer does not officially start until June 21st, but if you live in Arizona that does not mean much. Around the 15th of May the top news stories start to revolve around how hot it will be in Phoenix today, when we can expect to get some relief from the heat, (Hint: mid October is a good bet) or wait for RAIN?!?! This type of “breaking news” story will continue, pretty much daily, until our blissful weather returns. Typically this happens some time around the end of September or mid October depending what year it is and who you are talking to. This AC Repair Service in Kelowna BC can be very helpful on these situations.
As of today, we have already had 5 days (I think that is right but don’t quote me on that, ok?) where the temperature has reached 110+ this year. It is going to be a long HOT summer! So, what do we do to survive the “record breaking heat” in Phoenix? Here are a few tips:
Stay inside. Enjoy the central air conditioning system in the comfort of your own home. However, according to a company like aqualityhvac.org/air-conditioning/air-filtration/, if you still don’t own a residential air conditioning unit or yours has been damaged and an air conditioning repair can’t save your unit anymore, it’s time you get a new a/c installation. Make sure to have AC tuneup and air conditioning services provided by an hvac repair contractor like Eastern Air Conditioning to ensure its effectiveness. I know that can be boring! Feel free to venture out to an air conditioned movie theater, museum or local library but be sure to take a sweater. We tend to switch on our air conditioning units here 24/7 to compensate for the summer heat. If you find the need to hire a professional, then check out sites like https://drwattselectric.com/.
Get Wet. Jump into the pool in your backyard. Don’t have a pool? I recommend making friends with someone who does, quickly! Head out to one of the area lakes; Saguaro Lake, Lake Pleasant, Roosevelt Lake, or Canyon Lake to name a few. Go to a water park or splash park. Typically the splash parks are FREE”¦Free is my 2nd favorite “F’ word. Those that know me don’t need to guess what my favorite “F” word is. I like the Rotary Splash Park in Fountain Hills. Duh, that was a no brainer”¦I live in Fountain Hills!
Staycation. To compensate for the dip in tourist activity in the hot summer months several local hotels offer smoking deals. Bonus: You don’t have to travel far to take advantage of the great deals. You can check out 10 area staycation recommendations here.
Day Trip. Can’t afford a trip out of town or a stay in a local hotel? No problem! Take a day trip to Flagstaff, Payson, Prescott, Sedona or Jerome to enjoy cooler temps.
The obvious tips:
Get Out Early. The temps are not scorching (yet) in the early morning hours. Run, hike (my personal favorite), walk or get your grocery shopping done before 8am. Extra tip: Make sure take a look at these ac electric motors to be able to replace them at home.
Dress lightly. Overall Phoenix is pretty casual, even more so in the summer months. Shorts, flip flops, tank tops, or a sundress are summer wardrobe staples. They are not frowned upon here.
Shade. It will become your new best friend. If you MUST go out look for a shady spot to park your car or yourself.
HVAC Repair. Make sure your AC system is properly working and let professionals like tsshomecomfort.com/cooling-services/ac-tune-up/ do an inspection to avoid the summer heat. Visit this ac repair in Monroe to help you with repair and maintenance. You can get it here.
Hydrate. Take water with you EVERYWHERE! I recommend keeping a cooler in your car filled with ice and water.
