The weekend is coming and, unlike Memorial Day weekend, you can expect sunny skies and hot weather. Temperatures are expected to reach 95 degrees and that means remembering the heat safety practices from our earlier blogs. Heat safety doesn’t just apply to time outdoors. Even indoors, you need to protect your family, pets and the house itself from overheating. Take it from us at Elmer’s One Hour Air, the San Antonio AC company that cares, keeping your home cool and comfortable is just as important as protecting yourself outside in the Texas heat. You may see it as an uncomfortable inconvenience, but a broken air conditioner can do more than make you sweat. High temperatures inside your home can warp wood floors and furniture causing them to bend or crack. Bubbling and peeling paint is another sign that the temperatures in your home are far too high. Without the mild dehumidification that a running air conditioner provides, humidity levels in your home can rise. This can lead to mold, mildew and turning your home into a paradise for dust mites. This is bad news for anyone with asthma, allergies or other breathing difficulties. To prevent this from happening, call Elmer’s One Hour Air for the air conditioning repair San Antonio homeowners are raving about. If your weekend plans include an afternoon of grilling, floating the river or just lounging by the pool, remember to safeguard yourself, family members and pets from potential heat illness. That means stocking up on sunscreen, staying hydrated and finding nice patches of shade for rest. If you’ll be spending your time indoors to cultivate a porcelain complexion, relax with a good book or cheer on the Spurs, make sure that your air conditioner is ready to keep you cool.
