I don’t know about you, but it is HOT around here. I have lived in the south all of my life, and have grown accustomed to the heat, but it is nonetheless hot this time of year. Once thing that I am definitely thankful for is having a great AC in my house. I know that there are those that don’t have central heating and AC, and I am definitely thankful for that. One of the best ways that you can ensure that you have a smooth running AC in the Florida heat is to have the AC Service on stand by during summer. Don’t wait until you are sweating in a 85 degree house. Get your AC system serviced, the coils cleaned, and the entire system checked once a year. You will thank me later.
I tend to not think about my getting my AC serviced until it isn’t doing it job. Set yourself a reminder to change your AC filter every month. That is the easiest way you can help your AC system to keep good air flow, and not allow the fan and related components to work overly hard.
A camping trick to stay cool
As a family, we really enjoy camping during the summer when we take vacation. Heck, even when we go camping, we do our best to rig up some sort of AC for the tent. Nothing is worse for a camping trip than to have to sleep in a hot tent. One of the cheapest and easiest ways to stay cool in the Florida summer heat is use a swamp cooler . For about 20 bucks, you can build a cooler from easy-to-find parts that can be purchased at your local home center. Take it with you camping, or take it with you to the beach.
Sounds easy enough right? What tricks do you have that keep you cool during the summer? What do you like to do to keep the Florida heat at a minimum. We only have a couple months of bad heat left, but if you can keep cool, then why not?
