With the current pandemic still wreaking havoc around the world, it is important to do what you can to stay healthy. Here are some ways to stay healthy during the Midwest summer heat this year.
#1: Stay hydrated.
Hot weather means perspiration and sweat! Losing water means you will need to continually replace it. If you don’t, you could become dehydrated and muscles can start cramping. Drink plenty of water throughout the day so you can replace what you lose during the heat of the day.
#2: Understand heat exhaustion signs.
Losing body fluid can cause heat exhaustion. This means your body cannot operate with full functionality and you can feel excessively dizzy, thirsty, or fatigued. Serious heat exhaustion requires medical attention. If you ignore signs of heat exhaustion, you could pass out or even experience heat stroke. If you start feeling overheated, get to a cool place immediately and drink water. Putting ice and wet towels on yourself can help cool down your body temperature.
#3: Make sure you have a reliable cooling system.
Summer in Minnesota is hot and humid. It is important to have a reliable cooling system in place so you can stay cool all season long. If it is not staying as cold as it used to, or it seems to be making unusual sounds, don’t ignore it. It may need a simple repair. Or perhaps its old and has become inefficient. We can help get it replaced! A new cooling system that works well will help keep your body temperature regulated so you don’t overheat and feel negative health impacts.
#4: Consider adding an air purification system.
Indoor air can be dirtier than outside air! Mold spores, bacteria, allergens, and other viruses can make their way into the air and contribute to poor health. A reliable air purification system can help reduce exposure to illness and germs. We sell and install air purification systems that will transform the air you breathe, including:
