Heat Advisory Precautions

Heat Advisory Precautions

According to the National Weather Service (NWS), heat is the number one weather-related killer in the US. On average, excessive heat claims more lives each year than floods, lightning, tornadoes, and hurricanes combined. The NWS has issued a Heat today due to the combination of high temperatures and high humidity which has created a heat index of 114F. Children, elders, and those with mental illness or respiratory problems should stay indoors as much aHeat-Advisory-Today2s possible. (Make sure indoors has air conditioning).

The last thing anyone wants is for their air conditioner to break down on a day like today. However, if you need AC repair service or replacement, My Plumber Cooling technicians can fix, repair, or
replace your AC. We are experienced in servicing any air conditioner make or model and will get your cooling system up and running quickly. We also specialize in cooling system maintenance and AC tune-ups that we guarantee all
summer long . Regular AC maintenance will help prevent breakdowns, extend the life of your cooling system, and save you money on your air conditioning bills by keeping your system running efficiently.

If your home does not have air conditioning, go to a shopping mall or public library. Your body will stay cooler even if you spend just a few hours indoors before you go back into the heat. Call your local health department to see if
there are any heat-relief shelters in your area. Electric fans may provide comfort, but when the temperature is in the high 90s, fans will not prevent heat-related illness. Taking a cool shower or bath or moving to an
air-conditioned place is a much better way to cool off.
