There is no way around itFlorida is scorching hot in the summertime! With high temperatures,  precautions are necessary to stay safe and healthy during these months. At Midway Services, we know that the comfort of a cool home is important enjoy the summer.

Sun Exposure

First of all, make sure you slow down a bit. Avoiding strenuous activity during peak hours of the day (11 am- 4pm) will help you refrain from getting too worn out and dehydrated. Did you know that the sunshine can actually make you feel tired? If you notice that you are feeling low on energy, it could be because you have been in too much direct sunlight for too long. Of course, our Florida sun is something we love and are proud of.  We certainly encourage spending time enjoying it, but in extreme temperatures, plan your day to limit excessive sun exposure during peak hours.

Hydration

Furthermore, it is so important to always stay hydrated, even if you don’t feel thirsty! Your body needs to replenish the water that you will be losing during this season. It can also help to eat smaller and more frequent meals in the heat.

A/C System

One of the best ways to stay cool in the summer is to definitely invest in a great A/C unit, so that your home keeps you comfortable. There is nothing better than coming into your home after a long day outside in the Florida sun and allowing the cool air to refresh you. We are offering you a free Wifi thermostat with your purchase of a system upgrade – see more here! If you have any questions in your mind about how to survive the summer heat, let us give you some easy, practical tips.
