June 27

Posted by Damon Jones on

June is just about to be gone, and everyone is looking forward to the up coming Fourth of July weekend. Looks like the weather is going to cooperate this year except for one exception, it's about to get HOT in Montgomery. Temp's next week will be in the upper 90's, with a high heat index. Of course, it was in the mid 90's the last couple of weeks, so we had a chance to get a little used to it. Been along time since we've seen this kind of warmth around here. With that in mind, here's a couple of suggestions.

Stay hydrated and pay attention to those around you, especially children and older folks to make sure they are properly hydrated. Don't stay out in the direct sun any longer than neccessary, and if you are going to be outside, take breaks, sit in the shade, you know the drill. Be smart and prepared. Also, your HVAC system should be able to maintain around a 25-30 degree difference in temperature, in ideal situations. Depending on how your home is built, it may not make that swing. With that in mind, you might want to bump your thermostat up a bit, 76-78 degrees will feel good when it's so warm outside. Also, check your filter and change it if needed. I suggest changing your filters monthly, but you need to at least inspect the filters monthly and change if needed. Fans are also good in this type of weather.

Stay cool, and have a nice weekend.
