What if my air conditioner breaks down in Oklahoma City in the summer?
It's hot in Oklahoma City in the summer time. The state map on the Mesonet site is solid red with high temperatures. With temperatures that can exceed 100 degrees and humidity over 60%, it can get really uncomfortable, really quick. So, what do you do if your air conditioner breaks down in the heat of the Oklahoma summer? Here are a few tips of ours on how to deal with an uncomfortable situation:
- Contact a reputable, honest, local Oklahoma HVAC company as soon as possible. Obviously, we at Executive Heating & Air would like to be your first choice if that situation comes up, and with over 15 years in the Oklahoma City metro of excellent service and lots of happy customers, we would be happy to take care of your home or business emergency.
- Turn on fans and get the air moving (if possible.) Having some air moving helps to lower your core body temperature and generally makes you feel cooler, quicker than stale, stagnant air.
- Drink cold fluids. Be sure to stay hydrated while you wait for your air conditioner to be repaired. When temperatures rise it's easy to become dehydrated, so be sure to drink plenty of cold water while you wait.
- Cool shower. If you have to, a long, cool shower can work wonders as you battle the heat. A cool shower should help to lower your body temperature and keep you comfortable until your a/c is back up and running again.
