How do you handle a heat wave? Probably you stay indoors and enjoy the AC. But what if the AC breaks down during a heat wave? Be careful. Heat kills, especially the vulnerable old, young, and those who have serious medical conditions. There are some things we can do to help us survive until the air-conditioning is restored.
It is important to cover any windows that the sun strikes. Anything that keeps the sun from shining in will help. If you live in a multilevel home it is best to keep to the lowest floor, as heat rises. Most important is to call your air conditioning specialist to schedule a repair visit. That highly-qualified technician will be able to restore the flow of cool air to get your and your family safe and comfortable again.
