3 Things You Can Do Until the AC Repair Company Arrives

Picture this: Illinois is smack dab in the middle of a summer heatwave and your home’s air conditioning system decides to break down. Sounds like your worst nightmare, right? Well, while this definitely doesn’t sound like an opportune time for your cooling system to fail, there’s no reason get all hot and bothered. Here are a few things you can do to keep cool until the air conditioning repair company arrives:

  1. Go for a swim! There’s no better way to cool off on a hot day than by taking a dip in the pool. Not only can a pool help you cool off, it’s also a great way to clear your mind!
  2. Hungry? Avoid turning on the stove or the oven to cook your meal as these are both major heat-producers in your home. Go out to eat or grill up your favorite meats and vegetables outside.
  3. Turn on your ceiling fans in order to keep air circulating throughout your home. Although ceiling fans don’t actually generate cold air, they can help make your skin feel cooler. We also recommend placing box fans in the windows at night to draw cool air in from the outside.

We understand that air conditioning problems don’t happen between 9 and 5. We’re here for you 24-hours day and that includes weekends and holidays. At ABC we make repairs easy and we’ll keep you and your family cool and comfortable all summer long.
