Summer is usually a hectic time of year for many folks in London. Whether it’s a family reunion, a long-awaited vacation or any number of other outdoor activities, summer not only brings about busy schedules, but that dreaded London heat as well.
We know you’ve already handled all of your AC repair and air conditioner service needs long before summer came, so what else can you do to maintain your cool during those days where you can’t go to an air conditioned oasis? Health Canada has a couple pointers:
Spending time outdoors is what summer is all about, but staying safe in the London heat is non-negotiable. And when you do finally make it back to air conditioning, make sure you’ve covered all of your AC repair and air conditioner service needs so you do not have to worry about it not working in the heat of the summer.

- Stay in an air conditioned area as much as you can. Of course, outdoor activities make this hard, but if you are able to take a couple-minute break and take advantage an air conditioned building at a park or a vehicle’s air conditioning, do it.
- Drink plenty of fluids. Sip on your drink even if you don't think thirsty, as thirst can be an early warning of dehydration. If you begin having muscle cramps, take a break as it may also be an early sign of dehydration or a different heat-related illness.
- Take special measures when scheduling outdoor activities. Any type of workout or athletic practices should be done earlier or later in the day when the London temperatures are more tolerable.
- Dress to stay cooler in higher temperatures. Light-colored, lightweight and loose-fitting clothing are your best options.
- Keep your shower or bath a little cooler than usual. It can help you cool down a tad faster so you can get back to enjoying your home’s air conditioning.
