Staying Cool in Oklahoma Heat this Summer

As summer temps begin to heat up in Oklahoma, keeping cool becomes a top priority for residents across the state. 

At Frontline Comfort, we understand the importance of staying comfortable during the scorching summer months. While having a tuned-up air conditioning system is pivotal to keeping your cool, there are a few more things you can do to beat the Oklahoma heat.

Here are our expert tips to help you combat Oklahoma heat and stay cool all season long:

1. Seal in the Cool:

One of the most effective ways to combat the heat is to keep your home well-insulated and sealed. Make sure all windows and doors are properly closed to prevent cool air from escaping and hot air from infiltrating your living space. Consider weather-stripping and caulking any drafts to maximize energy efficiency and keep your home comfortably cool.

2. Embrace Smart Cooling Habits:

During the hottest hours of the day, it’s essential to minimize heat gain inside your home. Keep curtains or blinds closed to block out direct sunlight and reduce solar heat gain.

Avoid using heat-generating appliances like ovens and dryers during peak hours, opting instead for cooler times of the day. By adopting these smart cooling habits, you can help maintain a comfortable indoor temperature without overworking your air conditioning system.

3. Optimize Your Thermostat Settings:

Set your thermostat to a comfortable temperature and leave it there. Resist the temptation to constantly adjust the temperature, as this can lead to unnecessary energy consumption and strain on your AC system. Consider investing in a programmable thermostat that allows you to schedule temperature adjustments based on your daily routine. By optimizing your thermostat settings, you can keep your home cool and comfortable while saving energy and money.

4. Stay Hydrated and Cool:

In addition to keeping your home cool, it’s essential to take care of yourself during the Oklahoma summer heat. Stay hydrated by drinking plenty of water throughout the day and avoiding sugary or caffeinated beverages that can dehydrate you.

Take frequent breaks in shaded or air-conditioned areas if you need to be outdoors, and wear lightweight, breathable clothing to help stay cool.

5. Plan Ahead for Peak Hours:

On particularly hot days, plan ahead to minimize heat exposure and maximize comfort. Consider running errands or engaging in outdoor activities during the cooler morning or evening hours when temperatures are more manageable. This will also allow you to minimize the amount of times your home’s doors are opened during peak hours, keeping your cold air indoors where it belongs.

With these tips in mind, you’re ready to beat the Oklahoma heat and stay cool all summer long. Looking to explore more energy-efficient cooling solutions for your home or to schedule an air conditioning service? Our team at Frontline Comfort is ready to help. Contact us today!
