Living in Calgary, we have four seasons: Almost Winter, Winter, Still Winter and Summer! As we all know, our winters can get harsh and cold. It can be miserable, and the whole city basically hibernates for about eight months. But after what feels like an eternity (especially with covid making it feel longer), around the corner, summer is here!
Summer, a time for vacations, beaches and long sunny days. It's also when the blazing sun beats down on us and temperatures rise. The year 2020 and 2021 has been in a word, strange. With our current situation, Calgarians have not had the chance to enjoy what a typical summer should be. We've been confined to our homes for almost two years now. But, as the situation gets better and vaccines start to roll out, we're slowly getting back our summer! And great timing too! One meteorologist from AccuWeather has predicted that we are in for one of Calgary's hottest and dryest summers.
Brett Anderson, an AccuWeather senior meteorologist, said the long-range forecast for Calgary is above average temperatures, and lower than normal rainfall is expected. After being stuck in the snow, Calgarians are all eager to soak up the sun. But with this heatwave coming in, things are going to get scorchy. It is essential to stay cool and look out for signs of heatstroke or exhaustion. Sunscreen and lots of water will be your best friend, that won't help cool down your home, and we all know how unbearable a hot house can be. That's where air conditioners come in.
Did you know that air conditioners have benefits other than keeping your house cool? Air conditioners can lower the amount of pollen, mold and other airborne allergens in the home. It prevents electronics from overheating, and heat can do severe damage and shorten their lifespan. We get better sleep in colder conditions, and better sleep means better overall health. Air conditioning will reduce the risk of heatstroke and dehydration. Lower body temperature means less sweating.
When choosing an air conditioner, it is important to do your research on products and companies.
