Why is regular air conditioner maintenance important?
Did you know that more people in the United States die from heat each year than any other weather related cause (National Weather Service)? With temperatures soaring into the 90s in metro Detroit, it is important to be safe in the hot temperatures. Being in too hot of weather for too long of time can have negative consequences like dizziness and heat exhaustion, and it can even lead to deadly heat stroke.
According to The Weather Channel, the people most at risk for heat stroke are: the elderly, children under age 4, those living in homes without air conditioners, and those with chronic diseases.
When the temperatures are high, the CDC suggests that you try to stay in the air conditioning as much as possible. If your home does not have air conditioning head to a family member or neighbor’s home that does, or try well air conditioned areas such as movie theaters and shopping malls.
If you haven’t had your air conditioner inspected, it is not too late to do so. Regular air conditioner maintenance is important to ensure that you and your family are safe and comfortable this summer. Also remember that Flame offers 24/7 emergency service.
