7 Tips to Stay Cool This 4th of July Holiday 

  
  

 

Between fireworks, backyard celebrations, crowds, and the blazing summer heat, July 4th is one of the hottest outdoor holidays of the year. This year's Southwest Florida forecast is predicting temperatures of up to 90� during the day with a staggering 84% humidity. Whether you're hosting or attending a party this Independence Day, here are a few tips for surviving the extreme heat and outdoor festivities. 

 



  • Consider wearing light, colored, & loose-fitting clothing.
  • Offer up chilled foods like salsas, coleslaw, cucumber salad, and even these "patriotic" ice pops made with fresh fruit.
  • Make sure your AC unit is in tip-top shape (it will be working overtime if you plan to have guests in and out of your house all day long).
  • Keep your thermostat set at 78�, the standard temperature setting for the summer season. You'll be surprised at how cool your home feels after you've been outside in the hot sun. And, you'll save on your electric bill too.
  • For children's activities, consider toy water guns and water balloon games as fun ways to keep the kids cool (and occupied). Remember the old Slip n' Slide? Find one of the many water slide versions to create a mini water park in your own backyard. Fun for kids and adults alike.
  • Circulating air is always refreshing, especially during those non-breezy, muggy days. Arrange outdoor fans around your carport, patio, pool, or lanai, or carry around your own battery-operated mini fan. It may not be the tropics, but you'll definitely feel a little cooler.
  • Last but not least, keep your body hydrated. Drink plenty of fluids, especially refreshing beverages like lemonade, fresh juices, and of course H2O.

Happy Independence Day from Kenmark Air! We wish you a fun and safe holiday weekend. Don't forget to apply plenty of sunscreen and opt for an organic bug repellent, like Burt's Bees Herbal Insect Repellent, to ward off those pesky mosquitos. If you're planning on having an after-dark fireworks display, we encourage you to remember that fireworks can be dangerous and to follow safety guidelines to protect you, your family, and friends. Have a blast and stay cool!
