Keep the Kids ‘Cool’ in School

The Better They Feel, the Better They’ll Do

Time to sharpen the pencils and label the folders: School is back in session.

Looking and being “cool” in school is very important to kids these days. But what about staying cool in the hot weather? This is much more important—yet it’s something they don’t even think about.

While you are busy helping your child stay cool in school, the experts at Blanton’s will work on keeping your home feeling just as comfortable. We are available 24/7 for professional air conditioning repairs in Aberdeen, NC, air conditioning installations and more.

The Coolest Tricks in the Book

Prevention really can be a miracle cure when it comes to children and cooling systems, alike!

Here are some tips and tricks to help your child beat the heat:

Hydrate, Then Hydrate Some More

What you consume can have a big effect on how you feel. Hydration is key to staying healthy this time of year.

  • Make sure your children have a water bottle and tell them to fill it throughout the day.
  • Avoid packing soda and other diuretics that cause the body to lose water.
  • Include the following foods in your kids’ summer diet:
    • Watermelon
    • Strawberries
    • Cantaloupe
    • Cucumbers
    • Baby carrots
    • Iceberg lettuce
    • Celery
    • Tomatoes

To help your cooling system stay healthy during the summer months, contact the professionals at Blanton’s to perform a system tune-up.

The Hat Trick

We’re not talking sports here. A hat can work wonders to protect your child from the sun during recess. It can also help prevent painful sunburn!

Dress for the Season

Safety shouldn’t be sacrificed for the sake of fashion. Ensure your child is wearing loose-fitting clothing to help stay comfortable throughout the day. Cotton is a great choice because it is lightweight and dries faster than other materials. From sundresses to T-shirts, there are plenty of options. Your child will be happy with the look and, more importantly, how he or she feels!
