The last couple of months in Texas have definitely been a challenge when it comes to surviving the brutal summer heat waves in the great state. Just staying out of the sun and making sure you have your sunscreen on might be a couple of ways to avoid somewhat of the heat index but the reality of it is, it is scorching and miserable in the great state even if you’re indoors.

This is definitely not the time of the year when you want your air conditioner or fans to malfunction, considering that since the beginning of summer, here in Texas, we have stayed in the three digits when it comes to the weather. The term desperate times call for desperate measures is an understatement in the great state of Texas right now we will go out of our way to avoid the heat index. Texans all over have found a new method called "tenting" which has been truly effective. It’s really not very much to "tenting", but it works.

Tenting is very simple and it’s exactly what it sounds like. You take a tent and you surround your air conditioner with it. Some people may think that tenting comes off a little awkward, especially if you’re driving past and you see a really big tent just hovering over your air conditioner but there are so many benefits that come with tenting. The heat index in Texas is excruciating, once you cover your air conditioner, it gives the air conditioner shade, which allows it to cool off and prevent anything happening to your air conditioner pipes like  freezing.

 

Everyone knows if your pipes begin to freeze on your air conditioner, you have to turn your air conditioner off until the ice is completely thawed out and I don’t know who would want to do that in this Texas heat. Keep in mind if you were wanting to find a way to probably keep your house a little cooler and prevent your pipes from freezing, we suggest using "tenting" on your air conditioner Texas, is too hot not to.
