Spring is over and summer is just around the corner. The heat has already peaked at over 90◦ in some east coast cities. Soon, that temperature will get even higher, which will increase discomfort for us and our pets. According to this article from the Humane Society of the United States, one of the steps a pet owner can take is:
Watch the humidity
“It’s important to remember that it’s not just the ambient temperature but also the humidity that can affect your pet,” says Dr. Barry Kellogg, VMD, of the Humane Society Veterinary Medical Association. “Animals pant to evaporate moisture from their lungs, which takes heat away from their body. If the humidity is too high, they are unable to cool themselves, and their temperature will skyrocket to dangerous levels—very quickly.”
If your house windows in Monmouth County NJ fail to keep the warm air out, it can be very detrimental to the health of your pets, primarily because of the way they respond to higher temperatures. The best way for you to keep the house cool is getting the best windows for your home. New types have several significant functions like preventing drafts from entering and reflecting heat back outside. Consult experts who install insulated frames, specially treated glass and advanced sealants to help them remain weatherproof and stop air leakage.
At All County Exteriors, we know how important health is and we understand that for many, the pets are considered to be part of the family. That’s why we always make sure that the windows in Monmouth county NJ we install are always of the best quality. Give us a call today before the heat becomes unbearable.
