Beating The Heat

Published August 5, 2014 in category: Experts Garage Doors And Gates.

Summer in California and The OC only means one thing – hot, hot, hot! While the state’s Mediterranean climate allows cities on the coast like Huntington Beach to experience summer fog and cooler temperatures, the farther you go inland the hotter it gets.

OC Local Garage Doors and Gates, having operated in Southern California for over 20 years, sympathizes with Californian residents who are just trying to keep cool. Check out these tips on how to use your garage and gates to beat the heat:

  • Shade


No need to stay inside when you have a garage! After lowering your garage door ¼ – ½ of the way down, set up lawn chairs and maybe even an inflatable pool to enjoy the hot day in the shade of your garage.


  • Water


Have a couple of kids throwing a temper tantrum because they want to go to Hurricane Harbor? Make your own water park by safely attaching a toy sprinkler system to shower water through your gate, and watch your children have fun right in your own front yard!


  • Storage


Always keep water and refreshments close by whenever spending a long period of time out in the sun. A refrigerator set up in your garage is the perfect way to hydrate when you’re feeling parched.

In the decade of 1999-2009, there were almost 7,233 heat-related deaths according to the CDC. OC Local Garage Doors and Gates cares about their customer’s health, and wants them to always be on the lookout for signs of heat stroke and exhaustion.

Heat Stroke and Exhaustion Signs

  • Dizziness
  • Nausea
  • Confusion
  • Headache
  • Paleness
  • Unconsciousness
  • Rapid Pulse

If you notice you or one of your family members experiencing any of these symptoms after exposure to hot temperatures, please seek professional help immediately.
