Signs Of Heat Stress Or Heat-Exhaustion

Oct 15, 2020

We are truly in the dog days of summer. At On Time Elmer plumbing, we understand not everyone has access to air conditioning. That’s why it’s so important to keep a close eye on friends, family and neighbors during these consecutive days of triple-digit heat – particularly the elderly.

According to the Mayo Clinic, here are some of the signs of heat stress or heat exhaustion.

  • Feeling dizzy
  • Nausea
  • Intense sweating
  • Low blood pressure
  • Low-grade fever
  • Heat cramps
  • Headaches
  • Fatigue

If someone you know experiences these symptoms, the Mayo Clinic recommends getting them the following: get them into the shade or somewhere with air conditioning, have them lay down with legs slightly elevated and provide them with a glass of cool water or another drink without caffeine. If the person faints or gets worse, obviously call 911.

We may think we’re used to 100-degree weather here in Texas, but it never hurts to keep an eye on those around us.

If you are experiencing any of the signs that your water heater needs repair or replacement, don’t hesitate to call a professional.
