Beat the Summer Heat!

As seen on Fox & Friends – July 23, 2022

It’s July in Georgia. That means it’s likely 90+ degrees with what feels like 1,000% humidity. Seriously, there’s a reason people call it HOTLANTA. But, with school approaching and the kids about to be inside doing school work on a computer screen all day long, we really want them to go outside, and stay outside to PLAY! We also don’t want them (or us) to turn into a pile of sweat. Below are some great options for helping with the heat.

Did you know that Jetstream evaporative coolers can drop the air temperature by as much as 30 degrees Fahrenheit with a single pass? That’s like having air conditioning for the outdoors!

The Portacool Jetstream™ 230 delivers cooling comfort to the single-person workspace. It is an efficiently designed product that offers maximum versatility for usage in open or condensed workspaces. Featuring oscillating louvers, low-water shutoff and Kuul Comfort MicroTech™ evaporative media, this cooler is great to move from one location to another all around the backyard, the garage, the front porch…wherever we want to be!

MoistureShield’s Vision capped wood composite boards with their innovative CoolDeck® technology is just the right product to protect our three little sets of feet running around in the hot Georgia summers.  This amazing technology can reduce heat transfer by up to 35% making it more comfortable to go barefoot even in some of the warmest weather.  Oh, and those cute sets of feet we mentioned earlier…well they are also great at making messes and tearing things up.  But MoistureShield Vision decking is protected by their DiamondDefense coating to resist scratches, stains, and damage on impact!

This is a solution your feet with thank you for!!!

Stay cool this summer with an all new, innovative, quick-attach Misting line up exclusively at Lowe’s! This is perfect for patios, backyard spaces, and pool areas. They also come in handy for gardening! Your pets will love them to beat the summer heat, as well.

These can cool air up to 20 degrees and the best part? They’re all under $25 a piece!

The Quick-Attach Mini Mister is the one stop shop for personal misting. You can quickly and easily clip or strap this to your patio chair, tables, or railings because of its flexible tube which allows for mist wherever you position it.

The Portable Misting System is perfect for umbrellas, deck railings, pergolas or garden spaces. It has 20 feet of tubing and four misting nozzles.

The FlexiMist allows you to adjust the height to your preference. There are 8 misting nozzles for ultimate cool-downs. You can use it to cool off the patio, or even let the kids have fun playing games in the backyard.

Last, but not least, is the Fan Conversion Kit. It turns any standard fan into a Misting fan with the easiest setup. I love to use it while grilling out or enjoying an afternoon on the patio with family.
