It’s back to school season, which means it’s time for the hustle and bustle of getting a schedule together, getting out of the house on time, staying up on homework, and making sure you still fit in quality family time.
This year may look and feel a bit different than those in the past, but no matter what, back to school planning will be important in the following weeks for you and your kids. Whether they are learning online or in the classroom, they still need a suitable space to learn and grow. They need to feel comfortable and feel they can stay focused on their work.
Read on to learn about how to keep your home comfortable while you prepare for “back to school” season.
Remote Learning At Home
Are you teaching/learning from home to start the school year? Make sure everyone stays comfortable and healthy with the help of Logan Services.
Improve Your Indoor Air Quality:
Indoor air quality is extremely important; breathing clean air inside of the home will help to keep your family healthy and safe. Consider scheduling a duct cleaning service to help rid your vents of dust, pet dander, allergens, and germs. You may also look at improving your air quality by use of an APCO UV Light, which will purify your indoor air. Because this UV Light assists in destroying viruses and bacteria within the home, you can expect to boost the overall health of your family
Stay Up On HVAC Repair & Maintenance:
When you have a comfortable space to learn in, you will likely help your kids focus better. No matter the season, whether heating or cooling, you will want to make sure that your A/C and furnace are working effectively. If you are experiencing inconsistent temperatures or breaking down of your air conditioner, you might need to consider a service call or maintenance appointment to get it back up and running properly. Don’t put off making the call for help; an HVAC malfunction can often cause more harm the longer it goes unattended to.
Know When To Consider Heating/Cooling System Replacement:
If you are experiencing issues with an older HVAC system or major repairs need to be made, equipment replacement might be your best option. A new heating and cooling system will bring you peace of mind that your home comfort will be taken care of no matter what the season (and the at-home learning schedule) throws at you.
Attending In-Person Schooling
In contrast to the learning environment, many kids will be going back to classes in person. When you send you kids back to school, consider ways that you can help them stay comfortable and focused with all the distractions going on. Even though there are some things that you can’t control with the school, such as the HVAC system, you can help your kids find comfort in the school in other ways.
Provide Clothing Options:
Some schools have plenty of air conditioning, and if kids don’t bring a jacket or some warmer clothes, they may be cold and uncomfortable all day. Make sure your kids pack a jacket or sweater or a change of warmer clothes. The same tip applies if the school has no air conditioning or if your child gets hot easily; make sure they pack some clothes that are cooler that align with the dress code in case they need them.
Pack A Water Bottle:
It’s always important to stay hydrated, so make sure your kids take a water bottle with them to school so they can drink water throughout the day. Hydration is vital for promoting good health and supporting the immune system. Drinking water can help your body naturally eliminate toxins and other bacteria that may cause illness.
Practice Good Hygiene:
Now more than ever, provide your kids with the importance of good hygiene. Explain the importance of washing their hands while at school, pack a pocket-sized hand sanitizer in their backpack, and remind them to be mindful of social distancing when possible. Providing your school-aged kids with these tips may go a long way to helping them see more learning time in the classroom.
