Recently, North Carolina has been reaching record-breaking high temperatures, and it’s not even the official start of summer yet! With the scorching temperatures and heavy humidity, you barely have to step outside before you’re covered in sweat. Many of us seek refuge in the air-conditioned indoors of our home or our car. So, if you happen to get locked out in this heat, it can be a real inconvenience.

If you find yourself locked out of your home or your car, remain calm and call a locksmith right away. At A-1 Lock Safe, we offer 24/7 emergency locksmith services. So, no matter what time of day or night you lock yourself out, we can help.

While you wait for the locksmith to arrive, try to get out of the heat. If you’re home, head to a neighbors to cool down or wait in your car with the air on. If you’re locked out of your car, try to find some shade to keep cool.

If you have a child or pet locked in the car on a hot day, you probably know how hot the inside of your car can get. If the car is running with the air conditioning on, you will be fine. However, if the car is off and the windows are up, you will want to get everyone out of the car before it gets too hot. In order to do so, you can break a window to gain access to your car. Break the window farthest from any passengers and be sure to wrap your hand to prevent any injuries. Remember, this is something you only do in the case of an emergency.

If you find yourself locked out of the cool air conditioning on a hot day, give the locksmiths at A-1 Lock and Safe in Chapel Hill, NC a call.
