As promised, today’s post is about what you can do about that hot, hot Colorado sun. Sure, it’s the end of August and the worst is probably behind us this year. But there is sure to be another hot summer in 2019, and then another one in 2020 — there’s no stopping it, there’s no running from it. All you can do is deal with the heat in one way or another.

We don’t have it bad at all here in Colorado, not by any stretch of the imagination. So don’t misunderstand us when we talk about Colorado weather. All in all, we have four seasons, beautiful mountains, amazing sunsets, and plenty more to be grateful for. Going a few hundred miles in pretty much any direction will quickly inform you about how great we have it here in Loveland, Fort Collins, and pretty much everywhere up and down the Northern Colorado Front Range.

Other Ways To Beat The Heat!

There are alternatives that don’t involve getting an AC unit installed in your Loveland home, and some of them are quite pleasant to experience. Getting to the beach or hitting a hiking trail in the mountains is sure to cool you off, if only for a while. So we hope you enjoy these hiking suggestions you’ll find below, but remember that we offer affordable HVAC installation in Loveland and beyond if and when you need it!

  • Horsetooth Falls – This trail is only 1.7 miles in one-way distance, and ends with a 25-foot waterfall that is fed by Spring Creek. You can even play in the pool below if it’s a scorcher of a day! This trail isn’t too far of a drive either, as its only 6.5 miles to the Horsetooth Mountain Open Space parking lot on the western side of Horsetooth Reservoir. Keep in mind this journey will ding you $6 per person, per day.
  • Twin Sisters Peak – A bit more of a challenge, this hike will take you just south of Estes Park. With close to 2,500 feet of altitude change and 7.5 miles of one-way trail, you’ll be able to cool off at the journey’s end — a panoramic view that allows you to see the plains to the east and Longs Peak to the west. This is a great hike no matter the time of year!

That’s all we have time for in today’s post, but watch this space for more tips about the area (and maybe a few about plumbing and HVAC-related topics as well). Contact Bears PHC, your Loveland plumber, for same day service.
