Realty Reality: Crucial Tips for Moving to a Dry Climate

Written by Posted On Tuesday, 22 August 2017 19:23

There’s a lot to love about living in dry climates: the heat is more bearable and the scenery is beautiful. However, the adjustment isn’t always easy. Use these simple tips to make your move to a dry climate as comfortable and seamless as possible.

Stay Hydrated

This point may seem obvious, but it’s easy to neglect your body when you’re not used to consuming higher amounts of water each day. Regardless of whether it’s hot or cold in your new city when you move, make sure to consume plenty of liquids each day. This can be water, tea, juice or other fluids, but most of it should be plain water.

Your body isn’t the only part of you that will be screaming for hydration in a dry climate. You’ll also need to spend more time moisturizing your skin, lips and hair. If you have any pets, make sure they have access to plenty of water as well.

Invest in a Great Air Conditioner

Many dry climates would be nearly uninhabitable without air conditioning — or, at least, most people would simply not be willing to stay. To make your lifestyle as comfortable as possible, you’ll want to invest in a great air conditioning system. However, it’s not always quite that simple.

When it gets hot, you’ll be running your air conditioner frequently. This can result in prohibitively high energy bills if you’re cooling a large home. To prepare, do your research and invest in an energy-efficient system from a reputable company, like Custom Comfort.

Pamper Your Plants

Some people assume that they do not need to water desert or dry-climate plants. This is far from the truth. It’s smart to choose plants for landscaping that don’t require a lot of water, but even common dry-weather plants like cactuses and succulents need some amount of water. When the rain is insufficient, you’ll need an efficient watering system to keep your plants happy. If you want to maintain the type of plants that you’d have in a more temperate or humid climate, it’s possible, but prepare for a lot of work.

Consider a Humidifier

Dryness can have a negative effect on your sinuses. It makes it difficult to breathe properly, because your body is creating extra mucus to compensate for the lack of moisture in the air. The result is a persistently stuffy nose. Dry air also wreaks havoc on your skin and lips, and it allows viruses to breed more prolifically. Luckily, the solution is simple. Invest in a humidifier, either for your whole home or just for the rooms where people sleep.

Moving to a dry climate isn’t difficult as long as you have the proper tools. Now that you’re mentally prepared for moving to a dry climate, it’s time to put these tips into action. By the time you move, you’ll be able to enjoy your new home in peace.
