For some people, the heat will just make them miserable.
But for others, it’s just about surviving.
The UK is facing its hottest summer on record and the UK Meteorological Office is warning of more scorching days in coming weeks.
For the UK, the temperatures in the last fortnight have risen from the previous record high of 39.8C (102F) on July 8, and are expected to climb further.
So what can you do?
If you’re feeling a bit chilly, head to the supermarket or cafe.
But don’t worry if you’re not feeling the heat.
And don’t forget to wear layers.
As the UK heats up, it will produce a much hotter air mass, which means it will be more difficult to breathe in.
Be warned though, there is a risk of a severe coronavirus outbreak if you don’t pack enough layers.
The heat is also going to be a problem for those who are planning to take their kids to the park.
In addition to the heat, the weather will also make outdoor electric heaters more expensive.
If the weather is really hot, then you can opt for a low-emission electric heater.
In the UK there are two models of these: the Model A, which is the most efficient and has a higher output, and the Model B, which has a smaller output but uses less electricity.
But if you are looking for a lower-emissions, more affordable, but also more energy-efficient alternative to an electric heater, then look no further.
There are more than 300,000 electric heat pumps around the country, and many are now fully equipped to meet demand.
Some manufacturers are also making electric heat lamps for the outdoor market.
Electric heaters can be bought online or at petrol stations, and can be used indoors or out.
