One of the latest victims of surge protector fires was a mobile home in Lafayette, LA. Photos from the scene depicted the entire front section of the home destroyed by the fire, large parts of its steel wall melted and charred. Fortunately, the occupants were out when the fire occurred. No other casualties were reported.
Picture yourself having been cooped up in slightly colder conditions during the winter months. The second quarter is upon you, but as Francesca Clarke of DIY Life explains:
More homes in the U.S. are going “green,” going pro-environment with energy-efficient home appliances and practices. Many Fort Myers’ air conditioning repair companies continue to urge homes to be practical about energy savings in their HVAC system. One of these ways is installing an energy recovery ventilator like the new Bryant Legacy ERV. Continue reading
Not many people in Fort Myers are aware that keeping their HVAC systems in good condition contributes to increased indoor comfort and cost savings, as well as productivity and the quality of life. Proper installation along with regular maintenance is crucial to sustain a safe and energy-efficient household or business establishment. Certified Fort Myers AC repair, maintenance, and installation contractors can help in this regard.
Temperatures are dropping throughout the country as most states begin to experience winter, the operative word being most. According to meteorologists from The Weather Channel, temperatures in Southern Florida look nothing like the recorded winter temperatures in other states:
Over the past couple of weeks, as Winter Storms Cleon and Dion bore down, South Florida temperatures were as much as 100 degrees warmer than the coldest spots in the nation.
Predictably, residents shivering in northern towns began to turn their eyes toward the red on the map, and as the 80-degree highs were forced further south, Florida stood strong in frustrating the rest of the country to no end.
“Between now and this weekend, there will be some occasional cooldowns in North Florida with highs plunging into the frigid 60s, but South Florida should stay in the upper 70s and 80s for at least the next seven days,” he said.
According to weather experts, Southern Florida winters are typically very warm with an average temperature of 76.1°F, without factoring in the humidity. As such, seeing people seeking the comfort of air conditioning in Fort Myers is not an odd sight even during the supposed winter season.
Since Southern Florida does not experience the stereotypical winter season, people that have recently moved to Fort Myers may be surprised by the sudden need for an air conditioning unit despite the time of year. If you are looking to purchase a new air conditioning unit, be sure to keep the following tips in mind:
The Right Size
Fort Myers air conditioning contractors, such as Custom Cooling and Heating, Inc., often tell homeowners that size isn’t everything when it comes to air conditioning units. Many homeowners in hot areas tend to overdo the size of the unit, resulting in higher energy bills and an inefficient air conditioning system.
The SEER rating advertises an air conditioning unit’s energy efficiency. The SEER rating ranges from 13 to 21, with a higher number denoting a higher efficiency. Although you do not necessarily have to choose an air conditioner with the highest number, selecting an energy-efficient unit can easily lower your energy bills. This advantage is especially important since you will be using the unit year-round.

Fort Myers is home to many tennis training grounds, attracting enthusiasts of the sport to the city to play various matches. Players find out soon enough there’s a bigger challenge on the court than their opponents’ massive ground stroke: Heat. If little prepared for it, a depleted player could easily send himself off to an emergency room from a bad case of dehydration or heat stroke.
The U.S. weather now always seem to have surprises up its sleeve. In Florida, the summer of 2013 was the wettest on record, and now that the country is closing in on winter, should Florida locals be worried? Caleb D. Regan of Grit.com offers his thoughts on the predictions from Old Farmer’s Almanac: Continue reading
