When you live in a warm climate with lots of heat and humidity, one of the most important appliances in your home becomes the AC.
Going without AC during the summer can be brutal and at times life threatening. The average summer temperature in Cocoa, FL is 92 degrees. That means there are some days when the temperatures are over 100 degrees and there are some days when it rains and the temperatures are a bit lower. Make no mistake, because even on a rainy day, it’s going to be hot and humid. Last summer, my wife and I had to replace our AC after a three day rainstorm. I;m sure the storm had nothing to do with the AC, but everything happened at the worst time. We had a tree down in the front yard and a crew of contractors were working hard to cut it up and remove the debris. During the middle of the second day of construction, the AC stopped working. I thought the company cut power to the house, but only the AC was affected. I called a local HVAC repair shop. Everyone in Cocoa, FL was booked for the day, but I found someone from Melbourne to handle the AC repair. The contractor gave me an estimate and hooked up a small window AC in the living room. The repairman couldn’t get any equipment to complete the job until the next day. It was a hot and humid night, but we slept in the living room with the window AC. The temperatures in that particular room were the coolest in the house.
