The county recently spent about $15,000 to study options to get air conditioning into the pet section of the building!

From the look-see of Channel 9 news,

The pet section already has duck work

into their part of the building

and if not used,

why on earth will it cost

another $1.5 to $3 million

for a new air condition system

just for that part of the building?

It only cost about 1/4 that much

to condition a complete building!

Do you need a quick check just off the internet?

Typical costs:
Adding central air conditioning to an existing forced-air heating system in a 2,000-square-foot house averages $3,500-$4,000, and can be done by two technicians in 2-3 days, with little or no change to the existing ducting; if ducts must be added, the work time doubles, as does the cost to $7,000-$8,000 or more, according to[1] .

Estimates for a older, smaller house of 800-1,000 square feet with no existing duct work run $2,100-$6,000, or as high as $10,000 or more, depending on the type and quality of equipment installed, the amount of space available for installing ducts and vents, and the local economy.

      Well it is more like pure love and then appreciation.
      I don’t know where you live but right now in central Florida it is 92 degrees and climbing and 59 % humidity and also climbing.


      • Here in Ohio it has been about 90 all week with humidity of over 60%, but we all survive. I’ve basically lived my whole life without AC as it wasn’t even available when growing up. The old house I rent in the country doesn’t have it, but I do have a breeze and fans. Life is wonderful even with the heat.

        It is good for your health and pocketbook to not use A/C when possible.
        While living up in Connecticut the weather was about the same as yours.
        While living in Florida, a tropical swamp, 60% and in the 90’s would feel like a good day.
        An exhaust fan in the morning brings in the fresh air however; it also brings in the humidity!
