A Cool Garage Space

26 Jan air conditioner

Living in Florida, garage space is hot and stuffy most of the time.  Many people have more garage then is needed or do not utilize that space to its full capacity because of the sweltering heat.  How many of you could use some extra work space? Maybe you have a hobby or make crafts but have never thought about turning your garage into an area where you can have your own space to work on projects and create things.

Here are some other creative ways people can use a garage space:

  • Yoga area
  • Home gym
  • Office space
  • Sewing space
  • Game room
  • Man cave/woman cave
  • Art studio
  • Build a climbing wall
  • Play area

As you can see there are many ways a garage can be used. So, what about the sweltering heat? RDS has a handy air conditioning unit that we can install in your garage to keep it cool all year long. You will be the envy of your friends when they see your cool garage space and how creative you have been to fix it up and how comfortable it is with your new a/c unit.

Call RDS Air Conditioning and take the first step in having an a/c unit installed in your garage so that you can create your ultimate garage space. By the way, this unit is more affordable then you may think.




Lightening strikes and your A/C unit, are you prepared?

8 Jan lightening strike

Lightening strikes

Lightening is a huge electrostatic discharge due to unbalanced electric charge in the air. At the peak of a regular thunderstorm, three or more strikes per minute can be produced and a cloud to ground lightening strike can be up to three miles long.

Electrical appliances inside and outside your home can be damaged by lightening. Have you considered how vulnerable your outside central air conditioning unit is to lightening? Florida has many storms especially in the summer when most part time residents have gone home. The inside of your a/c unit can be severely damaged if hit by lightening or sustains a power surge.

Your homeowner’s insurance policy may cover some of the parts that need to be replaced but sometimes the condenser, fan or motor will stop working months later after the initial lightening strike and this may not be covered. A way to protect your a/c unit when you are home or out of town is by having a storm protector professionally installed. A storm or surge protector on your air conditioning unit will greatly lower the risk of damage from a storm.

RDS is having a special until 2/28/13 on installing a lightening/storm protector on your a/c unit. This special includes a lightening/surge protector, hard start kit and system inspection all for only $149. Avoid a/c problems and have piece of mind during a storm when you are in Florida or away with this protection for your air conditioning unit.

Don’t settle for less, use RDS!
