Florida heat can't be beat — 12-month no-interest financing

While some may say to get out of the kitchen, Floridians in Central Florida often feel that air-conditioning is the most effective solution to handling the heat. In July of 2012, retail electricity sales within the Sunshine State were ranked an unsurprising second highest in the nation, following only the varying levels of heat and humidity found in none other than the Lone Star State of Texas. Largely due to the high air-conditioning usage throughout the hot summer months and common use of home heating during cooler winter months, Florida’s residential sector is no stranger to increasing energy costs. Approximately 90 percent of the energy consumed by Florida’s households is through electricity costing each home almost $2,000 per year. That’s more than 40 percent over the national average cost of residential electricity.

In our efforts to beat the Central Florida heat and stay cool in the summer months, Floridians have ranked among the highest in the country in per capita residential electricity demands due to the widely perceived need and use of home air-conditioning. Unfortunately, the increased use is always accompanied by an increased cost, and as the years grow warmer, so do tempers in regards to paying these rapidly increasing power bills.

We’ve all seen “the list” before. Whether you receive one in the mail from your utilities provider or your parents snuck one into your bags before you left for college—it’s the list of ways you can help reduce energy costs at home, the list of products to buy that keep power costs down, the list of alternative methods to employ to minimize your energy consumption. For the most part, we listen. We turn off the lights when we leave the room. We keep the refrigerator door closed when we’re done cooling off in the crisper. But sometimes, it’s just hot. Too hot! And the only seemingly effective tool is that cool, calm and collected heat-crusher known affectionately by most as the A/C.

But what if you could keep your head cool in your home without breaking the bank on air-conditioned space?
