What is the lowest temperature the AC can be set at?
Our Central Air Conditioning Systems are regulated for both heating and cooling to ensure consistent and safe operation of the unit during your stay. Our AC thermostats can be set to cool at a minimum of 72 degrees during the Summer, and it can be set to heat the unit up to 78 degrees during Winter months. These parameters are based on manufacturer and AC Service Technician recommendations, and they ensure that you will have the best possible stay with us, without interruptions. In Southwest Florida, our temperatures can reach into the high 90’s, with humidity in the 80%-90% ranges. When this occurs, air conditioning systems are pushed to the max. These AC systems are only designed to cool a room to 20 degrees below the ambient outside temperature. So, if it is 95 degrees outside, the AC system will only be able to cool the home or unit to 75 degrees respectively. AC systems do not blow colder air when they are set below their capable cooling parameters, they only blow more frequently for longer time periods. If the outside temperature maintains a constant 95+ degrees, the unit will not be able to keep up if they are set below 72 degrees. Setting the temperature below this can cause increased condensation build up, prolonged periods of operation with minimum down time between coolings, and the unit will incur damage that could cause it to cease operating. Not everyone is familiar with this situation, or the recommendation for proper HVAC use in Southwest Florida, so we have installed Smart Thermostats that help to ensure your room is a cool 72 degrees or higher depending on your preference, and that it stays that way during your entire stay. While some guests request temperatures of 66-68 degrees, that is just not possible here in Southwest Florida without causing significant damage to the property you are renting. This damage may not surface during your stay, but it might during the next guests stay. In order to ensure the best experience for everyone, we have installed these safe guards. We appreciate your understanding and participation to protect our property, our home owner’s property, and our guest experience.
Are your Pools Heated?
Our rental homes with heated pools offer this service of pool heat, as a courtesy to our guests at no additional charge. All of our pools, spas, and equipment are closely monitored by the home’s pool company for your safety and enjoyment, and we kindly ask that the controls, valves, pumps, heaters, and system not be tampered with because doing so could result in damage that you may be liable for. These system components should only be evaluated or adjusted by an SKLRP employee or pool company technician. All pools have listed instructions for operation of the pool remote, please follow these to ensure safe use and operation, and if you have any questions please call the pool company phone number listed on the instructions sheet, or call SKLRP during normal business hours. Our winter months are considered to be from November through April. During these months we do our best to ensure that the pools are heated to a temperature of 82 degrees. However, some circumstances are out of our control, and even in Southwest Florida we do occasionally get cold spells that can send the temperatures down into the 30’s for a few nights in a row. This will cause the pool water temperature to drop into the 60’s or 70’s and the pool pump will automatically shut down if the outside temperature gets too cold and it cannot maintain the selected temperature. This is a safety feature. The pump will begin operating again as temperatures rise and it will begin re-heating of the pool back to 82 degrees, which may take several days depending on the severity of the cold front. Unfortunately, these situations are beyond our control. Please be aware that SKLRP cannot issue refunds during your stay based on acts of God. Other issues such as: equipment malfunction, temporary loss of use of equipment or amenities due to maintenance purposes, severe weather conditions, or other circumstances do happen for time to time without warning. However, please know that in these rare events involving pool equipment malfunction during your stay, SKLRP will do everything in our power to expedite repairs as quickly as possible as we always want you to enjoy your heated pool and the Florida sunshine as much as possible! SKLRP thanks you in advance for your understanding on this issue.
