Rohdie, the property is named after him. Robert “Bob”, built over 20,000 apartments in his lifetime and was always the first one to arrive at work, ready to take on the day. His passion and energy inspiring and infectious. Born and bred in New York, he made Florida a second home and spent most of his career developing A+ apartment communities. Always on the forefront of new and innovative design, The Robert will feature brand new one-, two- and three-bedroom apartments with amenities such as a resort-style zero-entry pool, high-end fitness center, arcade and game room and outdoor kitchen with grilling stations. It doesn’t just stop there. We believe that “without customers, we are nothing” and residents will be always be our top priority. We know the world has changed and the place that you call home has taken on a new meaning, now; more than ever. We hope you decide to make your home at The Robert.

Five Tips to Keep Your Apartment Cool in the Hot Summer Months

Five Tips to Keep Your Apartment Cool in the Hot Summer Months

Are you looking for ways to stay cool during these hot summer months in Florida?  Aside from laying by the pool or sitting underneath a fan, you will want to live in a cool and comfortable home.  When you are living in our apartments in Fort Myers, FL, you will want to keep your interior spaces cool despite the hot sun making its way through your windows.  These are a few tips to keep your apartment cool during the hot summer months.

Keep Your Blinds Closed

When the sun comes through your window, you should keep your blinds drawn to avoid raising the internal temperature.  By drawing your blinds, you can keep things dark, and this can regulate the air conditioning inside your apartment.  This simple trick can not only make your interior temperature more comfortable, but it can also save you money on cooling your place.

Create a Natural Flow

Find ways to optimize the air flow in your apartment by increasing the chances for air to flow from room-to-room.  By closing doors and obstructing the airflow throughout your apartment, you can cause certain rooms to be cooler than others.  When you choose to open those doors, your air conditioning may work overtime to try to make up for the temperature change.

Use Fans

To stay comfortable on the hottest days, you should use fans to keep the temperatures low.  Ceiling fans are often installed in apartments to provide more airflow.  You may want to get a few extra fans to put at your work desk or in your kitchen when you are feeling overwhelmed with heat during the warmest days in the summer.

Avoid Cooking

Even though it may be tempting to turn on the oven and cook a large meal, you should avoid cooking for long period of time inside your apartment.  Instead, consider using the BBQ area at your apartment complex to cook your food.  Also, do some meal prepping at night so that you have food to eat during the day.  When you keep your oven on for a longer period, it can raise the internal temperature of your apartment by a few degrees.

Open Your Windows at Night

Florida nights are much cooler than the days.  When cooler temperatures roll in, give your air conditioning a break and open your windows.  Let the breeze come in and cool down your apartment when it is dark outside.  This natural airflow is good for the air quality and also good for your AC unit and its function.

These are a few of the ways that you should keep your apartment cooler during the hot summer months.  When you live in our apartments in Fort Myers, FL, you want to be comfortable and enjoy being at home during the heat waves of Florida.  Contact us to hear about the amenities to keep you cool at our apartments today.
