Obviously it depends how extreme the temperatures are where you live, but in general when dogs seriously overheat, they are at risk of a stroke and when they get dangerously cold, they are at risk of hypothermia and frostbite.

What should I do in order to make sure my dog house stays cool in the summer?


In order to keep your dog's house cool during hot summer days, consider to do the following:
  • Place the dog house in the shade so it doesn't get too hot from the sun.
  • Make sure that the house is ventilated so warm air can come out.
  • If it gets really hot inside the house, you should put a fan to cool the house down or buy a small air conditioning unit made for dog houses.
  • Place a cooling mat on the ground of the house. This will help the dog to cool down during the hot summer days.

Where can I get an air conditioner for my dog house?


You can buy portable units for dog houses, which is really sensible as that way you can keep using it even if you switch to a new dog house. Here's a link to a site that specializes in air conditioning units to keep your dog cool and healthy. http://www.climaterightair.com/outdoor-pet-house-heating-and-air-conditioning

Do I need to put air conditioning in my dog house? It seems kind of extravagant.


It depends where you live, but if you live in a hot climate and suffer from the heat yourself (and use air con to cool yourself down), the chances are that your dog is suffering too. The dog house provides some shade but it doesn't help humidity and really hot temperatures.

Delonghi pacl90. Lost manual, don't know what setting is best for cooling my house. I have a small 850 sq ft place. Should 1 side be blowing out hot air, and the other side have cool air?


Unfortunately, I don't think you're going to be able to find a setting to best cool your house. The model that you have, is a room air conditioner that only generates 10,000 BTU's and is only rated for up to 400 square feet. That's about half the square footage of your house. It simply will not cool your entire house.

To make the most of what you have, place the unit in a room where you spend the most time. Close the door to that room and only air condition it. To keep the other areas a little more comfortable, close the drapes or blinds during the hottest periods of the day. If you have a ceiling fan in that area of the house, run it a fast as you can comfortably stand, in a clockwise rotation. Generating a wind chill in the area that's not air conditioned will help make it more tolerable.

I hope I was of help to you. Thanks for choosing fixture.

My A/C blowing air, but it is not cool. It has started freezing up. We just replaced the air filters and since then it is freezing up. We even gently cleaned the a/c coils before replacing the filters. ...


Hello, sounds like it is either a low charge or lack of airflow, what type of filter are you using? sometimes those filters that claim to be super effecient will actually cut down on your airflow and cause the ac to freeze up.
