Default A/C in Golf Cart

We tried them all including Crown. Only one works well and that is the Atomic Kool Kart. Effective even on a 96 degree day with high humidity. They are very expensive but to us worth it. Jim H

It’s amazing how much it helps. My body apparently just doesn’t adjust very well. That overhead fan in the cart Shown in a previous post is incredible though. Also, wet A towel and put it in the cooler to help when it’s in the 90’s. Just pull the towel out and wrap around your neck, and when it warms up stick it back in the cooler for a little bit. And get that overhead fan. Btw we did get a cart with a sleekline cab. Love it to block rain and wind.
I absolutely love the idea of turning the thermostat up a couple of degrees. We moved to Florida 46 years ago and loved being outside. We were always in the pool or at the beach but we can no longer tolerate the heat. I think we became too acclimated to air conditioning, which our northern friends can’t understand. Thanks for the suggestion!

I came to FL for the heat. It's the humidity that is oppressive at times. We keep AC as high as possible and still de-humidify. Otoh, when temps drop to 60 I want the heat on. I get enough natural air flow in a golf cart if I don't have to sit in the sun for long.

Here's an even better idea, we keep our air on 84 during the day and 83 at night. Anything lower it's too cold for us. Of course I grew up in Florida and didn't have A/C in the home or never in school all the way through 12th grade.

That must seem like a real novelty, a government building, school, office in Florida with no A/C, the windows were always open. St. Petersburg High School is the oldest in Florida, built in 1926 and is still in operation without A/C. We had two big courtyards inside the walls and the classrooms all wrapped around and the hallways were open to the courtyards.

Snowbirding gets old after a while. All that packing and unpacking ... always wanting something that is at the other place ... issues with plumbing/HVAC/etc always happening at the house where you are not currently staying ... We did it for several years and I don't miss it! YMMV.

After a couple of summers, you MAY get your wish.

We have the Curtis Cab for quick and easy opening and closing of our cart in all weather conditions. We also have the breeze easy fan and use it constantly on hot, muggy days while golfing. Together, they’re a perfect solution. You’re welcome.😎

We love our Atomic Electric Car. Air conditioner for hot days, heater for cold ones. No wet canvas on rainy days. Electric windows with real glass and front windshield wiper. No problems on the golf course. Gets 60 miles on a charge.

Default Golf Cart A/C

I don’t have 1. A couple of my friends do. They love them and actually bought them for what they were intended for.
What a concept!!
My 1 friend has an Atomic Cart with A/C.
Hope this helps😎😎

, I’ve been walking outside for at least an hour after gym for the 21 yearsI’ve been retired , at 81 I stay acclimated so I can enjoy Florida . Maybe you don’t have to do what I do but to many people keep there homes to cold . I’ve lived all over the he world you would be surprised how well the human body responds. I also don’t drink anything cold outside , even at the beach just plain whatever the temperature is water.and I ‘m out most nights for dinner or visiting I have never even when I lived on beach in Miami gone into a restaurant or a party even a barbecue in shorts , I’m either in jeans or slacks current fashions only . The heat shouldn’t turn people into slobs

I agree, if I set mind lower than 76 I have hard time breathing due to fluid build up in my lungs or nasal passages. I find 77 is right temp for me, but during the day I do run the ceiling fans.
