SWACCA Completes Charity Project in Record Time

The Southwest Florida Military Museum and Foundation in Cape Coral were in dire need of a new HVAC system and additional repair. Within two weeks of the Southwest Florida Air Conditioning Contractors Association (SWACCA) finding out about the Museum’s circumstances, new equipment was installed and repair/maintenance completed. All at no cost to the Museum.

Veterans served by the Museum can now meet in comfort.

The SWACCA Board, led by President Tim Dupre, Conditioned Air, pulled together contractors and suppliers to donate time and equipment. Board member Jim Roberts with TWC took on the challenge to manage the project. On September 25, it all came together and up went the new equipment while others assisted with repair and maintenance of existing units.

The following contractors and suppliers generously donated to the project: Ellsworth Heating and Cooling – a 3 ton package unit and labor for installation; Speedy Air Conditioning and Eagle Crane – crane lift; TWC Services and Certified Refrigerant Services – refrigerant and other required materials; Tropic Supply/Copeland – compressor; Conditioned Air, A&A Xtreme Air, TriCounty Apprenticeship Program – labor; Johnson’s Air Conditioning – materials.

The SWACCA Board has plans to continue supporting the Veterans Museum by providing on-going maintenance. They want to ensure the Veterans who are served by the Foundation have a facility where they can meet in comfort, as well as the museum displays are preserved.
