Tips for Greater Tampa Bay Cold

At Ease with The Freeze

Greater Tampa Bay is going to get very cold this week, and it’s expected to stay cold throughout the rest of the week.  A cold front is coming in this weekend. And while Hillsborough — the county Super Heat & Air calls home — is expecting temperatures in the low 40s, some of our neighbors in our northern Greater Tampa Bay counties may experience temperatures in the upper 30s!

Buckle up and bundle up Tampa, it’s going to be super chilly! When those temperatures hit the 40s and possibly even 30s in Greater Tampa Bay, staying comfortable is important, but safety also has to be kept in mind.

Here are some things to keep in mind when the cold hits Greater Tampa Bay tonight:

Hypothermia is a B#!ch

There’s no delicate way to put this: Hypothermia sucks. Hypothermia is the condition of having an abnormally low body temperature and typically happens during very cold weather, but can hit you even at cool temperatures.

Greater Tampa Bay is no stranger to cold rain, and exposure to it can also cause hypothermia. If you’re going to be outdoors, bundle up and if it rains in the cold temperature, stay dry with an umbrella and a raincoat. Symptoms of hypothermia may include shivering, exhaustion, confusion, slurred speech, cold pale skin and bluish lips. If you notice any symptoms of hypothermia on somebody you know, take the person’s body temperature. If it’s below 95°, it could be hypothermia and you should seek emergency assistance immediately!

Frozen Flora

You worked hard to grow that beautiful garden of fruits and flowers: don’t let the cold kill them. Hard freeze temperatures can easily kill outdoor crops and plants. Before those freezing or near-freezing temperatures start nipping at and killing your plants, bring them indoors or cover them up if they need to stay in the ground.

Frosty Fauna

When it’s cold out there, bring your pets inside. Florida pets, like Floridians, are not used to the cold, so don’t leave Fluffy outside to freeze! Dogs and cats may have fur, but it doesn’t mean they will be fine if left outside. And like the people who love them, pets can suffer from hypothermia too, so keep your pets indoors and give them blankets to stay warm.

Popsicle Pipes

“It’s Florida, man. Pipes can’t freeze in Florida!” Well actually, they can! Exposed pipes can freeze and even burst. So when you get a ridiculously high water bill, slip on a puddle or have to bathe yourself with a bucket of water because your pipes busted, don’t say we didn’t warn you.

Heaters from Hell

Space heaters are notorious for being unsafe and for causing home and office fires. Before you use a space heater to keep your place warm, here are some Do’s and Don’ts to keep in mind:


  • Keep children and pets away from your space heaters
  • Make sure your space heater is on a level surface
  • Move flammable items at least 3 feet away from your space heaters
  • Ensure that your space heater has an automatic shutoff that works
  • Check for the UL mark, which indicates that it has been tested for safety
  • Turn your space heater off before you leave


  • Use the space heater to warm bedding or dry clothes.
  • Cook food or thaw pipes with your space heater
  • Place near drapes or anything else that can catch fire
  • Leave cords where people can trip over them.
  • Use an extension cord to power your space heater
  • Run your space heater overnight

Chilly Checklist

So Greater Tampa Bay, before those very chilly temperatures start to kick in, here are a few questions to ask yourselves:

  • How will you be keeping warm?
  • Do you have enough blankets?
  • Are your blankets thick enough?
  • Are you wearing enough layers of clothing?
  • Do you have sufficient winter clothes?
  • Does your home  have adequate  heating?
  • Is your home properly insulated?
  • Can you help others stay warm?

Stay warm Greater Tampa Bay! And don’t forget the “Heat” in Super Heat & Air! Call us anytime if you’re having trouble with your heater!
