Air-conditioned soccer stadium in Las Vegas

Las Vegas is on the edge of obtaining a major league soccer team. Justin Findlay is trying his hardest to bring soccer to Las Vegas. He stated, “The best sport in the world is available.

Findlay met with MLS Deputy Commission Mark Abbott. The initial problem of obtaining a soccer team is the constructing a stadium that can withstand the Vegas heat. This is no longer the problem. Abbott met with Las Vegas Mayor Carolyn Goodman to take a look at the downtown area. On July 18, an artist’s renderings of the proposed stadiums were released. The stadium will hold 24,000 fans. There will be a vinyl retractable roof and air conditioning vents every three rows in the stands. Every seat will be shaded. Even on the hottest days in the Vegas summer, it will feel like the temperature is in the low 80s for soccer players and fans. The proposed stadium would be built in Symphony Park. During game days, the roof will be kept closed to keep the air cool inside. The surface of the field will be turf, and the sides of the stadium will be open. It will look similar to Centre Court at Wimbledon. Plans won’t be finalized until after Aug. 20. The stadium has to be approved by the Las Vegas City Council. The estimated funding for the project is between $150 million and $200 million. The official cost has...

Air conditioners tend to break at the start of summer

Summer is here and the heat is hitting us hard. It always seems to sneak up out of nowhere in Las Vegas. One day, the weather is in the low 80s with a nice breeze. All of a sudden, the sun smacks you in the face. What does this mean for your air conditioner? Well, you haven’t used it for a few months. Now you are blasting your air conditioner 24 hours a day.

The electrical components may have gotten a little rusty during the months off. In other cities it is not as bad for the air conditioners. Most cities don’t exceed double digits.

This is why many people will have to replace their air conditioners at the beginning of summer. There isn’t much to do to prevent it from occurring. At the start of summer...
