Ultimate Homes & Cooling to honor veteran or first responder with a new AC unit

Rodney Siedow is a military veteran who wants to give back to not only the community, but also to fellow veterans.

He is doing so by holding a local hero contest open to all veterans and first responders in Lee and Charlotte counties, with the winner getting a free Rheem 16 SEER air conditioning unit with installation.

Ultimate Homes & Cooling is holding this contest from now until Memorial Day weekend. Any non-veteran or non-first responder need not apply, as the contest is a way to say "Thank You" to those who have put their lives in the line.

Siedow, who has worked in air conditioning for 15 years for other companies, said he started the company after becoming dissatisfied by how local AC businesses did business. He opened his own place two years ago and started offering discounts for AC service for veterans and first responders.

Such a prize isn't cheap, an AC unit like this could run between $5,000 and $8,000, depending on the size of the house.

"Everybody seems to need an air conditioner and $8,000 isn't pocket change. We want to give back and get the word out we're doing this," Siedow said.

The company has sent notices to local veteran organizations such as the American Legions, as well as fire and police stations to get the word out.

To qualify, Like and Share the company Facebook page at, comment to the post with your branch and dates of service. If available, please add a picture of you in uniform.

The winner will be asked to provide proof of military or police and fire service. Once confirmed, the homeowner will be awarded a certificate to be redeemed within five years for a new system in the event the winner is not in need of a new system immediately.

For more information, go to the company Web page at or call (941) 893-8125.
