About Cairo, IL - Happy to be your hometown Heating & Air Conditioning Contractor!

Cairo, Illinois is the county seat of Alexander County. Approximately 3,000 people call the community home, which is a major decline from the 15,000 residents that lived here in 1920. Cairo is known for being the southernmost city in the State of Illinois, and since it is the only city in the state surrounded by levees, it also has the lowest elevation. The Cairo Unified School District serves the area, with older students attending the Cairo Junior/Senior High School.

There are many things to see in do in Cairo. Fort Defiance State Park offers hiking, camping, and fishing, while the U.S. Custom house serves as one of the most prominent architectural sites in the region. The Magnolia Manor Mansion offers tours of this historic landmark, and visitors can continue to learn about the area with a trip to the Cairo Public Library. Visitors and residents alike enjoy relaxing with a good meal in Cairo, as popular restaurants include Nu Diner, Shemwell’s Barbecue, and Mark’s BBQ, among others.

Weather conditions in Cairo vary with the changing seasons. The spring and summer months are hot, humid, and wet. Flooding is possible, and the entire city was evacuated during the Mississippi River floods of 2011. Average highs reach into the upper 80s, although temperatures into the 90s are also common. To stay cool, residents need the right climate controls, and a central air conditioner is a wise investment.

Cairo area residents usually enjoy the spring and fall months, which tend to be cooler with less humidity. The autumn season is a good time to get home furnace systems ready for the winter, as temperatures can quickly plummet. In January, average daily highs reach the low-30s, but overnight lows can fall below freezing. The right furnace can keep interior conditions comfortable while ensuring your most valuable investment – your home – stays safe.
