Captiva History


  Captiva History Gallery Grand Opening

On March 27, 2014 the new Captiva History Gallery will be open to visitors. The new
exhibit room illustrates Captiva's unique, diverse history. It is located in the Captiva
Community Center on Chapin Lane in Captiva and can be accessed through the
Captiva Memorial Library. Its other neighbors include Chapel-By-The-Sea, and the
Captiva Cemetery. The cleverly conceived and created History Gallery takes on the

Tips to Save Energy and Add Value

When it comes to energy efficiency, look for smart features and expertise to help you save energy and money and add value to your home.

1. Begin with a Right-Sized Home.

If the home you buy is simply too large for you or your family’s needs or plans, you stand a good chance of wasting energy through excessive heating and cooling costs. If it’s too small, you’ll feel cramped and uncomfortable. It’s a big investment, so seek balance and buy it “right” from the outset. 

2. Purchase Energy Star Appliances Such as Your TV, Dishwasher, Washer and Dryer, and Microwave.

And especially the refrigerator, as it alone contributes about 10 percent of the energy use in a home. Also, unplug electronics not in use or turn off power strips to avoid phantom charges. 

3. Install Efficient Lighting Such as Compact Flourescent (CLF) or LED Bulbs in Every Fixture.
