Keeping Cool and Saving Money – English and Spanish

Keeping Cool in Summer Months / Manteniéndose cómoda mente fresco(a) – Example: Your air conditioner not only cools the air, it acts as a dehumidifier by taking moisture out of the air. Excess moisture makes us uncomfortable and can lead to mold growth. Before cooling season begins, make certain your unit is in good working condition. If at all possible, have your unit inspected each year by a qualified technician and perform regular maintenance to ensure that your unit keeps working effectively and efficiently.
