EL PASO, TX (KTSM) — Plenty of King's Aire employees keeping busy this week installing air conditioning units in several El Paso homes.
One homeowner who spoke with NewsChannel 9 said it was crucial to have air conditioning during the summer months, but advised to 'be smart about it' and consider switching from an evaporative cooler to refrigerated air.
"The evaporative cooler does use a lot of water that's why we are switching to this which are energy efficient, it's refrigerated air," said Jorge Acevedo-Giervolimi. "It uses hardly, well doesn't use any water period."
El Paso Water Utilities is asking El Pasoans to conserve water as a drought continues.
