An apartment complex near Dallas Love Field will be without cool air on Tuesday after a fire damaged the building that houses their boiler room and air conditioning units.
An air conditioning repairman remained hospitalized Friday afternoon after getting burned while working on the roof of a Fort Worth food market.
Keeping healthy and safe in the North Texas heat can be challenging. But imagine trying to do it without air conditioning. More than 300 tenants at one North Texas apartment complex are facing that challenge.
The Dallas County Health and Human Services department is teamed up with the Phi Beta Siga Fraternity to help provide air conditioning units to people in need.
Dallas County Health and Human services are providing free-air conditioning units for residents throughout the summer.
The price to stay cool just went through the roof. But it’s not the energy bill, it’s the coolant used in air conditioning units: The cost of freon has tripled in the past six months.
A North Texas family has filed a federal lawsuit against the state, after a man died in a prison that didn’t have air conditioning. Larry Gene McCollum suffered heat stroke last summer, while serving time at the Hutchins State Jail in Dallas.
Tuesday marks the hottest day of the year so far and the earliest DFW Airport hit 106º since the dreaded, scorched days of 1980.
Tuesday will be another day of triple-digit heat for DFW, but some Dallas apartment complex residents have been forced to deal with the high temperatures without any relief.
On Monday, CBS 11 News found a number of parents who found creative ways to reduce their electricity consumption. Most simply took advantage of someone else’s electricity .
To help those who need relief during the extreme heat the Salvation Army has set up more than a dozen cooling stations across North Texas.
If the air conditioning unit at your home was manufactured before 2010 expect a common summer repair to cost up to triple the usual amount.
