HARRISON, Texas (AP) Air conditioning wholesaler Integrity Air Conditioning has begun offering a higher-end product in Houston because the city’s air conditioning standards are changing.
The Houston Independent Contractors Association has said air conditioning is a quality issue and not a safety issue.
Integrity says its new air conditioning products will provide a better air conditioning experience.
Aldi, a chain of fast-food restaurants, said it will begin offering its air conditioning options in Houston.
Hospitals in Houston are using less air conditioning because of the climate change, which has left the city without air conditioning for most of the year.
In addition, the city has been forced to replace much of its cooling systems, including a portion of its roof.
Hospital administrators have said they want to make sure the city gets the air conditioning it needs and they have been trying to reduce their reliance on outside contractors.
