Summer heat can be taxing in the best of times, but trying to keep cool during peak hours and keep your utility bill low can be very difficult. The good news is that many communities offer cooling centers where you can escape the heat (and some energy expenses). Enjoy air conditioning and sometimes extras, like games and refreshments, for free. To find a cooling center near you, see the resources below for your county.
