Welcome to the July issue of On The House Express. The theme to this month's newsletter is dedicated to helping you maintain manageable energy costs. While staying cool during the summer can be a daunting (and expensive) task, we will provide you with some ways on how to improve your comfort without having to spend an arm and a leg.

Plus, we have some great tips on outdoor kitchens, misting systems and how to check your swimming pool.

And as always, we have some great recipes from our buddy Dom DeLuise.

Stay cool inside; don't get too much sun outside; and may your summer maintenance tasks and utility bills be little ones.

  Morris and James Carey
