This issue of the On The House Express will help you prepare for the start of summer.

June is National Safety Month. The National Home Safety Council reports that there are over 9,000,000 home-related injuries and 37,400 deaths each year. We hope that some of the tips included in this month's issue will help keep you and your family healthy and safe.

Plus, with temperatures rising, we've included some helpful home comfort solutions from the folks at Bryant that will lower your utility bill and make your home a haven to escape the summer heat! Finally, with summer comes swimming and pool safety and maintenance issues. Please take a moment to read the tips and information that we've prepared that will keep your pool water clear and prevent a tragic accident.

Stay cool... stay safe... and stay with us for more information in July!

Home Comfort Solutions from Bryant

SEER is short for seasonal energy efficiency ratio ó itís the measurement used to gauge the energy consumption of your cooling system ó similar to miles per gallon ratings for cars.
