The Air Conditioning Contractors of America-Arizona (ACCA-AZ) is giving back to the community to help needy Valley residents stay cool and safe this summer by offering selected Maricopa homeowners free home cooling system repair or replacement. The program recently helped Phoenix resident Carol Simpson, 86, who has not had a functioning air conditioner for 18 years. The group replaced a 55-year-old air conditioner on Simpson’s home with a custom-made unit. Project Cool Aid, a collaborative project of the ACCA-AZ and United Cerebral Palsy of Central Arizona (UCP), focuses on assisting individuals and families with disabilities who are in desperate need of assistance.
