Virgil Johnson stands in his backyard on Falls Street that's laid out with three rainwater and two storage barrels that pump a watery mist to cool and clean his old central air conditioner. Part of his Rain Barrel Mister system uses about 100 feet of garden hoses with links and valves. The rainwater can also be redirected for use on flowers, gardens and lawns. Johnson's says his device will cut utility bills because it allows air conditioners to cool a house faster using less power.
