Albany-- This may be the worst time of year for your air conditioner to be on the fritz so technicians are braving the heat to keep you cool.

Repairmen with Pollock Heating and Cooling have been backed up with 15 to 20 calls a day. On days like today with a heat advisory in place, that number can double. Many problems are due to water leaks and drainage stops because air conditioners are working overtime.

"When the heat index soars, we naturally get real busy. When the humidity levels rise, the air-conditioners go up under a strain," says technician Ricky Robinson.

To prevent your AC from breaking down you should get an annual check-up and change your filter regularly.
