Air conditioner units work harder as temperatures soar

ALBANY, GA (WALB) - This week's heat will affect more than just people and pets. Your air conditioners will have to work a lot harder as temperatures soar close to 100.

Most units are made to work in temperatures up to 95 degrees. Safeair will have more people on duty to fix broken air conditioner units, but there are things you can do to prevent a problem.

"To help prepare for extreme temperatures it's best to have your systems tuned up. Hopefully everyone has had their system tuned up this summer some time. Make sure your filters are changed," said Safeair Director of Services Matt Lane.

Lane also says you don't want to set your thermostat too low... Especially during a heat wave. Water Gas and Light recommends you keep your thermostat at 78.
