Air conditioning technicians working extra hard to keep homes cool

Air conditioning experts say they've been busy repairing a number of A/C units due to the rising temperatures.

Officials at SafeAire Heating and Cooling said as it gets hotter outside air conditioners tend to break down the more they run.

They say the units are designed to maintain the home temperature at 72 degrees when it's 95 degrees outside.

Temperatures higher than 95 degrees tend to put more strain on the units causing them to break down.

" Keep your air filter changed. During the summer, the more it's running of course the more you need to change the air filter. Also keep the blinds and drapes closed in the house when it gets really hot that'll help out with keeping the temperature down in the house. Minimize going in and out of the house," said Matt Lane SafeAire Director of Sales and Services.

Lane recommends getting your A/C units serviced twice a year.
