(WIAT) — As the temperatures hit the 90s, air conditioning companies find their business increasing.
Many people are calling for help as they return from work to find their homes are much warmer than they should be.
On Wednesday, CBS42 caught up with a representative from Aux Mechanical.
Technicians there are working from 6 a.m. to 12 a.m. with 30-50 new calls a day.
Most of the problems they are dealing with could have been avoided with proper preventative maintenance.
Most heating and air conditioning programs will offer an annual maintenance agreement which includes two visits per year.
Customers who sign an agreement will normally get priority when something goes wrong.
