Hot weather air conditioner failure brings business

Posted:
SIOUX CITY, Iowa (KTIV) -
While it's not fun to be working outside in conditions like these, the heat spells big business for those who work to keep you cool.

When air conditioners are working overtime, the number of service calls skyrockets for the folks at Kalin's Indoor Comfort.

The company says service calls keep them busy during the summer, but when the mercury rises to this level, that's when people often realize there are problems.

"Some of them that are maybe not working up to 100% full potential in the mild weather get by okay, but when we hit the peak weather conditions like we've had the last couple days, then you really notice the fact that your air conditioner isn't up to full capacity," Curt Brodsky, Service Manager at Kalin's said.

If you want to keep your air conditioning unit working properly, Brodsky says make sure your unit is clear of debris so it can breathe properly. Remember to not set the temperature too low inside your home. That way, you won't overwork the machine.
