Early Blast Of Heat Has A/C Repair Crews Working Overtime

Dangerous heat has arrived in the Bluegrass and it has air conditioner repairmen working overtime.
We topped out at 91 degrees in Lexington on Friday and it’s expected to be even hotter this weekend.
Many homeowners are kicking their air conditioners on full blast for the first time this summer and many are not able to handle the hike.
Heating and air conditioning companies tell us they’ve received hundreds of calls the last couple of days.
Experts recommend changing the filter on your heating and air conditioning unit every three months and having it serviced twice a year during the spring and fall.
If you have to wait for your air conditioner to be repaired or if you don’t have air conditioning, officials with the Lexington-Fayette County Health Department suggest heading to an air-conditioned place like the mall or a public library.
