A record day in the heat this year across the Kansas City metro, and air conditioning repair crews have been busy answering calls and fixing A/C units.”All of us? 165 (calls), five or six (jobs) a piece so far,” said Josh, a serviceman at A.B. May. We tagged along with Josh to show us what it’s like responding to a call.”This one will take longer than most because it seems like we have a refrigerate leak,” he said on a job in Independence. Josh says after many A/C units have stayed dormant all winter and spring, firing them up to beat the heat can add strain to a unit and possibly cause problems.”They’re usually pretty shocked when it went out on the first hot day like it doesn’t happen that way every time,” he said. Jerry Thorpe in Independence says his A/C unit is fairly new, but it’s now on the fritz. “Slept uncomfortable last night, because I got a brick house and that brick holds the heat. I wasn’t expecting it, I got my mom here, she’s 82 years old and I thought I better call and have them come out and check it,” Thorpe said. Thorpe says once the A/C is back and running he’ll be grateful to feel that cool breeze. “Look at me now (whew!) I’m sweating. I’m gonna be relieved.” If your A/C does go out it’s important to check your circuit breaker and power, and keep fans nearby to stay cool until help arrives.
