The extreme heat is causing home and car air conditioners to fail all over town. Roth Heating and Air is so busy, its techs are working 12 hour days to keep up.

Experts say many air conditioners are failing in the 100 degree temperatures because the units are dirty and haven't been maintained. Roth says if you get a service check every spring it could save you from having to call for repairs when the temperatures soar.

Westlink Auto is seeing a lot of cars with broken air conditioners. Owner Don Hines says to watch your temperature gauge especially if you are sitting in traffic. He says if your car overheats, shut off your a/c right away and get the car to a shop.
