STURGEON - Over this past weekend temperatures reached a high of 92 degrees, but heat indexes were up in the 100's. The intense heat causes air conditioners to work harder and often break down, causing a need for more repairs. 

Accurate Heating and Cooling Company repairman Dave Wallens said that calls have been flooding the phone lines to fix air conditioning systems.  

"Our service guys are running about 8-10 calls a day.  And our service department, the phones are just ringing off the hook with people calling and wanting help... they are getting about 20-25 calls per day,"  Wallens said.

The Accurate Heating and Cooling Company expects these long hours to continue until the heat wave passes through.
