PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN) – - The heat wave gripping the entire West Coast is only in its first day, but already the demand for air conditioning is coupled with the demand for air conditioner repair.
Clyde Burton of Ben’s Heating and Air Conditioning is busy trying to keep people cool after a hot day at work. He told KOIN 6 News one of the most common trouble spots for most people is the filter.
Change the filter every four weeks, he said, especially if you have kids or pets. But the real problem that keeps the air conditioning from properly working is blown fuses on the outside.
Replace the fuses and the unit gets back to work.
Burton has back-to-back calls and the calls keep coming in. Business is good when the temperatures soar.
