AC Running Overtime In The Extreme Heat

With temperatures soaring well into the 90s Wednesday it's safe to bet most people were blasting the AC in their homes and cars.

Local auto shops say with the heat comes a lot of broken air conditioning systems. Pirate Auto Care in Greenville says business has picked up during the last few weeks, saying workers have fixed several AC compressors and done about 20 air conditioning checks.

Ann Rouse says the AC recently broke in her sister's car. "It's really hot. My sister, her vehicle, the air conditioning broke down. She has a heart condition and when she has to go from Aurora to over here, she has to stop because she gets sick, it's so hot."

Auto workers say getting your car's AC system checked once a year can help detect freon leaks before they develop into a bigger problem.
