    We finally hit 85+ here in Wi and I also finally get my HVAC guy to come out to check my AC OD unit on Monday since up until today it has been to cold to even think about turning them on here since we never know if it is going to sleet rain snow or have a tornadoe, LOL !!!! With my luck the temp will drop down to mid 40's and he won't be able to come out

    A former employer said something that seems to be true most times, “ It takes about a week of warmer weather before people get fed up and call.”

    A day or 2 fussing with the stat hoping it'll work, a day or 2 not having a clue but looking around for something that might be a problem. A day or 2 looking for spare change and wondering how bad the tabs gonna be. Finally fed up with sweating all the time and not getting any sleep, the call is made.

    Seems bout right.

    Remember to drink plenty of fluids while working outside on those units guys (as I'm sure you already do). It seems like the eastern US is getting hit pretty hard these next few days with heat/humidity. I personally love the weather, and I'm glad it brings you all some more business! Reminds me of those few days in the past when I didn't have A/C on days like these... not fun. At least now it's a cool 72 in my house.

    Beenthere, are you gonna run any of the calls during the 90*+ weather coming up this weekend in Lancaster?

    No hesitation around here - it got hot, and we got swamped.
    You can't come to my house right now???

    Never seen us so far behind on service. Funny that installs aren't that bad. But seems like every day we get more new calls in than we get run. Got almost everyone working Sat AM but it's friggin' raining. Hopefully will end by the time the troups gather or they won't gather.

    It's gonna be a fun weekend, that's for sure.

    Sitting here in my shop/garage and it's 59*, 97%humid and sticky like a mofo.

    Supposed to go into the 90's now for a few days and 80's during the week and we always get plastered with the friggin humidity.

    Grabbed 45 gals of diesel on the way here.($220)

    Throwing some extra's on the rig. (Like 2 tanks 'o freezone and a box fulla runcaps j/k) and fill up the ice water. Usually the first serious heat we get is when it goes totally out of hand. As soon as the weatherman said "hot, humid, and nasty.", the phone started ringing. People like to wait till the very last second till the sweat is dripping off they're noses. Booked 7 for today so far.
