    I actually got a new customer no cooling call yesterday! I didn't know how to talk to the guy it's been so long. A hot 52 this morning!

    Thank the Lord we have had so many days above 93 with high humidity. It has been months straight like this. We downsized and have been turning work down consistently. In Florida when its 93, it feels like 103+. I have had to do a lot more work with the downsize but I'll be thankful....even if I do have heart attack.

    We are overflowing with work. All of the heat this summer put us way behind on cleans. Still have installs to do though I'm hoping to steal installers to help with the prepaid cleans we owe people. Not going to be slow til about Feb it looks like.

    I feel the pain...

    Our company is a small one 2 service trucks 2 install trucks. 3 service techs, 2 installers, 2 helpers. Doing 2-3 installs a week. We've had to shift our advertising from Orange county to Inland Empire where its at least 90 deg + some days.

    I run 2-3 calls a day, some tune ups, some warranty work and the occasional non op. Sadly my last 2 calls were duds. 1 needed a t-stat battery and the other tripped the electric breaker from using an oven AND AC unit.

    sheesh!

    Some 100+ deg days would fatten up my paycheck :0)
