(KMOV) -- Air conditioning repair crews are getting swamped during these hot and humid days of summer.
One repairman said the problem is there haven't been as many cool down days. It got hot and stayed hot, so everyone's had their AC on for weeks.
One way you can avoid problems is to take a water hose to your central air conditioning unit and spray off the dust and dirt that clog the system and cause it to work harder.
