ST. LOUIS, Mo. (KMOV.com) – Cool Down St. Louis has received numerous reports of repairmen asking for an outrageous amount of money from people needing their air conditioners fixed this summer.

According to the non-profit agency, majority of those being taken advantage of are senior citizens.

A recent warning from the Better Business Bureau in Texas claims that some companies are trying to upsell air conditioning repair when the temperatures climb.

Experts suggest homeowners be present for any inspections and repair work so they can receive an explanation on how the problem was diagnosed and how the company intends to fix it.

Cool Down St. Louis is urging residents to check on neighbors and make sure everyone is staying safe in the dangerously hot weather.
