NEW ORLEANS, LA (WVUE) - Some air conditioning repair workers say they are getting calls that are false alarms.
Repair workers note many air conditioning units are designed to handle temperatures up to only 93 degrees."So anytime it gets above 93, you're beyond your designed set point. It starts encroaching, and you start losing capacity and things like that," said Brunson Heating and Air's Roger Norwood.
You can help your air conditioning units work more efficiently, if you keep blinds or drapes closed. That will block some radiant heat.
