ice creamIt’s the middle of the night and you wake up sweating. You notice it’s warmer in your bedroom than usual.

That’s odd. Maybe it’s just warmer out tonight. I’ll go turn down the thermostat.

You think as you shuffle out of your room and head to the little magic box that keeps your home cool and comfortable in the harsh California summers.

A few clicks of a button or turn of a dial later and you’re back in bed, waiting for the cool air to save you. Only it never comes.

By morning, it’s painfully obvious that your air conditioner isn’t working. Before sheer panic sets in, you remember about an ad you saw on TV and quickly look up the company and make an appointment.

They’ll be at your home to (hopefully) fix your air in 3 days.


What are you going to do in this miserable heat until your A/C is ready to cool down your home again? Take a look at some of our favorite beat the heat summer activities for when you’ve called the *other* companies and are left waiting days for service:
