Stores seeing rush on air conditioning sales


As the temps outside continue to rise, the fight to keep homes cool on the inside is getting harder to do.

Jake Ellwood, a customer service representative at the Quincy Lowe's Home Improvement store, says the store has sold just over a dozen air conditioning units in the past day.

They've also been flooded with calls from customers who's A/C units have broken down.

"We're seeing a lot more of the affordable air conditioners going out, than the actual window units," Ellwood said. "But now the window units are finally kicking up too, as the heat is getting higher."

Ellwood says in anticipation for higher temps later this week, the store moved the majority of their A/C units to the front of the store, to make them easier for customers to find.
