Medford, Ore. -- This extreme heat is busting air-conditioners to across the Rogue Valley tonight.
Repairmen are working overtime trying to make emergency fixes but some are booked two weeks out. Leaving some homeowners with little choice but to swelter and wait.
Sometimes a seat in the shade and some water is just about all you can do to cool off.
Technician Pete Brown with Metal Masters says they've simply been booked solid and other Southern Oregon companies say they've got a two week waiting list.
With temperatures in triple digits- Brown says AC's are having a hard time keeping up.
Sometimes the problem is mechanical but it can also be caused by so many people using so much power.
