As the temperature heats up, many homeowners will turn their air conditioning up for the first time, only to realize that it’s not working. This is the time of year when Chas Roberts’s phones start to light up with concerned customers who need air conditioning service, just as the temperatures are starting to creep up.
Exposure to the intense heat in Arizona isn’t just an uncomfortable inconvenience. It can be dangerous, and even deadly. Arizona has one of the highest average annual rates of death from heat exposure among U.S. states, according to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC). And the National Weather Service reports that heat-related death for those 25 years old or greater was three to seven times higher in Arizona as compared to the entire U.S. The elderly are often most affected because their bodies don’t cope as well with such temperatures.
Heat-related illness and deaths are preventable. In a desert climate like Arizona, it’s critical for you to have a properly working air conditioner. The National Weather Service’s website says that air conditioning in homes and other buildings markedly reduces danger from the heat and according to the CDC’s website, air-conditioning is the number one protective factor against heat-related illness and death.

Chas Roberts will select two winners; each will receive a new Carrier- or Goodman-brand air conditioning system, installed by Chas Roberts. “We’re thrilled to sponsor this contest for a second year,” says Roberts Shank. “It was so rewarding to meet the winning families in last year’s contest. If the moving nominations we received last year are any indication, this year’s contest will be a huge success.”
