GREENSBORO, N.C. -- Bob Rogers and his wife Dollie have been without proper air conditioning in their Greensboro home since Wednesday.

"It's been a little stuffy. It's been real hot man," Rogers said.

A freon leak was to blame for the family's broken central air unit, which keeps technicians like Chris Mitchell busy.

Mitchell said the family's unit was only two years old, however they had not had it serviced in over a year -- which is key.

"Which just goes to show, it doesn't matter how old the unit is -- it needs to be serviced," Mitchell said.

The family is now able to enjoy some cool air, but it's only a temporary fix.

Mitchell is waiting on a part that's needed to complete the repair.

Mitchell, who works for the Central Carolina Air Conditioning Company, said they've been swamped with repair calls.
