“If it’s true that misery loves company, then Seattle is a great place to be during a heat wave. At least you know that most of your neighbors are suffering just like you.

That’s because Seattle is the least air-conditioned metro area in the nation — at least out of the 41 metros included in the U.S. Census Bureau’s American Housing Survey. As of 2015, only one of every three housing units in the Seattle area was cooled by central air or a room unit. That’s nowhere near the national average of 89 percent.”

If your AC has gone haywire, don’t resort to crazy tactics to stay cool. Call Apple Valley Eagan Appliance at 952-953-0080 to schedule a repair today!
