Remember those last couple of summers in the mountains? Yes it was hot in December, but by late January and February it was really, really hot.

Well, guess what, those 40 degree plus days are quite likely coming again, however, there's no need to panic because there's plenty of time to get your AC needs sorted.

Lower Mountains Air Conditioning owners Anthea and Andrew Strathdee said now was the time to perhaps start thinking about and planning your cooling options for summer.

But if it seems like it might be impossible to have it all sorted by Christmas, they advised people not to worry too much as there is still time before those impossibly warm days.

On account of travel restrictions, many homeowners are staying in their communities for the summer holiday period, and this, in turn, has led to a busy uptick in business for the air conditioning industry as a whole.

This means booking and thinking ahead is important when looking to get work done. "Yes, summer does start December 1, but the real heat is yet to come," Anthea said. "Still we'd encourage people to plan and organise things now."

Lower Mountains Air Conditioning are experts in what they do - after all, they have been operating since 1988.

The company was originally owned and founded by John Du Rieu when it first opened in Blaxland East.

Since that time, it's relocated to Smith Street, Emu Plains and then a larger premises again on Russell Street, Emu Plains where it remains today.

Andrew and Anthea, owners of Strathdee Electrical, purchased the business from John in 2014.

Strathdee Electrical is a family-owned business now in its third generation, handed down from Andrew's grandfather since 1943 - that's a huge 75 years.

Andrew and John have been working together in the industry since 1995 and even earlier in 1970 when Andrew was John's apprentice over 20 years ago.

They both live and work in the local area and are qualified and experienced refrigeration, air conditioning, and electrical technicians.

Andrew has had extensive experience in the field installing and servicing domestic, industrial and commercial air conditioning, refrigeration equipment and electrical work.

Andrew and Anthea are responsible for the general running of the business including on-site sales and quotations.

In addition to this, they also participate in servicing and trouble-shooting any technical difficulties in most brands.

Andrew and Anthea are supported by a reliable, loyal and qualified team of 14 employed staff - tradespeople, apprentices, trade assistants and friendly office staff.
