Scorching French temperatures set to arrive on British shores

The European heatwave overwhelming much of the continent has shown no sign of letting up, with France hitting its highest recorded temperature of 45.1⁰C in the southern town of Carpentras.

This scorching thermometer reading surpassed the previous highest of 44.1⁰C in 2003 and could yet be broken again, with high atmospheric pressure expected to continue drawing hot air from northern Africa.

With conditions as they are, it will come as no surprise to hear that our engineers have been working around the clock to help people beat the European heat!

Fittingly, our recently-opened Marseille depot is situated approximately one hour away from sizzling Carpentras – where the demand for our intervention has been particularly high!

And while the intense hot weather has caused transport chaos via melted roads and warped rail tracks, we have been providing businesses across the country with hired air conditioning solutions to ensure people are kept cool as they go about their daily business.

Over the past few days, we have delivered and installed hundreds of units and this looks set to continue for the foreseeable future.

France, Germany, Spain and Italy have all been grappling with unprecedented high temperatures, which are now also expected to descend upon the UK.

Early indications suggest that London and much of the South East are due temperatures in excess of 30⁰C, with Andrews Air Conditioning once again prepared to be inundated with requests for assistance!

The summer of 2018 was the joint hottest on record in the UK but while other companies floundered under pressure, we were able to satisfy the demands of clients and even expanded our hire fleet to accommodate the large volume of requirements.
