Many businesses see a slump in sales over the summer months because of the heat and because families go on vacation. But some businesses depend on these hot days to make the majority of their money for the year.
Businesses like Extasy Tinting and Accessories can barely keep up with the influx of customers in the summer months. Owner Jerry Hernandez says he depends on those numbers to stay in business for the rest of the year.
"I virtually almost triple the amount of business I get in the summer months compared to the rest of the year," Hernandez said.
He says the heat helps set the film on the windows, and it's even better when it's humid outside because the dust settles when there's moisture in the air.
"People are suffering inside their vehicles it gets so hot inside the cars, people just can't stand it," he said. "People want to go ahead and get that heat out."
