MERLIN, Ore. -- Lam-Air of Merlin, Oregon says that a lack of young workers is putting the A/C repair industry at risk of death. 

With fewer young workers coming into the industry to replace the current generation, the industry is phasing out along with many other trades. 

LAM-AIR says that the times are changing. It is nearly a requirement to have A/C now. People are more and more comfortable in their own homes, and don't want to have to worry about cooling the house. 

However, if more workers don't get involved in the coming years, people may have to go back to fixing it themselves. 

The company says easiest way to avoid a broken A/C unit is to change the vent filters every two weeks, especially during fire season.
