There is little to no cloud cover on most days, and air conditioning is a must-have in both your home and vehicle, not a luxury! When they need A/C repair, Glendale AZ residents come to CarLife Professional Auto Services. The hottest day of the year is July 4, with an average high of 107°F and low of 80°F. The fourth of July is traditionally a family holiday, with many families taking trips to see other family or friends.
