FOREST, Va. – There's new information on the meaning behind a billboard that's generated a lot of buzz in our community.

It was a mystery with only four words.

Chances are you've seen the "Your wife is HOT!" on billboards on Forest Road near Lynchburg. There's been a lot of speculation over the company behind it.

But now we know that it was created by a heating and air condition company out in Madison Heights. 
The sign now reads, "Your wife is HOT! Better get the A/C Fixed."

"It's pretty cool. I hadn't gotten any feed back from it yet. But I'm sure by tomorrow into tonight. I will see a lot of it on Facebook, phone calls, just a bunch of high fives and that sort of stuff," Fred Hickey, owner of Hickey Electric Heating and Air Company, said.

The owner says he got the idea after he spotted a similar sign while traveling.
