5 Warning Signs That Something’s Wrong With Your A/C Unit

Posted on June 22, 2017Rick Welter

In Minnesota, air conditioners typically go unused from October to May. That’s roughly eight months standing idle—and issues can crop up when it’s finally time to flip the on switch when the summer heat hits.

We recommend that all homeowners test run their air conditioners when the first 75-degree day of the season hits, so they can diagnose whether any maintenance or repairs are needed before the hot streak of the summer hits. Of course, Minnesota weather doesn’t allow for precise preparation. In 2013, temperatures hit 98 in early May—well before the typical timing of a summer heat wave.

So, whether your air conditioner is already running or you haven’t kicked it on, you should be aware of some warning signs that signal it’s time call in an HVAC professional for maintenance or repair. Below we highlight five of those warning signs.
