How to Tell When It’s Time to Repair Your Air Conditioner & What to Do About It

Posted on June 20, 2018Rick Welter

Man Inspecting the Air Conditioner

In Minnesota and other northern regions, 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 2018, the temperature hit 100-degrees over Memorial Day weekend—well before the typical timing of a summer heat wave.

Trivia this time around saw a lot of trivia heavy-hitters! Having received a whopping 221 entries, over 50 of you got the answer correct!

Now that the air conditioning season is well underway, we asked you: “What is the most common cause of poor air flow in heating and cooling systems?”

The answer? It’s not your fan blades or blower motor. It’s those dirty or clogged air filters.

Considering that so many of you got the answer right, we had to randomly select a winner from our pool of trivia experts. Please join us in congratulating Renae Elert for not only knowing that air filters are important for air quality and flow, but also for being our lucky winner!

Although the average temperature in Minnesota is 55 degrees, summer will be here before we know it (fingers crossed!).

How to Reduce Air Conditioning Costs

According to the U.S. Department of Energy, 75% of homes have air conditioners and account for 6% of all electricity produced in the country.
