With temperatures finally starting to go up in Winnipeg, it’s natural to assume your air conditioner is trying harder. The two go hand-in-hand, and all is dandy until the hottest day of summer happens and you come home to the realization that your air conditioner stopped working. What now?
You have come to rely on your air conditioner when the temperatures reach their peak, and we all know that summers in Winnipeg can provide some unexpectedly hot weather, so why do we seem to always be surprised when they arrive? There’s no way around the increasing temperatures throughout the summer, but there are a few things you can do to be sure your air conditioner is ready to handle them. It’s tough to get an accurate idea of the health of your air conditioner if you don’t have annual maintenance performed, and this is particularly applicable to systems that are over 10 years old.
Even if your system is five years old or newer, if you haven’t had maintenance performed, you could run the risk of having it stop running at the worst possible time, which seems to happen almost every time. It doesn’t matter if you’re heading out for a business trip or you’re planning on having company tomorrow, having your air conditioner stop running never happens at a convenient time.

While there are a nearly endless number of concerns that can arise with air conditioners, there are a couple that come up more than others, including:
- Lapsed Maintenance – Think of regular air conditioner service like getting an oil change for your car. Not only does it serve a critical purpose for performance, if you don’t do it you’ll start inviting other issues coming up as a result. Staying on top of regular AC system maintenance means that your system will get the attention it needs as well as helping uncover problems before they become more of an issue. Plus, when you have maintenance done you stand a better chance of increasing your system’s efficiency and maybe even decreasing your energy expenses.
- Deteriorating Components – If your air conditioner isn’t being serviced regularly, there’s a chance that essential parts to your system’s functionality are slowly being negatively affected. Ranging from the compressor and fan to a host of other pieces, if your system isn’t working at its finest, you run the risk of having the parts go bad. A possible sign of this is if your air conditioner cycles on and off regularly, placing an unnecessary amount of stress on the components and potentially leading to system failure.
- Thermostat Problems – Thermostats play a bigger role in your comfort than they are given credit for, and while it’s easy to view them as the place to turn the temperature up and down, if they aren’t maintanted, you might be feeling the effects. It can be something as easy as switching out your battery or it could be something larger like an incorrectly calibrated thermostat sensor, but either way, it could change the performance of your air conditioner.
