NORTHEAST WISCONSIN - With temperatures in the 90s and heat indexes even higher, it's not a good time to be without air conditioning.
The extreme heat and humidity is often responsible for air conditioners breaking down. At times like these, technicians say it's especially important to keep your filters and condensers clean.
"They work that much harder, you know, with the humidity, they're having more struggles so we're just not giving them a break and that's what is making them fail, you know, keeping us busy," said Mike Christensen with Christensen Heating & Air Conditioning.
Should your system overheat, experts say it's important to call a professional immediately instead of trying to fix it yourself.
