Air conditioning is an easy luxury to take for granted. Many people don’t realize the impact it has on their comfort until something happens to it.

Like with all mechanical appliances, air conditioners are prone to malfunction and will eventually wear out.

What is the life expectancy of an AC unit?
In general, an air conditioning unit lasts between 10 to 15 years, although with maintenance, units can last as long as 20 years. If your unit is near the end of its life and having more problems, buying a new one may cost you less over the long term than continuing to fix everything that goes wrong with it.
How often should your unit receive maintenance?
In many cases, as long as an air conditioner isn’t having any obvious problems, it’s easy to forget that it needs to be maintained. Unfortunately, poor maintenance can significantly decrease the life of your unit and will even make it less effective.
We recommend having your air conditioner serviced at least once per year. This involves tuning up the unit, inspecting it for developing problems, and clearing it of dust and debris. This routine maintenance is crucial to the longevity and efficiency of the unit.
What is the importance of regular AC filter replacement?
Your AC filter has a simple but important job. As air circulates through the system, the filter catches dust, hair, pet dander, pollen and other particulate matter that contributes to allergies. Unfortunately, this means that the airflow will gradually become less efficient until the filter gets clogged.
Not only is this bad for your allergies but also for your air conditioner. A dirty or clogged filter will cause your unit to work harder to move air through the filter, which can shorten its lifespan. We recommended having your AC filter changed once every 3 months minimum.
What are easy ways to save more on your cooling costs?
In the summer, the cost of cooling your home can become quite costly. Fortunately, this is something that you have some control over. For starters, keep your home’s thermostat set to at least 78 degrees. This temperature has been found to provide the greatest reduction in energy waste, thereby saving you money. Keeping your blinds or curtains closed during the hottest parts of the day also helps. If you want to go a step further, plant shade trees along the parts of your home with the most sun exposure.
Your home’s AC unit is all that stands between comfort and and sweltering temperatures. By keeping a few things in mind and using good maintenance habits, you can enjoy a more comfortable, hassle-free summer.
