Extending the Life of Your Air Conditioner

Aug 5, 2016

As we continue into summer, many of us are enjoying the comfort of our air conditioners. But how many of us stop to think about the life expectancy of the unit? On average an A/C unit will last between 15-20 years if it is maintained properly. A well maintained A/C unit will not only prolong the life of the unit, but it will also help reduce your energy costs and improve the performance of your system. Here are some helpful tips to extend the life of your A/C.

 

  1. Change the filter: You should be changing/cleaning the filters in your A/C unit regularly. It is recommended that you change the filter every 30-60 days. You want to do this to prevent a clogged filter which will make it more difficult for the air to pass through, making your system work harder than it needs to.

 

  1. Inspect for debris: As part of your regular yard maintenance make sure you are inspecting the unit outside for any debris that might have found its way into the unit. You want to do this to prevent the fan from clogging up.

 

  1. Give it a rest: If you are able to give your A/C a rest when it hot outside, it will last longer. Try shutting the curtains to block out the sun and use fans to circulate the cooler air. You can also install a programmable thermostat so that you can control how often the system kicks in.

 

  1. Have it serviced: Every spring you should call in a professional to service the unit. They will be able to spot any potential problems before they become serious.

 

  1. Have it cleaned: You should clean your A/C on a regular basis. Make sure you refer to your owner’s manual on how to clean your particular unit. You need to be very careful around the coil as they are easily damaged. I would recommend having a professional clean the coil to help avoid damages.
