How to Make Your AC Last Longer

Most central air conditioning systems last about 10 to 15 years and replacement can be an expensive affair. Even getting repairs can be costly, especially if a major breakdown occurs or your system has been suffering from years of wear-and-tear.

Fortunately, there are ways you can make your investment on an AC worth it. By taking the right action today, you can help extend the lifespan of your system, even up to another 15 years or so!

Important Steps to Help Your AC Last Longer:

  • Schedule regular maintenance – Preventative air conditioning system maintenance is one of the most effective solutions to extending the life of your AC. In addition to resolving potential issues, professional technicians can conduct prompt repairs when necessary.
  • Change air filters – Air filters are important components in regards to performance and efficiency. Air filters should be changed every month or so, especially if you have a lot of occupants and pets in your home.
  • Inspect air ducts – If there are leaks, obstructions, gaps or loose seems in your duct work, cool air can escape before reaching rooms, which means that your AC is working even harder than necessary. Ensure you have adequate insulation to ensure that your system is running at peak efficiency.
  • Remove blockages to air flow – Keep the area around cooling vents and return inlets clear of any objects, such as furniture, or obstacles, including curtains.
  • Make sure that your system is clean and free of debris – Follow the manufacturer guidelines for seasonal cleaning. If your unit is located outside, keep it clear of leaves, mud, and debris.
