How to Prolong the Lifespan of Your Air Conditioner
In our service area, homeowners don’t really need their air conditioners for very long, using them only for a few months out of the year. So it’s surprising to homeowners to learn that an air conditioner they may have purchased less than a decade ago is failing. How can you make sure that your AC equipment lasts for longer in an area like ours? Proper care and maintenance is all it takes. Check out our guide or call our team for more information.
Get It Professionally Installed
It’s alarming how often we check out a failing air conditioner, only to find that the homeowner was ripped off with a faulty, miscalculated installation. When an air conditioner is not sized for a home, whether it’s too big or too small, the parts wear down quickly. If any of the components are not securely in place, then the unit gets worn down too. Be sure that you have quality technicians on your side.
Don’t Wait to Get Repairs
Be sure to call a local HVAC technician as soon as you notice a problem with your air conditioner. Waiting too long to call on professionals can cause a small issue with an AC system to spiral out of control. Whether the system has shut down completely or it’s just started to noticeably slow in performance, call in an AC repair expert ASAP.
Change the Filter
We’ve saved the simplest part for last. Change the filter once a month. Once you know where the filter is located, and once you stock up on filters from a local contractor or hardware shop, it’s easy. And it ensures that air can flow through the air conditioning system with ease, keeping the components of your air conditioner from wearing out too soon.
