How Long Will My AC Last?
If you’re like many others, you might be wondering what the life expectancy of your air conditioner is. When properly maintained, a good quality AC system can last up to 15 years. Poor maintenance habits, however, can decrease this lifespan significantly. When air conditioners require frequent repairs, or the cost of repair is higher than 50% of the price of a new system, that’s typically a good indication it’s time for a replacement.
Overall, to get the most out of your new system, you will want to make sure you purchase a unit that is made by a reputable HVAC manufacturer that is known for using quality parts. In addition, you will want to have your AC system serviced on a regular basis and ensure that any needed repair work is performed immediately.
How Proper AC Installation Impacts Energy Efficiency
Everyone likes to save money. When it comes to saving cash with an AC system, energy efficiency is the name of the game. A highly efficient AC system starts with proper installation. You will first need to make sure your new air conditioner is adequately sized. A system that is too large or too small will cause it to use more energy than necessary. Once you have the right size system, it is also critical to get it set up appropriately. Improper installation can not only reduce your system’s efficiency, but it can also decrease your unit’s overall performance and longevity.
Here are some tips to maximize your air conditioner’s efficiency:
- Clean and replace filters regularly
- Schedule regular maintenance appointments
- Ensure all the air vents are unblocked
- Install a programmable thermostat
- Install a zoning system into your home
- Utilize ceiling fans to help rooms feel cooler
- Check ductwork for holes or disconnections
- Make sure your ductwork is properly sealed
- Consider installing a dehumidifier
Another thing that uses up energy faster is an older system. An air conditioner that is 10 years old can be as much as 60% less efficient than a brand-new system. In addition, as technology continues to improve, air conditioners are designed to do a lot better job cooling for far lower costs. If your energy bills are higher than normal, consider installing a new AC.
