How Long Do Air Conditioners Typically Last?
Systems range widely in terms of how long they last. Most heating, ventilation and air conditioning systems will last between 15 and 25 years. They can last longer, especially if well-maintained. However, poor maintenance can cut this time in half. Combined systems like this typically will last at least 20 years. Smaller units will last a shorter amount of time, often between 10 and 15 years.
Proper Care Matters the Most
Air conditioners last longer with proper maintenance. This maintenance includes monthly air filter cleaning. It also includes steps like having a professional inspect your system every six months for proper function. Our team will inspect, clean, and maintain your existing air conditioner during every service call. This ensures the system is always running at its most efficient level. It also helps ensure that if a problem is present, it is caught as early as possible.
What About Efficiency?
When considering whether or not it is time to replace your air conditioner, you may need to consider how well it is running. A system that is operational, but running hard all of the time, is expensive to maintain. In some situations, you will need to make repairs often. This makes the system costly to maintain. More so, your energy bills may rise if your air conditioner is not working at its best. In these situations, replacing an older system with a newer, more efficient model is best.
