Tips to Extend the Life Expectancy of Your Air Conditioner

Carrier ACThe last thing you need in the exhausting, draining heat is for your savior, your hope, your air conditioner to malfunction before its time. You want that baby to work consistently every summer and so you need to extend its life expectancy to be reliable, consistent, and long-term. Here are five easy, practical, useful tips to increase your air conditioner unit’s lifespan.

1. Get Yearly Maintenance

Just like you should get regular oil changes for your car, an annual upkeep appointment for your air conditioner is paramount to maintenance. That way, you won’t be reacting to a surprise problem but anticipating possible problems ahead of time and responding on a need-be basis. Make an annual maintenance appointment.

2. Properly Install Your Air Conditioner

One of the most common reasons your air conditioner malfunctions or doesn’t last is actually incorrect installation. So instead of relying on yourself and the instruction manual, it’s worth investing in a reliable company to install it for you.

3. Change Your Filters Regularly

Another upkeep item that’s sensible and easy to ensure your air conditioner’s long life is to change filters on regular basis. Doing this also saves you money on energy costs and ensures you fun at maximum efficiency.

4. Buy High-Quality Premium Air Conditioner

Not all air conditioners are created equal. Opt for air conditioners that have a two-stage compressor and variable speed air handler because they have much longer life expectancies than basic commercial models. Again, it’s an investment up front that ends up saving your time and money down the line.

5. Minimize Your Air Conditioner’s Workload

There are options to run your air conditioner on energy saving cycles that provide ample cool air but don’t overwork the system. Further, always make sure your ducts are tightly sealed so you don’t have any leaks that force your air conditioner to work harder than it should. Your air conditioner’s workload shouldn’t overwork it to death and by these two gestures, you’re helping its life expectancy tremendously.
