How Do I Make My AC Last Longer?

If you’ve ever had to replace your air conditioner, you know it’s not a small investment. Homeowners who have had this experience know that you should do everything you can to keep your AC working and prevent the expense of a new system from coming any sooner than it has to. That’s why we’re offering some tips for how to make your AC last longer.

Don’t Skip Maintenance

Having regular maintenance done on your air conditioner is the most important thing you can do to extend the life of the system. Air conditioning maintenance ensures that your AC is ready for the change of seasons by keeping it clean and efficient. Maintenance also catches small issues before they become big, costly repairs that cause other problems. You should schedule an AC tune-up twice a year, once in spring and fall.

Tune-ups aren’t the only way you can service your AC. You can do a couple of things without a technician. Replace your air filter every two to three months, or every month if you have shedding pets or kids. You can also keep your system efficient by keeping debris away from your outdoor AC unit.

Be Aware of Your System

It’s important not to ignore your system between maintenance visits. Keeping an eye out for problems or changes in your system’s performance will help you take action to repair it sooner rather than later. This can go a long way towards keeping an energy-efficient air conditioner and extend the life of the system. Signs of a problem with your AC include:

  • Warm air
  • Uneven cooling
  • Low or no airflow
  • Unusual noises and odors
  • Frequent cycling

Address Repairs Immediately

If you notice a problem with your AC, have a technician visit as soon as possible. While it’s easy to let small things slide or say “I’ll call them tomorrow” for weeks on end, you could be hurting your system. Small problems can become big, expensive problems pretty quickly if left unchecked, and they can also cause permanent damage to your AC. When you have repairs done immediately, you’re saving your AC from an early retirement.

Betsy W.

Professional and Honest

After receiving a ridiculously high quote from the HVAC company sent out by our home warranty, my husband wanted a second opinion. Our technician Mike was thorough and honest about what needed repair. Not only was the diagnosis much simpler, so was the price. Mike got the repair done quickly and was very professional. We’ll definitely be calling Go Green again.
