You invested money into your air conditioning system, so you hope that it will last for a long time and that you won’t have to replace it for many years to come. Preventing premature AC replacement starts in the first year of AC system ownership and continues on throughout its lifespan. The smallest things can help to keep you from replacing your air conditioner too soon and save you a whole lot of money in the long term.
Only allow professionals to install it
If your air conditioner is not properly sized, it will struggle to operate properly and may fail years sooner than AC units typically should. Make sure you hire a trustworthy trained AC technician to install it so that you know it’s not too big or too small.
Sign up for a maintenance plan
Routine air conditioning maintenance, performed once a year, can help to prolong the lifespan of your AC system. Signing up for a maintenance program through a local technician guarantees annual service visits (with payment) and may include additional benefits like discounts on services. Contact a local technician for details.
Change the filter
It’s a simple step that many people neglect, and for a small fee, your air conditioner may struggle less and end up lasting for longer. Change the air filter each month so that you get enough airflow through the system.
Call for repairs when the system struggles
When your air conditioning system is not working properly, it’s important for your system to get fixed ASAP. The longer you let the problem go on, the more likely it is to progress into a much bigger problem. The air conditioner won’t get better on its own, so seek repairs promptly to reduce wear and tear.
