How can I make sure my AC lasts a long time?

Air conditioners are a big investment. Installing a new unit can put a huge dent in your wallet. The good news is that a well-maintained air conditioner can last up to 10 years or more. There are even a few easy maintenance steps any homeowner can take to keep their air conditioner running happily for years to come:

  • Change filters every 3-6 months. Air filters help keep the air in our homes clean and clear. In doing so, they eventually clog up and prevent adequate air flow. Changing your air filters every 3-6 months will help to ensure adequate air flow and ease the burden on your AC.
  • Keep vents cleaned and clear. Air vents that are blocked by furniture or clogged with debris won’t move air efficiently, which causes your AC to work harder. To ensure proper air flow, make sure all air vents are clear of furniture, objects, or debris.
  • Set a timer. Turning off your AC when you’re not home is a great way to save on energy and ease the strain on your AC unit. But this can be hard to remember to do, especially if you’re in a hurry. Setting your thermostat to a timer will help to keep your home cool when you’re home and save energy and wear when you’re out.
  • Twice-a-year servicing. Regular maintenance doesn’t just prevent big problems. It also keeps your air conditioner running at peak performance, keeping you cool while ensuring the highest possible efficiency and extending the lifetime of your AC unit.

In general, if you make life easier on your air conditioner, it’ll make life easier for you too. Making sure air flows freely, filters are clean, and your AC only runs when it needs to will help ease the burden on your air conditioner and prevent wearing, corrosion, or broken parts.

What happens if I don’t maintain my AC?

In short, you lose money. An air conditioner that runs without maintenance for a long time will eventually run less and less efficiently–if it doesn’t break down. Air conditioning units are made up of many small and large parts working together, which means even a small problem like a dirty filter can cause larger issues with the whole system if left for too long.

Without maintenance, your air conditioning system will likely suffer from the following issues:

  • Air filters clog up and block airflow.
  • Air condenser coils gather dirt and absorb less heat.
  • Moving parts lose lubrication and wear down with use.
  • Delicate coil fins can become bent and block airflow.
  • Leaks can form and draining refrigerant.

And these are only the most common issues we’ve seen in our 15 years of experience. Of course, there’s no guarantee that regular maintenance will prevent all major issues in the future. But it’s reasonable to expect that an unmaintained air conditioning unit will inevitably cost you more money than it’s worth. Catching the small issues early with an affordable regular maintenance plan will greatly extend the life of your AC unit and save you money.

How often does my air conditioner need servicing?

Twice a year. In most places, an air conditioner should be serviced once a year. But North Las Vegas isn’t most places. The high desert heat of Nevada puts much more pressure on our air conditioners. With temperatures reaching easily into the 100s, Nevada summers force AC units to work much harder keeping our homes cool. This puts a lot of strain on our AC units and causes little signs of wear and tear to develop quicker. That’s why we highly recommend getting your air conditioner serviced twice a year.

These are the most common steps we take during our maintenance service calls:

  • Inspect and calibrate thermostat.
  • Check refrigerant and add as needed.
  • Inspect and lubricate moving parts as needed.
  • Inspect blower assembly.
  • Check wires for rust, corrosion, or disconnections.
  • Clean and change air filters.

No two air conditioners are the same, but our maintenance experts are trained to know what to look for in any air conditioning system. We work only with seasoned industry experts, and each of our technical specialists are highly trained and NATE-certified, meaning they have the expertise and knowledge to identify the most hard-to-spot signs of wear and tear.
