How to Avoid Emergency Air Conditioner Repair

Even a brand new conditioner will need service and attention to ensure it runs properly.

Like all mechanical devices, your new AC system requires regular maintenance to ensure it continues to run smoothly and efficiently; this will save you money, and ensure that a small issue doesn’t become a larger problem down the road.

  • One of the best things a homeowner can do to ensure a properly running air conditioner is to change out the filter on a regular basis. HVAC professionals recommend that you replace your filter every 90 days. More often if you live with pets, or someone in the house suffers from allergies. If you don’t remember how long it’s been since you’ve changed out your filter, it’s definitely time. Modern, Smart or Wifi thermostats will often have a feature that can remind you when it’s time to replace your filter. When you are at the store, grab a two- or three-pack, and you’ll be set.
  • Schedule regular AC maintenance from a reputable air conditioner contractor. Your heating and AC system should be checked out at least once a year by a professional. At this time, our techs will clean and inspect parts that commonly malfunction.
  • The life expectancy of an air conditioner is around 15 – 20 years – this can change dramatically based on how the unit was installed, and whether the unit was maintained properly over the years. If your AC system is nearing the end of its life, it is time to schedule a consultation with one of our comfort experts. We can help you find the right cooling system for your budget and needs.
