It’s summertime, and the living is easy—if you can manage to stay cool. Things are heating up around Sparta, and it’s as important as ever to make sure your air conditioning is ready to go for summer.
What’s The Lifetime of My Air Conditioning?
There’s no sense in trying to repair or improve an air conditioner that has run out of life. Typically, an air conditioning unit has a life expectancy of around 15 years. Now that doesn’t necessarily mean you are buying one every 15 years on the dot—a lot of air conditioners that have been treated well could last a few years longer, while the neglected AC unit will come up a bit short.
The best thing you can do to help your air conditioner last as long as possible is to clean it. Pop the cover off, and remove the film on the outside of the unit similar dryer lint. If you are looking to install a new AC unit, you want to try your best to have it installed in a shady spot out of the sun so that it doesn’t have to work as hard.
Why Replace My AC Unit?
There are many reasons you would want to replace your air conditioning unit rather than perform maintenance on your existing AC. Like many other things, technology has advanced in air conditioners, and when compared to a new unit, the one in your home probably seems pretty dated.
New air conditioning units are more efficient in their process and require less energy to cool your home. There is an obvious perk to using less energy in this way—it can help cut back significantly on the bills you pay through the summer! The hottest months of the year are often the most expensive on your statement, and this is an investment that pays off.
