Keep Temperatures Consistent

The first tip we have to help your air conditioner last longer lies in consistency. All else being equal, even with perfect upkeep, your air conditioner won’t last long if you frequently and constantly adjust the thermostat. Smart thermostats are a saving grace with today’s HVAC systems that ensures a consistent temperature with minimal interruption from you the user. Wide ranges of change in temperature apply undue stress and pressure to your AC’s operations reducing optimal performance.

Change Your Air Conditioner Filter

We probably sound like a broken record about air filters at this point. But it’s worth mentioning time and time again. One of the easiest ways to help your air conditioner last longer as well as keep your air clean is simply changing your air filter on a regular basis. This crucial piece of your HVAC system is the first line of defense against any loss in heating or cooling performance. Although most filters need only be changed once every two months, we recommend you check them every month. Use of air conditioning is a very important factor in determining how long a filter will last.

Regular HVAC Maintenance

It can be tempting to skip this essential service in an attempt to save money, but in your pursuit to help your air conditioner last longer this tip is a critical component. Regular HVAC maintenance is a necessity to any AC system regardless the absence of any negative symptoms. Preventative care can increase the lifetime of your AC exponentially. A qualified HVAC contractor will also be familiar with your system, warranty coverages, and any weaknesses that need regular upkeep. When selecting your contractor make sure they are certified to operate in your area with the proper insurance to do the necessary maintenance work.
