How To Prolong The Life Of Your Air Conditioning System

By Robert Smidth

Your air conditioning system is an expensive collection of complex, technical pieces of equipment all designed and installed to work together. It is an expensive and highly valued mechanism which you want to enjoy for as long as possible. It makes a huge improvement to the air quality in your home.

Imagine if it was not working. How hot and uncomfortable would you’re feeling? But more than a better ventilated home and cooler air. Your air conditioner also removes pollen, mud, dust mites, mould and other air contaminants so it improves your well-being too. So you would like to keep it working at top performance for so long as possible and what it takes is a 5 minute telephone call twice yearly.

Is that all? Yessir – that’s all. Just pick up the telephone and call your local air-conditioning service company to order a regular service check.

You ought to have a professionally qualified technician or service contractor look at your system at least annually but ideally twice. Once in the spring and again in the autumn i.e. Before and after the massive use period.

If you keep a regular service regime, then you ought to have many years of problem-free satisfaction with high quality cooled air free from pollen and other health perils from your ventilation apparatus. But even the best maintained mechanical elements and systems show signs of wear after a bit.

You may have some repairs done to lengthen the working life of your air conditioner but at some particular stage the price tag of mending is going to begin to outweigh the benefits of getting your system fixed. If you’re spending a couple of hundred dollars on repairs and replacement whenever you have your system serviced, then you’ve got to begin to query the worth of doing that compared against the price of replacing the system or at a minimum the key parts.

Your running costs are also certain to be higher too in an older system or one that requires repeated repairs. The entire system is probably going to be working below ideal performance so your home will be warmer or cooler than you predict. To fix the temperature you’ll be changing the thermostat and guess what? You will be spending more on your electricity bills. So you have got to ask a tricky query. Should I am getting the system fixed again or have I got to bite the bullet and replace it?

Another questions you should ask yourself. Is how old is the system? A good air conditioning system should last 12 years or more. If yours is older than that then you are probably facing a tough decision but at the same time be grateful for the years of wonderful cooling air you and great ventilation you have had.

More modern systems will definitely be better and use less power for a similar performance so while you are making a serious outlay on the new gear, your operating costs will be less from utilizing a more recent, better system.

It isn’t an easy choice to spend a serious amount on a new air-conditioning system but occasionally it just makes business sense.
