Living in Las Vegas you know the summers get hot. You go outside and it is so hot that you want to come inside to a nice air-conditioned house. When you get an AC you want it to last as long as possible. So how do you know what is the best AC and how long will it last? Air Supply Heating & Air Conditioning is going to tell you a little bit about what will help or hinder your AC from lasting as long as possible.
What is the Best Expected Lifetime of an AC?
When you are looking for a new AC, you will want to try and figure out what AC is the best when it comes to its lifespan. Some AC units have longer expected lifespans than others. You will want to do some research before settling on an AC. A great thing to do is ask your AC contractor. They know a lot about ACs and can explain what is the best AC when it comes to an expected lifespan. This should be part of your research before you purchase a new unit.
Can Heat Mess Up an AC?
When your air conditioner is in severe weather it can really put damage on your AC. Air conditioners suffer worst in extreme heat. Heat can cause the motor to make cranky noises as well as overheat. Unfortunately, we live in Las Vegas and get some nice extreme heat in the summer. So, your AC system is just not going to last as long as it would in other places where it does not get as hot.
Does Running AC Shorten Lifespan?
The more you use your AC, the shorter the time period it will last. In Las Vegas it gets hot, so to cool us off what do we do? We run our AC units all day and night to keep our house cool, helping us survive the summer heat. Well, because it is used so much it puts a lot of wear and tear on it. The best thing you can do to prolong the life of your AC system is to schedule annual AC tune-ups with a professional. They can help detect if anything is wrong with your AC and make sure it is running smooth. You will want to make sure you change dirty filters regularly to help ensure there is no blockage of the air passageway. Doing this can help prolong your AC because you are taking care of it properly.
