How to prolong the life of your air conditioner

How to prolong the life of your air conditioner

Your home’s air conditioning system is one of your most important investments. It helps you feel comfortable – no matter how hot or cold it is outside. Once you’ve got a good quality air conditioning system set up, it’s important to make sure it lasts as for long as possible. Fortunately, there are some easy and effective ways you can extend the life of your air conditioning unit through proper care and maintenance. Here’s how.

Clean your air conditioning unit regularly

Part of your outdoor air conditioning is exposed to outdoor elements. So, by keeping it clean from dust, dirt, leaves and other debris, you can ensure it’s working at its best.

Have Vaccaro Group regularly service your air conditioner

In the same way you service your car, your air conditioning unit needs some extra love from time-to-time. When was the last time you had your air conditioner serviced? If the answer is ‘never’ or ‘I can’t remember’, it’s probably well overdue.

While it might feel like an extra expense, air conditioning tune-ups can actually save you money on more costly repairs down the track, as well as higher energy bills and a shorter life.

At Vaccaro Group, we recommend you have your air con serviced every 3-6 months. Get a licensed technician to inspect your unit and nip any issues in the bud, ensuring your system is clean and in good working condition

Keep filters clean and replace them regularly

If your air conditioning filters aren’t clean, debris, dust and dirt could enter and cause damage. Or, filters could get ‘stressed’, which can lead to the unit working in overdrive. From here, the system can overheat and burn out.

The good news is cleaning or replacing your filters is easy. Your unit will either have disposable filters that need to be replaced or reusable filters you can clean with water.

Ensure there’s no airflow problems

Airflow issues, such as an air leakage or blockage, can impair your air conditioner’s function. Left unchecked, these issues can significantly reduce your air conditioning system’s lifespan. Vaccaro Group can do bi-annual or annual checks of your unit to make sure everything’s working well. Contact Vaccaro Group today.

Use your air conditioner’s timer

While this may sound obvious, using your air conditioner less can prolong its life. A great way to control your household’s air conditioning use is to set timers. This can be done either on the remote or by using a smartphone app, like Daikin’s Airbase. Having your system running all the time can cause strain on the system, which can impact its lifespan. Make the most of those milder days to switch off the machine or limit your usage with an AC timer to make your appliance last for longer.
