New AC Costs Vs. Maintaining Your Existing Unit
With the cost of a new home AC installation or replacement being excessive, you may be asking yourself, “How can I extend the life of my home’s AC?” Well, there are several things you can do to extend the life of your central air conditioning unit and avoid installing a new AC.
First and foremost, it is important to change the air filters monthly when your AC is working hard to keep the home cool during extended periods of excessive heat in the summer. A clogged air or dirty air filter makes your air conditioner work harder to push air through the dirt and grime buildup. Also, scheduling maintenance for your air conditioner is critical to getting the longest life from the unit. Regular maintenance ensures the AC is in good working condition and will catch any potential issues before they become a big problem.
