Scott Stevens is the General Manager at Fahrhall Home Comfort Specialists and has helped countless homeowners improve their home comfort. Today, he shares some insider tips about AC repair, service and installation.
Q: How long can I expect my air conditioner to last?
A: You can expect most air conditioners to last between 10 and 15 years; however, it’s really dependent on the brand, how well it was installed and if it was regularly serviced and maintained. Well looked after air conditioners could last longer, while neglected ones could break down well before 10 years.
Q: When shopping for a new AC, does the brand really matter?
A: Yes! Brand matters because not all air conditioners are made the same. The quality of components will dictate how reliably the system will run and how long you can expect the equipment to last. At Fahrhall Home Comfort Specialists, we only stock and install reputable AC brands like Daikin, that come with industry-leading warranties.
Q: Why should I be scheduling an annual AC maintenance appointment? Is it really necessary?
A: You absolutely should be having a professional come to inspect and service the air conditioner every year. Not only is it a requirement to keep your manufacturer warranty valid, regular preventative maintenance can also increase efficiency and reliability. You can schedule maintenance any time during the summer, so don’t worry, it’s not too late to book your appointment!
Q: My air conditioner doesn’t seem to be working as it should. What can I try before calling for repair?
A: We always suggest that homeowners check the thermostat, filter and power supply before calling for repair. If all that seems to be in order, and you still can’t get your air conditioner to run properly, don’t hesitate to contact us to schedule a repair appointment.
