What is the lifespan of an AC unit?

Homeowners have a lot at stake when it comes to their AC unit. Not only do they want to make sure that the unit is running efficiently and keeping them cool, but they also want to be sure that the unit will last for as long as possible. Knowing the lifespan of an AC unit can help you make informed decisions about when it’s time to replace it. In this blog post, we’ll discuss some factors that affect the lifespan of an AC unit and how you can maximize its life.

The AC unit lifespan

The average lifespan of an AC unit is 10 to 12 years. The life expectancy of a unit depends on how well it has been maintained, its condition at the time of purchase and regular use. If your AC does not function properly, repairs or replacement may be necessary. If your AC is more than 12 years old, it may need to be replaced.

AC unit repairs and replacements

An AC unit typically lasts around 10 years. However, some people choose to have their AC unit replaced after 5 or 7 years because they start to experience problems like a weak air flow or loud noise. Replacing an AC unit is typically not a very expensive process and it can be done by a professional.

Energy efficiency of an AC unit

It’s important to remember that not all AC units are created equal. Some are more energy efficient than others, meaning they use less energy to operate. Here’s a look at the lifespan of different types of AC units:

Window-mounted AC units typically have a life expectancy of 10-12 years. Central air conditioning units can last anywhere from 15-20 years, depending on the make and model. Portable air conditioners typically have a lifespan of around 5-7 years.

There are a few things you can do to extend the life of your AC unit: keep it clean and free of debris, run it regularly in cool or cold mode (not during peak hours), and avoid using excessive amounts of energy when cooling your home.

If you’re looking to save money on your energy bill, consider opting for an AC unit that’s more energy efficient. It will use less energy to operate, which will help you save money on your monthly electric bill.
