How Long Will My A/C Last?
by: Island A/C Team

How long will my A/C last? Over the years we have heard this questions numerous times and our answer is always the same: it depends. Some units, when properly maintained, can last for up to 10, even 15 years.

Several factors influence the longevity of your air conditioning system. The most simple one, which can in some cases double the life of your unit, is also the least expensive: change the filter. By changing your air conditioning filter regularly, you ensure that the amount of dust and contaminants entering the system is kept to a minimum, ensuring the insides of your air handler remain as clean as possible.

Another factor, which is just as important as how often you change your A/C filter is: is your A/C system right for your home? Having the proper size air conditioning system for your home means that the unit will not be overworked, and therefore have a longer life cycle. If you aren't sure if your A/C system is right for your home, you should ask a professional right away.

The third most important factor which will influence how long your A/C system will last is how often you have your air conditioning unit professionally maintained. Having your A/C system professionally maintained will not only prevent breakage, it will also extend its lifespan.
