How often should my air conditioner be serviced?
Heating and cooling professionals say that even if you do not suspect that your air conditioning unit has problems, you need to have it serviced and inspected at least once every year. This will ensure that it operates at maximum efficiency. It will be ready to cool the house in the months when you require it most.
What will happen if I do not do any servicing?
What is the estimated electrical consumption of an air conditioner per month?
It depends on the air conditioner model you are using and the usage pattern. The approximated electrical consumption can be calculated by using the following formula: Estimated Electrical Consumption = Input (kW) X No. of hours used X No. of days per month X Current Utility Rate.
What is the average lifespan of a residential air conditioner?
The lifespan of the air conditioner will be reduced, cooling coil and rotor will be clogged and water leakage may happen. Thus, this will reduce the performance and cooling efficiency of the air conditioner.
The standards do not require you to change your existing central air conditioning units, and replacement parts and services should still be available for your home's systems. The "lifespan" of a central air conditioner is about 15 to 20 years.
