How Long Does An Air Conditioner Last 

The average lifespan of the average central air conditioner is between 15 and 20 years of age. While between 15 and 20 years is a decent amount of time, there are ways that we can help to prolong the life of our air conditioners and avoid a sudden need for emergency repair altogether. Some ways that you can help to prolong the lifespan of your air conditioner include: 

  • Changing your air filter at least once every 90 days 
  • Scheduling annual preventive maintenance 
  • Keeping your outdoor unit clean and free of debris 
  • Calling for repairs as soon as you notice something is wrong 
  • Installing a smart thermostat

Signs You Need To Book AC Repair 

When you first install your new air conditioning system, it’s important to pay attention to its behaviour to discern what is normal and abnormal. If you have a good understanding of your AC, you can better tell when it’s time to call for emergency repair. Some common signs that your air conditioner could use repair include: 

  • Abnormal or very loud noises 
  • Unusual or unpleasant smells 
  • Water leaking around the outdoor unit 
  • Ice forming around the indoor unit 
  • Increased utility bills 
  • Uneven cooling 
  • Continuous short-cycling

Signs Your Furnace Needs Replacement 

While it’s understandable that most homeowners want to get the most out of their current furnace before investing in a new one, it’s important to know when to let go of your current furnace and finally replace it. Choosing to replace an old or inefficient furnace often leads to the homeowner saving money on energy bills and repair. The most common signs that your furnace needs to be replaced include: 

  • Your furnace is over fifteen years of age 
  • You notice rust, corrosion, or general deterioration on your furnace
  • Your energy bills are beginning to become more expensive
  • Your furnace is in constant need of repair and maintenance
  • Your home isn’t being kept consistently warm or there is a presence of cold spots where there once weren’t 
  • Your furnace is making several strange and loud noises including hissing, popping, or rattling

What To Do Before Calling For Emergency Furnace Repair 

When you notice that your furnace isn’t working, it can be very easy to panic and immediately call for emergency repair. However, sometimes your furnace isn’t working due to a very simple and easily fixable issue or mistake. Before calling for emergency repair, first, try these easy tasks: 

  • Ensure that your furnace wasn’t accidentally switched off 
  • Ensure that your thermostat wasn’t accidentally set to COOL instead of HEAT
  • Change your furnace filter 
  • Check to see if your furnace tripped its breaker 
  • Check to see if you need to change your thermostat’s batteries 
  • Ensure that your furnace’s exterior intake pipe isn’t blocked with snow, leaves, or other natural debris
