We rely on our air conditioners to help keep us cool through hot Iowa summers and by making an effort to get your AC serviced each year, you can not only make it work efficiently for the upcoming season, but for years to come.
An air conditioner’s lifespan can range from 15-20 years, and just because you may have a 10-year-old unit, doesn’t mean you need to replace it yet. Having a professional work on your unit yearly helps make it more efficient over time and increase its longevity.
If dirt, dust, and allergens collect in your air filter and unit, it will take a lot more work on the unit’s part to circulate cold air through your home. Midwest Comfort technicians are experienced in air filter and air conditioner cleaning to help your AC produce more, with less energy.
There are a wide variety of part warranties. The industry standard is ten years, depending on if your equipment warranty was registered. We are able to do warranty work for most brands on the market, and we will check your unit to see if it is still under warranty before charging you for repairs.
It can be hard to determine whether your AC issues are just because of a faulty part, or if it’s because of a whole unit issue. If your air conditioner is under 10 years old, we normally recommend trying to get your AC repaired rather than replaced. Our Midwest Comfort technician will inspect your air conditioner, diagnose the issue, and recommend the best course of action while keeping your budget in mind.
There are several deciding factors to consider when replacing your air conditioner. If your air conditioner is more than ten years old and repair costs are approaching 30% of the upgrading to a newer, more efficient system. Depending on the Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio (SEER), upgrading could save you 20%-40% on heating and cooling costs.
