Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs):
Q: What is the lifespan of an air conditioning unit?
A: Most air conditioning units typically last anywhere between 15 to 20 years with proper maintenance and care. Even if you don’t suspect any problems with your current unit, it is generally a good idea to have it inspected, serviced, and cleaned once a year – ideally in the spring or early summer – to ensure it operates efficiently and is ready to cool your home when you need it most.
Q: How can I save money on air conditioning?
A: Here is a list of factors affecting electricity usage and air conditioning operating costs:
1) The size of your home. Larger homes require a larger air conditioning unit, which in turn draws more electricity to power it.
2) How much your air conditioner is used. Some people cool their house on a 24/7 basis, while others prefer to use it in the evenings and throughout the night to make it easier to sleep during the heat of the summer. If you limit your usage to only the hottest days and switch the unit off when temperatures are more bearable, you’ll save more money.
3) How low the thermostat temperature is set; the lower the temperature setting, the more electricity required to run your unit to maintain that temperature.
4) How well insulated the home is; well-insulated homes help to retain the cool air that is circulated by your air conditioner and will keep warm air out. It goes without saying that you should make sure to keep all windows and doors closed as well!
5) Weather & climate, as the hotter the temperature is, the more use you will have for your air conditioner.
6) Peak hour usage should also be considered, as electricity prices are higher during peak hours.
8) Landscaping elements such as the number of trees and shade around your home can affect the internal temperature, therefore impacting air conditioner usage.
