The Life and Times of Your A/C Unit

The average air conditioning unit life span is 12-15 years. However, air conditioners can have shorter life if not maintained regularly, installed incorrectly or if the unit size is not sized properly for the area it is serving.  And when an A/C unit stops working, it almost always seems to be at a very inconvenient time, like he hottest day of the summer, when the home owner is on their way to an important meeting or when guests are scheduled to arrive at any moment.

It should be noted we have seen many units work great for 15+ years due to a steady routine of regular maintenance and care, which started with a proper installation.

On any given hot day, an A/C is pushed to work at its maximum potential, may overload and stop working. Keep your eye out for any abnormal noises or temperature swings as you’re A/C may stop working.

The first thing to check is the age of you’re A/C. On the side of the unit, find the manufacturer name, model & serial numbers. Do an internet search to find your unit age. If it is older than ten years, the A/C unit may be near the end of its life and require replacement soon.

Another sign is higher humidity in your home.  Your A/C is supposed to remove humidity from the air. If you notice that the house is more humid than usual your A/C may be nearing the end of its life span. Also check around the air conditioner for rust or deterioration. These are additional signs letting you know you may have to replace your air conditioning unit soon.

The seasonal energy efficiency ratio (SEER) is a ratio that measures how efficient the air conditioning unit is. Older units will be less efficient than newer units. The unit’s inefficiency will first show as a higher electricity bill. If your electricity bill is higher this summer than it was last summer, the problem could be that you’re A/C is losing its efficiency.

Do not wait for your A/C unit to die out on you. If any of the above signs start showing, I recommend replacing your unit as soon as possible. Then you can treat yourself to a cooler house and lower utility bills.

Call the Comfort Specialists at Hobaica Services to help you determine when you’re A/C might be in need of replacing.

J. Miranda was so helpful and replied to our request right away! Called other places for emergency repair on our AC and they wouldn't be able to send someone for 3 days! Anyone who lives in AZ knows waiting that long is not an option especially during the summer! J. Miranda was friendly and took the time to explain what needed fixing. Will recommend! Thank you again!

Great experience receiving estimate. Quick scheduling of service. Knowledgeable service techs. Most importantly, they delivered peace of mind, which can't be purchased.

Great guys to work with. Knowledgable, efficient, professional.A follow up concern we had about our new unit was responded to quickly & well. Nothing wrong with the equipment, but it was retested and we were educated more about our new system by our tech.

Grayson Vu was a very knowledgeable and professional service tech. He was on time and took his time checking things out. He even recommended something to improve our air flow and comfort. Great company and great rep!

John and Jared came out today to take a look at my air conditioning unit. I live in a condo where I can’t see my unit but noticed some water dripping from the roof. They weren’t just on time, they were a little early which helped free up the rest of my day.They found that the system was running as it should be and let me know that the water was dripping because the condensation line was disconnected. Super easy fix with a little bit of glue, and they did not create worry where there was none just to add to the bill.As if that wasn’t good enough, they were incredibly nice and easy to talk to. Not nice because it’s required- just really genuine people. I was not expecting to have such an easy and inexpensive experience in Phoenix during hot, muggy monsoon season. Thank you both for making my day!

We recently had our air conditioning go out on Tuesday and on Friday a new unit was installed. The service has been fantastic. Could not have asked for a faster more friendly company.Zach and Gio were amazing in getting the unit installed and walking us through the new thermostat.

Grayson came out and was on time, and very nice. He took extra time to diagnose a potential problem, and even re-secured some wire mesh (to keep birds out) that had been blown off from the wind. He answered all my questions, will do business with hobaica again.
