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.

Scott Dale was very professional. He answered our concerns and questions. He took time to explain the necessity of the repairs. Just by talking to him, we felt confident with him doing the repairs.

Hobaica has now installed 2 ac units for us-each time they have been exceptional to work with. They are fair and honest with their quotes. Andy Hobaica is always available to his customers and they may have the friendliest and most competent employees. I highly recommend.Just had Hobaica come out to fix an old unit, bedroom side of house-it’s been 111-115 degrees. Ryan W came out on Fri evening to evaluate and he was back on Mon to fix! Thanks Ryan, greatly appreciated

We called Hobaica for HVAC repair and they came out the same day, after waiting for 2 other companies to call back after 3 days (and still no call). Ron J. was on time, quickly diagnosed the problem and had our AC fixed quickly. We will use them again and highly recommend them!

Travis Vanau was our technician and he was awesome!! We have had an AC company come out now twice through our home warranty and both times have been told everything was fine. Travis was here for maybe 15-20 minutes and informed us that it looks like we have an AC leak, and walked us through the necessary steps for proper repair. He did a recharge for us and is coming back later this week to better identify the potential leak in our system! We can’t thank you enough, Travis!

Hobaica came out on June 8th and 11th, 2021. The first visit was for a/c seasonal maintenance. Scott Dale did a great job explaining what might be happening with an intermittent fan noise. I'm going to record it on video the next time it happens, and call them.The second visit was to install a new hose bib. I asked for a quote during Scott's visit, and decided to book it for later in the week. Travis Vonau arrived on Friday and took care of it. All of the Hobaica team members are knowledgeable and friendly. Thanks!

Last week Ryan Waters was our technician sent to do routine maintenance work on our a/c unit. He arrived within the time stated. He was very courteous when we spoke to him & promptly got to work. When he finished he explained what he had done & some further issue that needed to be addressed. He put in a work order & he was back out this week to complete the service. We are extremely happy with Hobaica & Mr Waters. Ryan Waters is an excellent technician, very knowledgeable, friendly & professional.
