#1 Schedule Maintenance Every 6 Months:
Lack of maintenance is one of the top reasons AC systems breakdown or fail early. In Arizona, this is especially important. Our hotter climate creates a lot of wear and tear on our systems. Semi-annual inspections, tune-ups and cleanings are required to help reduce breakdowns. Keeping your AC system properly maintained will also help improve efficiency for improved comfort and lower cooling costs.

#2 Replace Dirty Filters:
Dirty filters make your system work harder and longer to keep your home cool. The dirtier it is, the more resistance your AC system will have to work against. This causes extra strain on your system and can lead to breakdowns (and in some cases, system failure).
#3 Give Your System Adequate Air Flow:
Similar to a dirty filter, your system needs adequate air flow to operate properly. Trim the foliage around your outdoor unit back by at least 12-18 inches to allow adequate airflow (note… this is also true for heat pumps).
If your system is in the attic, allow at least 18-24 inches of clearance around it.
The quick answer is, “Maybe.”
Before we can provide a recommendation, there is a lot to consider, such as:
- Age of the System
- Quality of the System Installation When it Was New
- Cost of the Repair & the Repair History
- The Maintenance History
- And, System Performance (Efficiency)
After our service technician has had a chance to thoroughly diagnose the system, they will be able to make recommendations. Just ask!
