How Long Will My Air Conditioner Last?

An air conditioner that is properly maintained can last for approximately 15 years. Once your air conditioner is older than this, it will become less efficient and it may make more sense to opt for a replacement—you’ll recoup the cost in savings on your energy expenses.

Your air conditioner is more likely to reach its complete service life when you schedule routine maintenance. Otherwise, your system will likely experience more frequent breakdowns that develop into more severe and costly issues, which can shorten its life expectancy.

Take care of your air conditioning equipment to get the most out of it and enjoy many years of its successful operation.

How Can I Lower My Energy Bills?

The best way to reduce energy use and expenses is by upgrading your equipment to the most energy-efficient system within your budget. The less energy the system needs to use to keep you cool, the more money you save!

When selecting a new air conditioning system, pay special attention to the Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio (SEER) rating. SEER measures the efficiency of air conditioning systems. A higher SEER rating indicates a more efficient system.

As of January 2023, SEER2 is the new standard, so opt for 14 or higher for air conditioning systems here in Arizona and throughout the Southwest.

How Much Money Can a New Air Conditioner Save You?

Our SEER2 (Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio) energy savings calculator can help determine how much you could save on your utility bills. Simply enter your current unit’s SEER value and compare it to a newer, more efficient SEER2 unit. You can even customize it to better match your home’s system for a more accurate calculation.

“Met up with the folks at Hamstra last October during an emergency call. They promptly came over and fixed an issue. So, pleased, I enrolled in their Silver Program. Very pleased with the team.”

- Robert S.

“My technician, Dave, was professional and friendly. I was very pleased that he told me about a service plan for my yearly heat/cooling service that SAVED me money! Thank you for the continual good service I receive every time Hamstra comes to my home.”

- Judy B.

“The team came on time, performed well, and cleaned up thoroughly. It looks like an excellent installation and removal of the old equipment was performed.
There was a slight glitch with the crane. Although it was arranged, and your engineer measured the necessary distance from the street, the crane operator said the outrigger would have to be on the driveway and I had to sign a waiver for damage. I refused to do so, as I had been assured the driveway would not be in use for this. As it turned out, once he actually measured the distance from the street, his crane was sufficient. Once we passed this hurdle, his work was also very good.”

“For My Hamstra Family:

Gabriel and Andres have been working so hard all morning. They bring their caring hearts and goodness to each task. They work in the hot morning sun on the air conditioner and in the garage to exchange old machines for new. The poet in me would say that they tend their “garden.” They take time to explain what they are doing and they take pride in their beautiful work.

These two amazing human beings deserve every accolade I can write. I want to take a moment to acknowledge such hard, hard work. I have been with your company for approximately twenty years, and in that time, I have only known compassionate, hard working, and gentle souls who work for Hamstra. There is no mystery. Your company has a heart. In a world that is often unkind, your workers like Gabriel and Andres take pride in their beautiful work.

They deserve every accolade that I can offer. From your gentle, artist Lisa to the compassionate heart of John Roelle, to these two fine, hard working human beings, Andres and Gabriel, I am profoundly blessed to be a part of the Hamstra Family over all these years. In a world that has often gone mad with unconscionable war and governments that can not work together, there is hope when two young men, Gabriel and Andres work so hard & take pride in their beautiful work. The earth is blessed.

While I am writing this, they are still hard at work. They are the future and they give me hope. We are all blessed. So, on this day breaking, thank you once again to all the Hamstra Family. You touch all our lives with your goodness and hearts that are wider than the world is wide. I know you will share this letter with them. They deserve to be praised. Their goodness makes me hopeful for the future.

Elise Curry
They are still working! Please take time, as you always do, to acknowledge Gabriel and Andres.”
