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.

“The Tech, Hector, arrived on time, introduced himself and reviewed the reason for the call. He didn’t waste any time, except to answer my questions, and completed the work in less time than I was given. The whole experience was far better than the company I was using before . The price was less than other quotes. I will recommend Hamstra to my neighbors”

- Jake K.

“I have been a regular customer and service plan member for about 10 years. HAMSTRA installed my current system and has done maintenance checkups twice a year. It is such a good feeling to know that I can trust them to do the work well and at a fair price. This week, in the middle of a 100-degree plus week, I had a capacitor go out and they sent a repairman the next day. He replaced the part under warranty and we were back to normal in less than 24 hours. Thanks, HAMSTRA, for having my back!!”

- Heidi H.

“I was given the 12-5 pm window and was called at 2 and a half hour notice. Caden was on time and very professional. He did our Summer check up and told me everything was working well.
I would highly recommend.”

- John H.

“My technician Houston came out and performed my annual bronze service. I have bitched for two years that my gaspack was undersized as it never shut off during the hot summer. Houston found an air leak on the outside duct work return air side and repaired it. Now I have a properly installed and operating system. I salute Houston for his time and professionalism on my project. I can't say the same about the rest of the staff at Hamstra. Two years is to long to get it right.”

- Mark P.

“Great service… the service person introduced himself, let me know what he was going to do, did not complain about my dog’s barking, in fact he worked quietly so as not to agitate the dog and when he made his recommendations he offered possible solutions.”

- Cristina L.

“I had some storm damage which included damage to the electrical line for my air conditioner. Hamstra called me back right away, set up an appointment and had the AC back up and running in a few hours. Great customer service from everyone!”
