Frequently Asked Questions About Air Conditioning

When it comes to air conditioner questions, we’ve heard them all. Here are some of the most common questions our customers ask.

What is the average life span of an air conditioner?

You can typically expect your AC system to last between 15 to 20 years; however, there are several factors that come into play. Regular maintenance such as replacing your filter every three months and scheduling a seasonal tune-up will keep your air conditioner working its longest and prevent the need for premature AC replacement.

Why is my air conditioner making strange noises?

While air conditioners are designed to make minimal noise while operating, there may come a time when yours starts to produce some funny sounds. The specific noise can be very telling of what the underlying problem may be. A few of the noises you may hear, along with their probable diagnosis, include:

  1. If your unit is making a high-pitched, squealing noise, the issue is usually related to the connector belt, especially if your system is on the older side.
  2. If your system is emitting a buzzing sound, chances are you have loose parts, missing or broken isolation feet, refrigerant leaks, or a malfunctioning compressor.
  3. This noise typically indicates that your system’s bearings have worn down in the air handle motor. These will need to be replaced quickly so your motor doesn’t burn out, leading to more costly repairs or replacement.
What is a ductless mini-split?

A mini-split is a modern approach to keeping your home cool using a room-by-room system rather than a whole-house system. Mini-splits are placed in individual rooms, allowing for personalized adjustability while still offering quiet and effective air conditioning solutions.

How often should I change my air filter?

You should typically plan to replace your air filter every 90 days; however, you may need to replace it as often as every 30 days. High-end filters may claim that they last upwards of six months, but you should factor in your unique home situation. If you have pets, family members with asthma, or children, you should err on the side of caution and replace your filter more frequently.

If your AC system is making strange noises or you need help replacing your air filter, contact the experts at Sherlock Plumbing, Heating & Air today! Call us at 760-295-5014 or reach out online to schedule your services!
