How long will my air conditioner system last?
As a general rule of thumb, air conditioning systems that are installed and well-maintained throughout their service life have a lifespan of 15 to 20 years before needing to be replaced.
Should I change the air filter regularly?
Yes, homeowners are encouraged to change the air filter in their cooling system at least once every three months, if not more. As you use your cooling system, the air filter becomes prone to the buildup of dust, hair, dirt, pet dander, and other airborne contaminants. If the air filter does not get cleaned, your unit will need to work harder to produce the same amount of cooling, which in turn leads to more wear and tear on your unit and higher energy costs. At the same time, a dirty air filter can also lower your indoor air quality, which can lead to prolonged allergies and cold-like symptoms.

What should be the seer rating of my AC unit?
The ideal SEER rating for your air conditioner is determined by factors such as climate, budget, and energy efficiency objectives. In hot environments, a SEER of 16 or higher maximizes efficiency, while SEER 18+ is recommended for energy-conscious homeowners. Those on a tight budget can opt for SEER 13 to 14, which meets the minimum standards. The highest rating may not be required for infrequent users.

Why is my air conditioner system leaking water?
Your air conditioner may be leaking water for a variety of reasons. The most common cause is a blocked or dirty condensate drain line, which hinders water from draining away correctly. A frozen evaporator coil, which is frequently caused by limited airflow or low refrigerant levels, could also be the cause. Additionally, an improper installation, a clogged air filter, or a faulty condensate pump are all factors that lead to leaks.
Ultimately, the best thing you can do is reach out to a repair or service technician who can come inspect your unit to determine the root cause of the problem. Shines Energy is available 24/7/365 days a year, including after-hours, weekends, and holidays, at no extra cost for repairs and maintenance!
