How Long Should A Trane AC Unit Last?

How Long Should A Trane AC Unit Last

A common question that comes up with home and business owners, looking for a new air conditioning unit is, how long can I expect this unit to last? The good news for those who choose to go with a Trane AC unit, is that,these days the expected lifespan for the unit is 15-20 years. Many owners elect to replace units closer to 10-15 in order to upgrade to a more efficient model. At Autumn Mechanical, we work hard to make sure every Trane unit we install meets the unique needs of the space it is installed in. This means ensuring you have a large enough model for your space, without overpaying for a unit with too much power.


How To Make Your Trane Unit Last
The best way to ensure you are getting the most out of your air conditioning unit, as far as the quality of air comfort and lifespan, is by having professional air conditioning maintenance performed regularly.  This will keep your unit in excellent shape, and prevent small problems from becoming major problems in a small matter of time. Some of the main functions you can expect to be performed during your preventive maintenance tune-ups are as follows:


-Monitor volts/amps on fan motor

-Inspect filtration system

-Test water condensate and drain lines

-Check refrigerant for system leaks

-Tighten all electrical connections

-Check the blower wheel for balance and dust

-Check the pressure for the refrigerant

-Monitor the compressor for voltage

-Inspect the fan blades for cracks and balance

-Wash the condenser coil and remove any trash


Air conditioners are high-end appliances that we rely on to keep us comfortable, especially in the Houston heat. It is important to understand that these appliances are complex machines, with many various parts that all must be running efficiently and working together in order to deliver you with the cooling comfort you desire. Much like vehicles, air conditioning units require regular maintenance in order to meet your standard of performance and to protect your investment in them.


Treat your Trane right with regular maintenance from Autumn Mechanical. We recommend annual or bi-annual tune-ups depending on your usage and space. If you have a large commercial business, with running air around the clock, you may need more frequent maintenance to keep your unit running smooth and lasting for as long as it can. Do not wait for a breakdown to have your air conditioning unit serviced, instead invest in preventive maintenance today.
