How Long do AC Fan Motors Last?

TechXpert verified by Ken Kontra

The average lifespan of an AC fan motor is about 12 years. An AC fan motor can last more than 12 years if it’s kept clean and cooled as needed. On the other hand, without annual maintenance checkups, your fan motor may only survive between one and three years.

Age Is Not Just A Number

Time flies when your AC fan motor is cheering you and your house on. But ignoring the age of your fan motor can eventually lead to a strain on other parts of your AC system. So, your fan motor’s age plays an important role when it comes to durability (along with regular cleaning and maintenance).

Keep It Clean

It’s important to keep your fan motor clean to avoid constant repairs and replacements. Depending on how or where your AC system is located, debris can get stuck in the fan motor blades and break it. You’ll want to schedule annual maintenance for your fan motor to keep it alive and healthy for 12 or more years.
