An average air conditioning unit’s lifespan is about 15 years, with some newer models lasting up to 18 years. In order for your unit stay in working order as long as possible, there are many factors that come into play. If you are installing a new ac unit, the quality of the installation will directly impact your new unit’s lifespan. In order to prolong the life of your current air conditioner, it’s important to keep up with annual maintenance to ensure it stays in top shape.
Different climates will also affect the lifespan of your unit. With the tropical climate we have in South Florida, most air conditioning units run year round which causes them to exude more energy and requires more upkeep. You also want to ensure you have the right sized unit for your home so that it is cooling your indoor air properly without having to work harder and longer, cutting years off its expected lifespan.
If your unit begins to make unfamiliar noises, emits foul odors, or fails to cool down your home, it may be time to for a replacement ac unit. All Year Cooling specializes in air conditioning unit installations and repair. We’ve installed more than 200,000 units to date and understand how important air conditioning is in South Florida where temperature can reach the high 90s.
