Affordable Air & Heat Is Proud To Offer AC Replacement Services

Contractors will agree that there’s really no specific timeframe on when a customer’s HVAC system will last. It all depends on a number of factors, including use, environmental issues, weather discrepancies, and system maintenance.

Occupant behavior can also affect the overall lifespan of your HVAC equipment as well. Things such as scented laundry products, personal hygiene products, air fresheners, and corrosive contaminants can affect air quality. Constantly opening the door or changing the thermostat, and on-off cycling typically makes your AC do extra work. The compressor works the hardest when it’s on start-up mode.

Based on the factors presented above, we can safely conclude that the common lifetime range of an adequately-sized and properly installed AC unit will be somewhere around an eight-year lifespan. HVAC unit components wear out and break down over time, or experience a reduction in overall efficiency which can hasten the expected life of the system.

When Is The Best Time To Have AC Systems Replaced?

An appliance that has been working for approximately two-thirds of its expected lifespan, and requires repair costs beyond 25 percent of the full replacement cost would have reached the end of its life. If the essential components, i.e., the refrigerant is no longer supported or has become obsolete, then it’s time to have it replaced with a newer model.

Technological advancements have extended life cycles of AC units greatly. The more efficient an HVAC system, the better it performs and the less money you’ll need to shell out for operational and maintenance costs.
