How Long Will My AC Last?

Monday, September 9th, 2019

That’s a good question, but hopefully, one we can shed a little light on. Air conditioners don’t last forever, but like any good mattress or home appliance, you’ll want it to last as many years as possible. So how long exactly does the typical air conditioner last?
