Now is the perfect time to get your air conditioner replaced, so you can have it installed and ready to go before the hot weather returns. Wondering what you should know about replacing your air conditioning? We can help.

#1: Know an air conditioner’s life span.
Heating and cooling systems generally have a lifespan of 10 to 20 years. After a decade, it will start showing signs of its age and may need repair services more than it used to. If you have a unit that is more than a decade old and you’ve already started spending money on expensive repairs, there will be a time where you will have to determine if it is more cost effective to replace the whole machine.

#3: Know what it takes to maintain the system.
Knowing what it takes to upkeep the life of the air conditioner is key. Annual preventative maintenance is an important part of making sure the system is running at peak efficiency.

Regular maintenance ensures that you get the longest lifespan out of your air conditioning investment. Spring is the perfect time to upgrade your air conditioning system.
