Did you know that the average lifespan of most air conditioners is between 10 and 15 years? However, if you take good care of your A/C unit, you might be able to extend its lifespan. Regular maintenance performed by a qualified HVAC repair specialist will help catch any small problems that need to be fixed before they get worse. You can also have your HVAC company clean your ducts, which will allow cool air to flow into your home more freely. If you are just having an air conditioner installed, find out if it can be placed on the shady side of your home so it’s not subject to glaring sunlight more than necessary. Check out this infographic from Estes Heating & Air Conditioning in Atlanta to learn more about prolonging the life of your air conditioner. Please share with your family and friends, and stay cool this summer!
