How Long Do Residential AC Units Last?

Residential Air Conditioning Service in Tallahassee and the surrounding areas

When you live in Florida, you understand how important it is to have a high quality, reliable air conditioning system at home. Residential AC units can last as long as 15 to 20 years, but that is under ideal circumstances and with appropriate maintenance. There are three major factors that influence the lifespan of residential AC, which include the amount of use, the maintenance, and the elements.

In warmer, humid climates, the external factors and high demand put on the air conditioning system can shorten its lifespan. The condensing unit of the AC system is outside of the home, meaning it is exposed to the elements of the region. Coastal, salty air can get into the condensing coil and cause general wear and tear to the AC system. Some brands are better than others when it comes to combating salty air.
