How Long do AC Units Last?

A frequent question that we get asked, especially when someone is looking at needing to purchase a new AC unit or having a new AC Installation, is how long do AC Units last? On average they last between 10-12 years. As your air conditioner gets older, it may start to require more frequent repairs. If bigger parts, like a condenser or compressor go out, then it may cost more for an AC repair than it costs to simply replace the unit.


If you find yourself in a place where you are wondering whether your air conditioning unit can just last a little while longer until you can save some money, then you should know that when it comes to replacing your air conditioning unit the first thing we look at is age. In general, units that are more than 10 years old should be replaced with newer, more efficient models.


Other signs that you may need to replace your air conditioner instead of spending more money on AC Repairs:

  • AC Needs More Frequent Repairs/li>
  • Energy Bills are Rising
  • Hot & Cold Spots in Your Home or Office
  • AC is Running Constantly and Temperature Still Doesn’t Go Down
