Florida has one of the most hostile environments for Air Conditioning systems in the United States. With our high temperatures in the summer combined with the high level of humidity our systems need to extract from the air in our homes, problems are almost certain to arise. Coastal Florida areas can have an even more difficult time with AC systems, as the salt in the air can cause damage to the coils.
That said, every AC system is different. Some systems, after being properly maintained, can last for 15 years or more. As a rule though, you should plan for your system to last anywhere between 10-15 years, provided it is a quality system that has been properly installed.
AC systems are what is known as “applied equipment”, which means that even a quality system, if improperly installed, can cause issues for the homeowner down the road. An inexperienced installer can reduce the lifespan of the system or the efficiency at which it operates. This is one of the reasons we focus so much on quality of installation at Nice Air.
If you would like more information about what we do to ensure that your system is installed correctly, or the training that our installers must go through before handing your system, please contact us today.
