Western Indiana summers can get rather hot and steamy, as anyone who has lived here for more than a year can attest to. That means it’s important to keep your cooling system in good repair, so it keeps your home or business cool and comfortable during the height of the warm weather season.
However, like any mechanical system, your cooling system will likely need a repair or two eventually. How much do you really know about air conditioning repairs?
Surprising air conditioning repair facts
- Not all air conditioning repairs are expensive. If you’re cooling system is failing to keep your home or business cool, it may not require an expensive fix.
Some AC problems are caused by a dirt-clogged system, faulty duct work or an issue with your thermostat–all things that are easy and relatively inexpensive to fix.
- Many industries wouldn’t exist without the advent of air conditioning. There probably wouldn’t be movie theaters, Vegas casinos or frozen foods without air conditioning, just to name a few examples
- The average lifespan of an air conditioning system is 10 to 15 years. When you get to this threshold, it’s time to be saving for a new system.
It may just not make economic sense to repair your old one. Besides, increases in technology will likely continue and make your 10-year-old system less energy efficient than a new system.
