Is It Finally Time to Replace Your AC?

August 10th, 2020

We hate to break the news to you, but someone has to. Air conditioners don’t last forever. There’s just no caveat to this. Perhaps 50 years in the future there will be air conditioners with technology that can last 50 years, but that technology just isn’t here yet. Instead, we need to work within finite timeframes.

Let’s talk about whether or not its the right time to replace your air conditioner.
