I was under the impression that heating and cooling systems were supposed to last for 15 to 20 years! It’s what I had heard all my life.
It’s also what I experienced quite often in my life until recently.
You see, 7 years ago, I found a task down in the southeast. I wasn’t particularally enthusiastic about the hot and muggy weather I would have to be subjected to, but the paycheck was calling me; Besides, I would be close to the beach, and who would not love that? I ended up purchasing a apartment that was modestly-sized but on a wonderful piece of property. The apartment was well-ran tests on, although I decided to have a brand new cooling system installed, because the old one didn’t entirely seem up to snuff, but like I said, I fully expected this new cooling system to last at least 15 years. So, you can imagine my surprise when my Heating & Air Conditioning serviceman told myself and others that my air conditioning system was showing signs of its age just last week! It’s tplot that I had been calling him out a couple extra times this year for one problem or another, although I didn’t believe that it was an indication that my air conditioning system was on its way out! I protested the system that it was already dying at 7 years of age, but he explained to myself and others that it’s weird down here in the south. I had been using my air conditioning system almost always, and although I had been trying to keep it well ran tests on, an air conditioning system may particularly well simply run out of juice faster when it is in heavy use throughout the year!
