These occurrences almost always signal a problem that can and should be fixed by a professional.

However, this blog post isn’t about those noises or smells.

How Long Should an AC Last Here?

Monday, June 20th, 2022

This is a really good question, and one that a lot of our customers seem to ask us. It’s true—you can expect an air conditioner to last a different amount of time down here in Arkansas than in New Hampshire or Maine. We simply use them a lot more, and our summers are pretty brutal with humidity, so they’re running for about a month or two longer than other systems up north.

So, how much should you be willing to compromise the longevity of your system because of the climate you live in? Well, that’s where things get complicated. As long as you invest in yearly maintenance and call for AC repair in Pine Bluff, AR when it’s needed, your AC might last as long as a system that’s used less.

However, if you run your system through every boiling hot summer we get, but it isn’t maintained or repaired properly, then it might last half as long as it should.
