Do A/C units last less time in South Florida?
by: Island A/C Team

We get this question often, especially from snowbirds or people who have recently relocated to South Florida: "Do A/C units last less time in South Florida?". Simply put: yes. The life expectancy of an air conditioning system is affected by 4 main factors: the quality of the unit itself, the quality of its installation, how well it is maintained, and how many hours/year it runs.

So if you consider a good quality air conditioning system, that has been properly installed and has been well maintained regularly, the more usage it gets the less time it will last. However, a poorly installed air conditionnig system might last half as long considering the same usage conditions.

In South Florida where summers get very humid and hot, air conditioners run many hours out of the day and have to overcome outside temperatures upwards of 90 degrees. This amount of effort will cause more wear and tear than if the unit was running only sporadically.

Island Air Conditioning has been performing quality air conditioning installations for more than 10 years. With a team of experienced technicians specialized in installing and maintaining air conditioners in South Florida, Island Air Conditioning is able to provide timely, and high quality air conditioning service in Boca Raton and beyond.
