Air conditioners are one of the most essential devices in homes and offices. It can easily be adjusted to the room’s temperature for us to be more comfortable. However, even the most high-tech brand of an AC will still come to its end.
Wait! Does it mean my air conditioning unit has a maximum lifespan?
Yes, there is. According to AC manufacturers and technicians, air conditioners can last for on average of 10 to 15 years. This can be shortened or lengthened depending on the care and treatment applied to it.
