How long will a central air conditioning system last? It depends on a number of factors. If the system was poorly installed and didn’t receive routine maintenance annually, then it will probably need to be replaced after a mere 5 years. On the other hand, an air conditioner that had a great install from experienced technicians and which never missed an annual spring maintenance visit can often run for more than 20 years.

If you have a central air conditioning system for your home, you expect it to spread cooling evenly through your home. That’s what a central AC is designed for, after all. But what if you notice that some rooms are much hotter than others? This uneven cooling is often a warning sign that the air conditioner is struggling to do its job.

Rooney wrote this little ditty to help us all celebrate Independence Day, see what you think of it…
Oh, say can you see by the dawn’s early light
What so proudly we hailed at the twilight’s last gleaming?
Whose broad stripes and bright stars thru the perilous fight,
O’er the ramparts we watched were so gallantly streaming?
And the rocket’s red glare, the bombs bursting in air,
Gave proof through the night that our flag was still there.
Oh, say does that star-spangled banner yet wave
O’er the land of the free and the home of the brave?
