When you have had an air conditioner as long as I have, you do not expect to see it go out on you, and i will be the first to admit that I am a bit of an outdated timer, I have lived in the same locale for over 50 years now.
In those 50 years, I have only had the Heating, Ventilation & A/C updated once! They tell you that you need to frequently have a heating & cooling serviceman come out to inspect your air conditioning unit, but however, I am not the kind of woman to do this as often as I believe I should. I do not see much of the point, our air conditioning & our furnace are both fairly current & do not have any kind of concerns; As a matter of fact, the last time I had a heating & air conditioner professional out to do anything to our heating & cooling elements was 5 years ago, & that was to change an air filter. The concern occured Last month after I had only just returned home from the grocery store. I noticed the air was unusually hit & I went over to inspect the temperature control, only to see that the air wasn’t on & when I attempted to turn it on, it would not come on. I made the appointment with our Heating, Ventilation & A/C provider & thankfully it wasn’t any exhausting news. The air conditioner did indeed need a repair, however it was only a minor upgrade. I was relieved to find this out. I was unsure if I would have been able to afford a much larger repair.
