The attached pictures are of Trane equipment. The outdoor A/C unit was in installed in 1984 and has been in service for 31 years. The thermostat was installed 1977 and has been in service for over 38 years. Is this typical?
How long can I expect my A/C – HVAC Equipment to last? That is a very good question and can be challenging to answer.
But, here are some averages:
Condensing Unit – Outdoor A/C Unit = 15 years. (How much it is used and the environment it is in makes all the difference!)
Heat Pump – A/C Outdoor Unit = 12 years. (Double duty for heating and cooling your home.)
Thermostat = 5 years. (Who uses it? Home Owners, Children, Employees, the general public? They all make the difference!)
Gas Furnace = 18 years. ( Once again is determined by usage, environment and how it’s configured with the overall heating needs of the structure it is heating.)
Air Handler w/Electric Heat = 10 years for the electric heat strips and 18 years for the air handler it’s self. (How and where is it used, environment, set-up with heat pump or whether it is used with regular a/c unit all determine its life span.)
Manufactures typically give a life span of 12 to 15 years to most HVAC Equipment. The key to system longevity is regular maintenance by experienced HVAC professionals like A.I.R. llc. With proper care, your air conditioning system can last from 15 to 20 years; a gas furnace can run for up to 25 years.
> The information provided for average life spans of HVAC equipment came from ASHRAE Equipment Life Expectancy Chart and from leading manufacturers. <

I’ve been asked recently about the bibical verse posted on the A.I.R. website, business cards, advertisement and service van and wanted to take a moment to explain it’s purpose.
As a Christian and follower of Christ I wanted to share my faith and values openly, inside and outside the business. The verse John 14:1 says “Do not let you hearts be troubled, trust in God and me also.” From the beginning of my desire to own and operate a business I knew it would only be successful if the Lord himself wanted it to be. And I would have to trust him no matter what with the outcome.
Also, I’m an American Patriot! When we say “In God we Trust!” I believe this country was founded on just that! That is, the Trust of the Lord himself! Our founding fathers and those that framed the constitution stepped out on faith and the trust they had in God! Not the trust in their own abilties, but in the faith and trust in their God!
I know the business itself is a blessing from God! And I know that when we do business with any of our customers it is blessing to serve you and blessing to our family from God!
And in Him and only Him do I/ we Trust!
God Bless You and America!

A frozen Air-Conditioning Unit is common! Several common issues my cause your air conditioner to have frost on the copper refrigerant lines on the outdoor unit or on the indoor unit. Why? Here is a small list:
- Filters are dirty and the air flow over the evaporator coil is being restricted.
- A/C charge is low. Which means there is a possbile leak!
- A/C is over charged. Which means there is a root cause of a problem and a technician did not catch it or look for it!
- Outdoor Fan is not working or the indoor fan is not working or both!
- The outdoor coil or indoor coil is dirty and needs to be cleaned!
- There is a restriction in the refrigerant lines or a faulty refrigerant metering device.
