This life cycle depends on a few factors including how often the unit was maintained, the quality of the equipment, as well as the quality of the initial installation. Maintenance is an important part of caring for any appliance in your home, as this can prolong the equipment’s life while increasing its energy efficiency and saving you big on costly repairs.
