Spring has sprung. That snowy winter weather is a thing of the past. And you know what that means: summer is quickly approaching. Before you know it, the temperature will be in the upper 90s and the humidity will be almost unbearable. But that’s Maryland for you. The important thing is to ensure your air conditioner is ready for the increased demand. Otherwise, it could be a very long summer.


As we mentioned a few weeks back, spring is the perfect time to have your Carrier air conditioner professionally inspected and serviced. Few tasks pay off more handsomely – both in terms and comfort and savings – than AC maintenance. This will not only help ensure your home is comfortable all summer long, but also improve energy efficiency, minimize costly breakdowns, and extend the life of your system. Still, there comes a time when annual maintenance is not enough. There comes a time when it makes more sense financially to just replace your air conditioner.

The average air conditioner lasts about 15 to 20 years, if not longer. Still, it is sometimes more cost-effective to replace your AC with a newer model, even if it isn’t that old. Today’s best air conditioners use 30% to 50% less energy than air conditioners made just 10 years ago.
