Lennox Central Air Conditioner Last 9 Years
(Woodbury, new york)
The Lennox AC was installed about 9 years ago.
It was installed as a central ac unit for a 2 story co-op apartment dwelling. There are about 100 co-op apartments in the development which was built for senior occupancy.
The compressor for my outside central air conditioner has died. To make matters worse, it is hard to find a replacement since that unit works with freon which has now been replaced with something new.
My question and dissatisfaction is: Nine (9) years is a very short life for a compressor isn't it? I've lived in other houses and heard from friends that they've had central ac's that lasted for 15-20 years without having to replace the compressor.
I am a senior citizen on a fixed income and now have either a $2,500 bill for a new unit or a $1,300 bill for a replacement compressor, if indeed, they can get one.
