We performed an internal review of air conditioner cost of ownership over a 20 year period and concluded that the average homeowner was spending about $135 per year, or roughly $2,700 over a 20 year lifespan. Some of our clients air conditioners did not even make it to 20 years. What we have found is that the systems which had the best maintenance had the lowest cost of ownership overall.
