Our air conditioners were getting less effective and then suddenly they become exalted fans only! Got to call the service guys to come in asap...I hope to replace the system with an inverter based one in the next few months.
I think we have easily had the system for 7 to 8 years already? Possibly has one to two years of life left.
It is like turning one full cycle. The first to be replaced was the fridge, the DVD player broke down and then another one that came with the smaller TV also went kaput. I hope it stops here.
