What is the Life Expectancy of My HVAC Unit?

By April 12, 2023April 29th, 2023No Comments

The life expectancy of an HVAC unit can vary depending on several factors such as the type of unit, the quality of installation, maintenance, usage, and environmental conditions.

  1. Air conditioners: An air conditioner’s lifespan is typically between 10 to 15 years, with proper maintenance.
  2. Furnaces: Furnaces can last between 15 to 20 years, with regular maintenance and timely repairs.
  3. Heat pumps: Heat pumps typically have a lifespan of 10 to 15 years, but can last up to 20 years with proper maintenance.

It’s important to note that these are just general guidelines, and individual units can vary widely. Factors such as usage patterns, climate, and maintenance practices can all impact the lifespan of an HVAC unit. To maximize the life expectancy of your HVAC unit, it’s important to have it regularly serviced by a licensed technician, and to promptly address any repairs or issues that arise.
