How Long Does the Average HVAC System Last?
One of the most commonly asked questions among homeowners is: “How long does the average HVAC system last?” Realistically, there is no a straightforward answer to this question since the lifespan of your system will largely depend on how you maintain it. But even in the best case scenarios most components of HVAC systems only last 15 to 25 years.
Furnaces on average last 15-20 years, heat pumps 16 years, and air conditioning units 10-15 years. Depending on how diligent your repairs are, good maintenance can add up to seven years of life to your system. Make sure you’re changing air filters regularly, getting seasonal tune-ups as necessary, using the “auto” fan setting, upgrading your insulation.
