What Is the Average Life Expectancy of an HVAC Unit?

If you’re like most people, you probably ignore maintenance agreements any time your HVAC technician brings them up. I mean, are they really that important? Your system seems fine most of the time, so why bother?

Let’s look at it from a different angle. How about if I asked you whether or not it was important to change your car's oil regularly, or get a system check up every 15,000 miles? Would you say, “No, I’ll just wait until it breaks down, or makes a funny clicking and coughing noise before bringing it in”?

Of course not.

You understand the value of regular maintenance when it comes to your car’s lifelong performance, and the concept is the same for HVAC systems.

How Long Can You Expect an HVAC Unit to Last?

As we just mentioned above, it mostly depends on how well it's been cared for over the years. A system that has filters changed regularly, and receives tune-ups twice a year, could go as long as 25 years before requiring replacement. Conversely, a neglected system could up and die in 7 years or less.

When thinking about return on investment, 22 years make a pretty darn big difference! And let’s face it: these systems aren’t cheap. Do you really want to shell out several thousand dollars every few years just because you neglected to maintain your system properly? We're betting you can probably think of much better things to do with that money.
