What's an Average Life Expectancy of an HVAC System?

HVAC Lifespan

A maintenance agreement can extend your HVAC system’s useful years.

The average life expectancy of an HVAC system is about 15-20 years, but many homeowners can extend it further by purchasing a maintenance agreement. Certain parts of an HVAC system tend to wear out or break down well before the 15-year mark. These issues can cause the system to run less efficiently, and in some cases, they can even cause a complete system breakdown. Signing a maintenance agreement with your service provider is the best way to avoid these problems.

Maintenance agreements include a certain number of scheduled inspections each year. During these inspections, the technician will check all of the parts of the HVAC system. Your technicians will alert you when they find parts that should be replaced and will give you an appropriate timeframe for having that done. A good technician can even tell you whether you can expect a few more weeks or a few more years out of a component that is wearing-down.

Maintenance Agreements Provide Peace of Mind

During these inspections, the technician should also clean the HVAC equipment to help make sure it keeps running well. Certain parts will be lubricated, and other minor adjustments may be made to the equipment. At the end of the inspection, you should have a full report on the status of your HVAC equipment. This will help you rest assured that your HVAC system won’t fail you anytime soon. You will have a heads-up on any upcoming repairs or replacements you’ll have to take care of.

To protect your HVAC system and extend its useful years, ask your HVAC company about their maintenance agreements.
