With proper maintenance, furnaces and air conditioners can last over 15 years
For the most part, furnaces and air conditioners can last a very long time as long as they are properly maintained. It’s not unusual at all for heating and cooling systems to last 15 years or more. However, there will come a time when a system will need to be replaced. When that happens, you need to carefully consider what type of system you plan on purchasing.
One of the most important considerations is the size of the new heating and cooling system you will have installed. There is a good chance that the number of people living in your home has changed since your furnace and air conditioner were put in. Children may have moved out, you may have added to your family, or you may have a mother or father who have moved in.
If your new system is too small for your needs, it will have to work hard to make everyone in your home comfortable. This will not only reduce the lifespan of your new equipment, it will also make your energy bills much higher than they need to be. On the other hand, if the system is too large your home will probably feel stuffy because not enough humidity is being removed from your indoor air.
