One of the most common questions that St. Louis area homeowners have when they are buying a new furnace or deciding whether or not to replace their current system is, "How long is a furnace supposed to last?" This is a great question, and something that depends on a number of different factors. Today we're going to talk about the average life expectancy of a furnace and what you can do to extend your system's operating life!
The life expectancy of a furnace is directly related to how well it is maintained, how often it is used and whether or not it was installed properly. In general, you can expect a well-maintained and properly-installed furnace to last around 15-20 years. However, if your furnace is not properly-maintained and/or it was not installed the right way, its life expectancy can drop by a number of years.
