What is a Furnace’s Life Expectancy and How Can you Extend it?

5.0 Rating

3d human with a red question markOne 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!

What is the average life expectancy of a furnace?

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.

Factors that will improve a furnace’s life expectancy

If you have any questions about a furnace’s life expectancy, or if you’d like a heating system serviced or installed in your home, contact Jerry Kelly, your Saint Charles, MO, heating and cooling contractor. We service the St. Louis area, including towns like Weldon Spring, Wentzville and Winghaven.
