How Long Do Furnaces Usually Last?

Gas Furnace Inspection and Repair

The connection between service agreements and the life expectancy of your furnace.

Are you wondering about service agreements for your appliances and utilities? You might be surprised to know that the average life expectancy of a furnace is only 15 years. Can service agreements extend that? You bet. Here’s how:

One and Done

Sometimes a furnace will not show any signs of distress and will continue working just fine…until it doesn’t. All of a sudden, you lose heat. When this is the case it can be hard to predict when you should start planning for a new furnace. Unless you have a service agreement and regular maintenance in place, that is.

Regular maintenance will not only identify problems before they become detrimental to your heating system, it can also help extend the life of your furnace. By giving your HVAC system regular attention, your tech has the opportunity to inspect the system and make any necessary repairs, in addition to lubricating moving parts and checking, adjusting, and cleaning the rest of the unit. When this is done regularly your furnace will run more smoothly, more effectively and efficiently, and for a longer period of time.

Inspection Gives Insight

When you have a service agreement for your HVAC system, it’s going to get maintenance twice a year. This means every spring and every fall a certified professional technician is going to inspect your heating and cooling system.

In the fall when your furnace is getting its TLC, the technician is going to look at everything that makes your furnace tick. This gives them the opportunity to see what’s actually going on with your furnace and if it’s starting to break down.

With their expert advice, you may be able to plan ahead when investing in a new system. They can also help your current system live a longer life by making sure it’s running in tip-top shape.

Although the life expectancy of a furnace can vary, you can always be sure to get the most out of yours with regular maintenance. For information on the best service agreements for your heating and air conditioning system, contact the team at All City Heat and Air.

Tom and I would like to take a moment to thank you for your recent visit to inspect and clean our heating equipment. As always, we received your normal professional and informative information. We consider you the most knowledgeable person we have ever dealt with when it comes to our heating and cooling equipment. When you put in our new system a few years ago you advised us on what would work best for our home and we were very pleased with what we decided to have installed.

We have been dealing with you for years and would not consider contacting anyone else when we have a problem or for our annual inspection. We do not hesitate to recommend you to all of our family and friends whenever they have a need for a top notch heating and air specialist.
