The average lifespan of a residential HVAC system is typically between 15 to 20 years. However, this can vary based on the type of system, usage, and maintenance practices. To extend the lifespan of your HVAC system:
– Schedule regular maintenance and tune-ups with a professional.
– Replace air filters every 2-3 months or as recommended by the manufacturer.
– Ensure the outdoor unit is clear of debris and has proper airflow.
– Use a programmable thermostat to reduce unnecessary strain on the system.
