How Long Should My Heating & Cooling System Last?

Indy car compared to an HVAC system

Like an Indy 500 race car, your heating and cooling (HVAC) system is an expensive piece of equipment that requires regular maintenance to work efficiently and safely to prevent unexpected breakdowns. If you’ve been wondering just how long your furnace and air conditioner should last, Service Plus Heating, Cooling and Plumbing is here to help. Not only do we have answers to your questions, but we also have tips to maximize the life of your HVAC system and save you time and money.

HVAC systems can last around 10 years

In general, most homeowners can expect ten or so faithful years of service from a properly maintained HVAC system. When your equipment ages much beyond that, you’ll find that you can both save time and money on repairs and energy bills by scheduling an HVAC system replacement with the Service Plus heating and cooling experts.

Systems last longer with proper maintenance

If you want your system to last as long as possible and avoid unexpected breakdowns, we recommend regular maintenance from a licensed company like ours. A routine service tune-up from our certified HVAC professionals includes a complete system cleaning, inspection, and diagnostics for all components (including electrical connections), as well as a check of the refrigerant and drain condensation. With our top-quality tune-up, you’ll know that your system is prepared to run efficiently and reliably all summer long.

The Service Plus Club makes maintenance easy

When you want to get the best value for your regular maintenance checks, we recommend joining the Service Plus Club. For as little as $8.25 a month, you’ll enjoy peace of mind that your HVAC system (and water heater – yes, your water heater is included) are routinely inspected and serviced, ensuring that they’ll run as long as possible before needing a replacement. We’ve seen that, on average, Service Plus Club members save more than $900 per year with the discounts and coupons in our program!

When it’s finally time for a replacement

You’ll know when it’s time to replace your HVAC system with a few telltale signs. If repairs are becoming more frequent, your energy bills are increasing, or your home is just not cooling down properly, it’s likely time to schedule a replacement. Thankfully, the experts at Service Plus can work with you to find the most appropriate HVAC solution for your home, offering free estimates and financing. We’ll happily come out and give your system a tune-up along with a replacement assessment, especially if your system is more than eight years old.
