We often get asked how long does a furnace usually last? Generally speaking, a furnace can be expected to last between 15 and 20 years. This average varies, of course, based on the quality of the unit, how it’s used and whether it has been properly maintained. It can also depend on the specific type of unit, with forced air systems with a heat pump at the lower end of the range (at around 15 years), and gas- or oil-fueled models coming in at around 18 years. If your model is more than 25 years old, it’s probably very near the end of its useful life, and it’s time to start planning to replace it.
If you are experiencing problems with your furnace it’s a good idea to have a Green Apple Mechanical technician look at it. Experts agree that your furnace should be inspected at least once a year to make sure there are no underlying problems that could turn into something more significant if left unchecked.
