The average life expectancy of a furnace is 15-20 years. Most manufacturers provide a 10-year part warranty with the exception of the heat exchanger which is usually 20 years.
Despite your home relying on this machine the most, central A/C units have one of the shortest life expectancies in the HVAC category, with an average of between 10-15 years.
Heat Pumps, because they operate in Ohio in both winter and summer, have a life expectancy of 10-15 years, even though the manufacturer’s parts warranty is only 10 years. Some manufacturers offer a longer compressor warranty. To our knowledge, no manufacturer is currently providing a labor warranty.
