Is your HVAC system on its last leg?
Average life of an HVAC system is 12-15 years. Air conditioners typically last 10-15 years and furnaces typically last 15+ years. Bad news, chances are the people who owned the home before you, probably didn’t take proper care of it. HVAC systems work like human beings… The older they get, the closer they are to retirement. Though some HVAC systems keep chugging beyond their average lifespan, it is always better to plan for a new system instead of freezing or sweating it out.
