Homeowners are constantly facing the possibility of repairing or replacing appliances. From the hot water heater to the furnace; there is no telling exactly when a home appliance will fail you. However, you can get a pretty good idea of how long appliances last and maintain them accordingly. Below is a list of common house hold appliances and their general life spans:
Gas boiler – 16 to 28 years
Electric Water Heater – 12 to 18 years
Gas Water Heater – 11 to 16
Central Air Conditioner – 11 to 22
Gas Furnace – 15 to 22 years
Heat Pump – 12 to 20 years
As an appliance ages, so does its maintenance requirements. Make sure to follow the manufactures suggested maintenance procedures to avoid high dollar surprise bills that come with a sudden repair or replacement.
