On average, your HVAC system lasts about 15-20 years. However, a number of factors, such as your climate, can affect the lifespan of this system. For example, in warmer areas like in the South, AC units tend to last less time than they do in homes in the North; in the North, furnaces tend to last less time than homes in the South. 

Once your HVAC system starts to get older, you will likely begin to notice signs that it’s time to get a new HVAC system. Some of these signs include:

  • Your HVAC system is making loud noises. Parts of your HVAC system, such as your condensing unit and your air registers will make noise while they’re at work, but making loud noises that you’ve never noticed before. In addition, no part of your HVAC system should be making loud banging noises.
  • If you notice that your air system is running longer and more often than it used to, that could be a sign that it’s reaching the end of its life and not as efficient as it used to be.
  • If your HVAC system is starting to need more and more repairs, it will likely save you money in the long run to go ahead and replace it. Not only will you save on repair costs, but energy costs as well.
  • If your energy bill continues to rise with no explanation, it could be because your HVAC system isn’t running as well as it used to.
  • If your home isn’t heating or cooling evenly throughout, this could be a sign that something’s going on with your HVAC system.

Some of these signs just mean that a part of your HVAC system needs to be replaced or repaired, while other signs might mean that it’s time for a whole new system. Either way, if you notice any of these signs, you should call an HVAC professional immediately to have them come to check it out.
