Most furnaces can last up to 30 years. The life expectancy of yours will depend on a variety of factors. These include the furnace’s manufacturer and model, whether proper installation techniques were used, the frequency and quality of maintenance services performed and the moisture level in your home. Let’s explore the factors that can determine your furnace’s life expectancy.
Furnace Manufacturer and Model
Price doesn’t determine the quality of a furnace. However, some manufacturers produce better furnaces than others. When shopping for a furnace, it’s important to select a quality furnace from a reputable manufacturer. Research furnaces using online tools. If you need a new furnace, we can help you select a quality furnace to heat your home.
Annual maintenance services for your furnace are essential. They extend the life of your furnace, keep it working properly and prevent premature breakdowns. If you haven’t scheduled your annual maintenance service, we offer annual maintenance plans. Maintenance services from Unique Heating & Air Conditioning Inc. include cleaning, tune-up and inspection for worn parts.
Your furnace must be the proper size and type for your home. In addition, it must be properly installed by professional HVAC technicians. Improper installation can reduce your furnace’s efficiency by as much as 30%.

Home Moisture Levels
Excessive moisture in your home promotes the growth of mildew and mold. Moisture can also cause rust in parts of your furnace. In addition, excess moisture could damage your heat exchanger. This is the area that transfers the heat in your furnace to the air. Purchase a humidifier if the moisture level in your residence is too high.
