Dad has lived in his lakehouse for over 15 years now.
And with any home, over time, things will depreciate and break down.
That’s especially true for the Heating and Air Conditioning unit, which is one of the components that people use almost, if not every day. It helps to keep a home comfortable while you spend time inside your homes. Well, for the 15 years he has been living in his home, dad has never replaced their Heating and Air Conditioning components and we were surprised to know that the HVAC system has not yet completely broken down. Based on our proficiency, most Heating and Air Conditioning units have an average lifespan of between 10 to 20 years, depending on the type of unit. If you own a heat pump, the life expectancy should be around 10 to 15 years and heaters will last up to 20 years. However, with proper service, an Heating and Air Conditioning component can last longer than expected. And that’s why dad’s Heating and Air Conditioning component has never broken down. Not only have they tested the component over the years, but they have also tested it themselves. In addition, they have constantly changed their air filter within 60 to 90 afternoons, and they have gotten their ductwork cleaned and have installed a programmable temperature control. All the service and smart decisions have led to them keeping their Heating and Air Conditioning component in the best condition possible. Our Heating and Air Conditioning component is only 5 years old, but we are going to take a page out of dad’s book so that our component can also outlast its lifespan. It’s the least we can do to protect the most used component in our home.
