Although some systems can last up to 30 years, 10 to 20 years is the most common range. If you are unsure of the age of your furnace, you can always call the manufacturer.

More Than Just Heating And Air Conditioning
The term poor air quality does not only apply to a large metropolitan city; it can apply to the air you are circulating in your own home. Dust, allergens, cleaning products, mold, cigarette smoke and even your pets can compromise your home’s air quality. Luckily there is a solution other than giving away the family pet.
Whole air home filtration systems can clean the air coming into your home as well as the air already circulating through your home. This can also extend the life of your furnace by removing harmful contaminants and is virtually silent to run.
