The Life Expectancy of Commercial HVAC Systems

The HVAC system is an integral part of any home or commercial building as it provides adequate amounts of heating and cooling for property. While they may seem like fixtures that will stay there for a long while, they do have their life expectancies. When it comes to your commercial HVAC system, you need to be more careful as it affects the entire building.


Here, Stone Heating and Air, one of the country’s best air conditioning companies, discusses the life expectancy of commercial HVAC systems.

No Maintenance

If you fail to maintain your HVAC system at all, you can expect it to last for a mere five years. If you have a high-efficiency HVAC system, you can only reap its benefits during the first and second seasons of use. Afterwards, you can expect a decrease in energy and cooling efficiency due to the likely increase of breakdowns in the unit.

Bare Minimum Maintenance

By providing the bare minimum maintenance to your commercial HVAC system, HVAC companies say that you can expect the system to last 10 years as this is the expected lifespan of a barely maintained commercial HVAC system. After a decade, professionals say that any year after that is a mere bonus.

Average Maintenance

On the other hand, if you give the system the average amount of maintenance, it’s more likely to last 15 years, just a few years past its median lifespan.

Regular Maintenance

15 years may sound like a blessing but professionals say that if you maintain your commercial HVAC system regularly, it can last for 20 years before requiring a complete replacement. By this point, the system will be at the end of its lifespan but it will have paid for itself and you will have saved a significant amount on your monthly bills.
