Most home comfort systems have two parts: an outdoor air conditioner or heat pump, and an indoor unit, like a furnace. Furnaces heat and circulate warm air in the winter. They also take cool air from the outdoor unit and circulate it through your home in the summer. When the right furnace is properly matched with the right heat pump or air conditioner, you can enjoy maximum energy efficiency, extended system lifespan, and consistent comfort.
At Vander Hyde Services, our goal is to ensure every homeowner receives the right furnace for the right price.

How Long Does a Furnace Last?
The lifespan of your furnace will depend on the care it receives throughout its life. A quality, well-maintained furnace could last over 40 years, but this is pretty rare. And at 40 years old, there would be much more advanced technology available with an upgrade that would dramatically increase comfort and efficiency, so that’s not necessarily something you would want to aim for. On the other extreme, a furnace could kick the bucket before the ten-year mark. This is more common with systems that haven’t seen a lot maintenance.
The average lifespan of a gas furnace is about 15-20 years. Electric furnaces last closer to 20 - 30 years. If your furnace is about this age, it will probably start to become a problem soon if it hasn’t already.
