Appliances that were made that long ago were built to last, unlike the new stuff that’s being put on the market today
My HVAC system is really old. The furnace is 24 years old and the AC system is 23 years old, which far exceeds the lifespan of most HVAC systems on today’s market. When the HVAC technician comes to my house every year to service the equipment, he always tells me how horrible my heat and air system is. This is my first house and the first HVAC system I’ve ever owned so I have nothing to compare it to. However, I really don’t think my HVAC system is that terrible. I pay under two hundred dollars every month for my heat and air to run, and even less during the winter when my furnace is running. I’ve never struggled to pay the bill and I’ve never had anything to compare it to, so I’ve never seen an issue. My HVAC technician says that what I’m seeing isn’t normal though. According to him, HVAC systems are only meant to last ten to twelve years. He also said that my monthly bills are higher than average. I’m sure the HVAC technician is telling me the truth, but what he’s forgetting is that my HVAC system was designed two decades ago. Appliances that were made that long ago were built to last, unlike the new stuff that’s being put on the market today. I’ve been looking at purchasing a new HVAC system for my home because I know that I’ll need to install a new one eventually. However, I’m determined to wait until this HVAC system doesn’t work anymore.
