Many people wonder how long a furnace or air conditioner should last. The answer is units made prior to 1980 usually last 10 to 15 years. Older ones last 10 to 12 years, and newer ones 15 to 20 years, all within proper ongoing maintenance.

Other people ask why they should replace their furnace or air conditioner when it still works. If it is more than 12 years old, you should consider replacing it with a higher efficiency model; this could save you up to 50% on energy costs.

Here are some tips to keep your cooling costs low in the summer. Set the thermostat as high as comfort will permit, and make sure attics are adequately ventilated to relieve heat buildup. If necessary, improve airflow by adding vents. When building a new house or remodeling, choose light-colored roof shingles to reflect the sun’s heat. Don’t use the air conditioner when the temperature outside is cool enough for the house to comfortable without it. Draw the blinds and drapes when you are not home to block the sunlight during the hottest part of the day. Install awnings over windows in direct sunlight. Don’t run kitchen and bath exhaust fans longer than necessary and don’t place heat-producing items below a thermostat. This may register a higher temperature to the thermostat and overcool the house.

When it comes to heating, here are a few ways to save on the cost. Place the thermostat on an inside wall away from doors and windows. Set the temperature as low as comfort permits, 68 degrees if possible. Lower the thermostat two degrees when expecting a large group of guests, because people produce heat.

Finally, make sure the insulation is sufficient and not worn out as this will keep in as much heat as possible.
