New heating and air conditioning equipment lasts longer than it ever has in the past. The end of a unit's service life depends on more than just its actual age, though. Energy-efficiency issues, component failure, and the price of repairs versus the cost of a new unit all enter into the decision.
Generally speaking, a new furnace typically operates cost-effectively up to 20 years. Most furnace parts that fail during a unit's first two decades are replaceable at a cost that makes repairing the unit a better decision than replacing the entire furnace. One exception is the unit's heat exchanger, its single most expensive component. A cracked heat exchanger that's already out of warranty is usually the point that dictates it's time to shop for a new furnace.
Central air conditioning units typically operate efficiently up to 15 years. The cost-effective service life of a central cooling unit may be reduced considerably if its capacity is not properly matched to the size of the home. Oversized air conditioners will "short-cycle" - that is, turn on and off rapidly - causing excessive wear on the compressor. Like your furnace's heat exchanger, the compressor is the most costly part in your cooling system. A worn-out compressor in a unit that has outlived its warranty usually indicates that upgrading to a new, more energy-efficient air conditioner rather that repairing the existing unit is the best financial decision.
When replacing your old HVAC equipment with new units, it's always a good idea to note the installation date for future reference. Many homeowners affix a sticker to the side of the new unit with the date so this important information doesn't get misplaced in the years to come.
