It should be no surprise to a business owner that a Heating, Ventilation and Air Conditioning (HVAC) system is essential to maintaining a comfortable environment in a commercial building. Since it is so important to your operations, especially for those doing business in more extreme climates, it is also important to know how long your HVAC equipment will last you. So, what’s the lifespan of a typical commercial HVAC system?
On average, most commercial HVAC systems have a lifespan of 10-15 years. The lifetime of your system will vary depending on the type of equipment you have and how frequently it is used. Some of the other key factors that influence your HVAC equipment are the efficiency of design, how the system was implemented, and the interior climate of the structure, such as dust levels.
However, there are several simple actions you can take to extend the life of your air conditioning unit. And it all starts with proper maintenance of the system, which is crucial to maximizing the lifespan of your equipment. Change your air filters monthly to increase your system’s performance. Another important preventative step is to make sure your drain pan and condenser coils are clean. You should also run a cup of bleach down your condensate drain from time to time to clean it and avoid clogs.
