Equipment Replacement

Life Expectancy

There are many factors that affect the life expectancy of commercial HVAC equipment, including proper maintenance, design conditions, proper installation, and equipment manufacturing quality. However, as a general rule, HVAC equipment has a 15 to 20 year life expectancy.

As HVAC equipment ages, the maintenance and repair costs, along with the inefficiency of older units, eventually become high enough that replacing the aging equipment with new equipment makes financial sense. Additionally, older HVAC equipment uses R-22 refrigerant, which is being phased out by the federal government. Because of this, the costs of R-22 will continue to rise dramatically going forward, eventually rendering the servicing of these units to be cost prohibitive. Replacing these units with equipment that uses R-410a refrigerant is a sound investment.

Financing and Incentives

Numerous financing options are available for HVAC equipment replacement and energy improvements. There are also many government and utility incentives and grants available, including through the City of Seattle.
