On average a system can last between 10 to 25 years with preventative maintenance. The life expectancy of any HVAC system or equipment depends on the preventative maintenance and service performed on them, as well as the type of equipment and your usage. You want to always have a qualified HVAC technician perform maintenance at least twice a year on your equipment.

How long a water heater lasts depends on how well it is maintained, the water quality in your area, proper installation, and amount of use.

Conventional water heaters, called ‘storage’ units, transfer heat from a burner or coil to water in an insulated tank. The down side to a conventional water heater is that energy is consumed even when no hot water is being used.

Tankless water heaters do not contain a storage tank like conventional water heaters. A gas burner or electric element heats the water only when there is a demand for hot water.
