Life Expectancy of Home Components New Hampshire and Vermont, one of the questions, that I'm asked the most by Home Buyers, is about the life expectancy of the different components of the home that my client's are haven Inspected.

Will the life expectancies of the different components of a home, really depends on the quality of the installation that was done, the level of maintenance the item needs, the weather and the climate conditions of the area, and the intensity the item is going to be used.

One of my HVAC units is 30 years old and then other is 3 years old- the house is on its 3rd replacement.  Recent servicing showed the old one is still kicking stong while the younger one is in trouble.
