For years, friends and family members ask the same questions time and time again:
How long will my appliances last?
I have compiled a list below showing data from many sources showing the life expectancy of various home appliances. Please note: these are averages based on consumer data. The lowest age on the list may simply be the first time you will need to call the repair man out to fix something. However, sometimes ages can prove to show when it is time to replace an item.
- Gas Range: 15-25 Years
- Electric Range: 13-18 Years
- Dryers: 13-16 Years
- Refrigerator: 13-18 Years
- Clothes washers: 10-12 years
- Dish Washer: 9-15 Years
- Compactors: 6 Years
- Microwaves: 9-11 Years
- Air Conditioners: 9-11 Years
- Garbage Disposals: 9-14 Years
