Appliance Lifespan – What Homebuyers Need To Know

If you are considering purchasing a home, it is smart to find out the age of the different appliances and systems that come with the property. The first step is to make a list of the appliances that come with the home and the date purchased. Then compare that to the list below:

Appliance Average Lifespan
Refrigerator 13 years
Dishwasher 9 years
Gas Range 15 years
Electric Range 13 years
Washing Machine 10 years
Dryer 13 years
Air Conditioner (room) 10 years
Central Air Conditioner 15 years
Freezer 11 years
Garbage Disposal 12 years
Microwave Oven 9 years
Water Heater Electric 11 years
Water Heater Gas 10 years
Tankless Water Heater 20+ years

These lifespans are just an estimate, of course. The true lifespan will vary by model, manufacturer, and how well the appliances have been maintained.  I like to help my buyers with tips like this that could save them money down the road.
