Appliance Lifespan – What Homebuyers Need To Know

November 26, 2016

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. Questions? Give me a call or text: (206) 730-0962 or nina.bjornstal@sothebysrealty.com or nina@ninabjornstal.com.
