Did you every wonder how long the new refrigerator and stove that came with your condo will last? Well, the life expectancy of a typical appliance depends to a great extent on the use it receives. Moreover, appliances are often replaced long before they are worn out because changes in styling, technology and consumer preferences make newer products more desirable. The National Association of Home Builders’ “Study of Life Expectancy of Home Components” gives a decent estimate by compiling life-cycle data from scores of product manufacturers and testing labs.

The following is a list of the life expectancy of major appliances in a home:

Gas ranges: 15 years

Dryers and Refrigerators: 13 years

Compactors: 6 years

Dishwashers: 9 years

Microwave Ovens 9 years
