    I lnow electric furnaces last longer than gas burning appliances with fewer parts to burn out, but what is the expected life span of an electric furnace?

    Wouldn't it be the life of the house? The heating element(s) and motor can easily be replaced. I'm not sure what else would wear out. There is no heat exchanger.

    Life span is dependent upon the supply of replacement parts.
