ASHRAE: Service Life and Maintenance Cost Database
The purpose of this database is to provide current information on service life and maintenance costs of typical HVAC equipment. Engineers depend on accurate owning and operating data to make decisions involving the life cycle and functionality of buildings. However, lack of sufficient up-to-date data makes it difficult to provide a solid basis for those decisions. Previous efforts to collect data through traditional survey methods have produced less than acceptable results.

- Equipment Service Life Evaluation (here): Creates both lists and summaries of service life data customized to match specific criteria.
- HVAC Maintenance Cost Evaluation (here): Creates both lists and summaries of maintenance data customized to match specific criteria.
- Submit HVAC Data (here): The database is open for public data submissions. Registration is required.
