According to Speakspeak, since and for both express duration up to a point in the present, but we use them differently.

Since expresses duration of an unfinished action, up to a point in the present:

“I’ve been here since 8 o’clock this morning so I’m going home now.”

– We use from in other cases:

“I will be here from 8 o’clock tomorrow.

– We use for + a time period.

“We have lived in this house for thirty years.”
