"Since" is use to express perfect time and "for" is use to express imperfect time. For example, we are living here for many years. we are living here since 2015. here in 1st sentence we cant get the exact time but in 2nd sentence we can understand the exact time. that means if u don't have perfect time to mention, use "for" and for perfect time use "since". I hope this information will be helpful to you..
