How to Tell If You Need Heating Repair or Replacement
Regardless of how well a system is maintained, its useful life will eventually come to an end. Improper installation, lack of maintenance, high use, and other factors will alter its lifespan. The following will help understand when your home’s heat system may require replacement or can make it a few more years with some needed repairs.
With proper maintenance, a gas furnace will typically last from 15 to 25 years. Modern heat pumps can last for 20 to 25 years. Boilers often last for 30 years and some for 40 or more years. It is important to keep records of when you purchased your system and have documentation of routine maintenance performed by certified technicians. Know the specifics of manufacturer and/or builder warranties in the event any covered components fail prematurely. The high-density polyethylene pipe used in closed loop geothermal systems typically have a 50-year warranty but reasonably can last much longer. Interior components of a geothermal system can last for about 20 years with proper servicing.
If your system is younger than the typical age that they die, you likely only need repairs. However, a professional inspection can give you a more accurate assessment.
