Signs Your Heating System Requires Replacement
Your heating system will provide safe and reliable operation for a long time, but even the best-built units won’t operate forever. Electric furnaces, gas furnaces, and boilers tend to have a life span of 15 to 20 years, heat pumps last around 15 years, and ductless mini-splits last around 20 years.
As your system nears these estimated ranges, it’s best to start considering replacements so you’re ready to choose before your system completely fails.
If you notice these signs, or if at any time a required repair costs more than 50% the cost of a new replacement, then it may be time to replace your aging unit with a modern, energy-efficient system:
- Odd noises/odors
- Inconsistent operation
- Increasing repair frequency
- Diminished performance

Frequently Asked Questions
How important is system sizing?
It’s crucial to select the right-sized system for your home. If the unit is too small, it will struggle to deliver consistent, energy-efficient performance. If it’s too large, you’ll waste energy. In both cases, incorrect sizing can cause excessive wear and tear that can shorten the expected life span of the unit.
What factors go into an accurate load calculation?
We consider a broad range of factors, including the size of the home, the climate, insulation, number of windows, home facing, desired efficiency, home layout, home construction, and home age. We use this information to identify how many BTUs the optimal furnace should produce.
Can I replace my own heating system?
You should never attempt to remove or replace your heating system. First, it’s a safety issue, and there’s always a risk of water leakage, fire, gas leak, or electrocution.
Second, doing so can void any manufacturer’s warranty coverage or homeowners insurance coverage. Finally, depending on the area, you may also require permits and the appropriate licensure to legally complete the task.
