Sooner or later, every homeowner is faced with the decision of whether or not to replace their heating system. The question is never "if", but "when" since all mechanical devices eventually wear out. Generally, a heating system will last 10 to 20 years, depending on the type (for example, a furnace may last longer than a heat pump). So, how do you know when the time is right?

Here are several factors to consider:

  • How expensive is the current repair? Although it might make sense to make small repairs to an aging system, it is never a good idea to replace major components after a system is ten years old.
  • Is the timing right? The best time to purchase a new heating system is during the spring or fall, when manufacturers offer purchase incentives. Typically, avoiding purchase decisions during extreme weather will save you money.
  • Can I get by with replacing one component instead of the entire system? A professional can help you with this decision, but age and compatibility are factors to consider. To get the best operating efficiency out of any system, the components must be matched.
  • How efficient should my new system be? Heating systems are rated numerically for efficiency. The higher the Annual Fuel Utilization Efficiency (AFUE) rating, the more efficient the system will be. Standard efficiency is around 80%, whereas high efficiency units have 90% or more AFUE.

Be sure to consult with an expert before investing in a new heating system. The professionals at Tom's Mechanical can help!
