Frequently Asked Questions About Heating


How long do heating systems last?

Different heating systems have different standards for service life, though any can fall short or exceed its average based on maintenance, speedy repairs, and luck.

  • Furnaces can last 15 or 20 years but will be showing their age as early as 10 in some cases.
  • Heat pumps will outlast a furnace if used exclusively for heat but tend to fall short with a 10- to 15-year service life if used year-round for heating and cooling
  • Hybrid systems last the longest because they strain their component systems less, as long as 25 years. It’s best to replace both systems when one or the other fails.
  • Ductless mini-splits use the same technology as heat pumps and share their service lives; lengthy for heating alone and shorter for year-round use.

Should I repair or replace my heating system?

We typically compare outcomes: If you repair this problem today, will you need to fix something else soon? Will you regret spending so much on a repair when you could have put it toward replacement? The older a system gets, the more the balance shifts toward replacement as a sounder investment.

Why is my furnace making noise?

If your furnace starts making strange noises, it can be any number of issues:

  • Booms and bangs from delayed ignition
  • Clicking from a damaged igniter or failed flame sensor
  • Rattling from loose screws and damaged components
  • Shrieking motor belts and friction on other misaligned parts

You can learn more about these sounds and what to do by reading our article on the subject!

How can I maximize heating efficiency in the Minnesota winter?

When winter comes through, get the most from your furnace with these winter furnace tips:

  • Reduce your thermostat setting (or let a smart thermostat do it) before bed
  • Maintain comfortable humidity with a humidifier
  • Keep up with annual maintenance and monthly filter replacement

How do I maintain my heating system?

While a professional tune-up once a year is important, as a homeowner, you can also help your heating system with fall maintenance, including:

  • Clearing the area around your furnace
  • Changing filters (or cleaning them if your system uses a permanent filter)
  • Inspecting for visible damage, looking and listening for leaks of water, refrigerant, oil, gas, etc.
  • Paying attention to anything weird: sounds, behaviors, smells, and so on
