Customer Review
“I needed a new Furnace and Hot Water Heater in my condo in downtown. I had a few estimates but got sold early on Genz-Ryan. My initial contacts with the office, the estimator, and the team who did the installation were all extremely professional. They didn’t try to up-sell me services. The price quoted was what I paid. The service team was respectful. Showed me how the equipment worked and gave me an on-site demonstration. I couldn’t be happier.” – Mike K.

Heating FAQs

How long do heating systems last?

Most heating systems fall in a range of 10 to 20 years, but you’ll see variation by system type, with how well you care for your system, and with luck. With proper maintenance, you can expect the following life spans from your heating system:

  • Furnaces: 10 to 15 years
  • Heat pumps: 15 years
  • Ductless mini-splits: 20 years

Ductless mini-splits and heat pumps used heavily for air conditioning in the summer might see shorter life spans than this and will require more maintenance to achieve longer service lives.

Changing filters regularly, clearing out dusty ductwork, and having repairs done promptly when you suspect a problem will have a big impact on the actual life span of your heating system.

What is an HVAC zoning system?

A zoning system allows you to heat and cool different areas of your home individually. For example, if your upstairs is always warmer than your downstairs, you could zone them separately for greater temperature control and increased comfort. This also saves energy since you won’t be forcing your system to heat or cool areas that don’t need it.

How often do I need heating system maintenance?

You should have furnaces tuned up once per year, before the cold weather starts. Because they work all year long, heat pumps should have maintenance done twice a year — once before the weather gets hot, and once before it gets cold outside. Having maintenance performed before the most extreme seasons will ensure that your system is ready to perform when you need it most.

How do I know which type of heating system to pick?

There’s no one-size-fits-all solution to heating, so you’ll want to choose based on your budget, preferences, and goals.

Heat pumps and ductless mini-splits can be expected to cost significantly more than furnaces at similar sizes on the front end, for example, but generally require less maintenance, last longer, offer better efficiency, and provide a gentler and more comfortable heat.

You might also want to consider your current heating system and what you’d need to do to implement a particular form of heat; if you don’t already have ductwork, a furnace is suddenly far less cost-effective upfront.

Do heat pumps and mini-splits work when it gets really cold?

A heat pump or ductless mini-split system will still work to heat your home as temperatures reach freezing, but they start to lose efficiency and need to work harder to provide the same level of heat.

Below freezing, you’ll see efficiency the same as or worse than a furnace, and as the temperature lowers, the furnace will pull ahead substantially. Of course, a heat pump is as much as 3 to 4 times as efficient as a furnace during optimal temperatures, so it’s still a great investment for efficiency!

Can I use multiple heating systems together?

If it makes sense for your home, yes! Many homes have both a heat pump and furnace to maintain high efficiency no matter the weather, with reliable on-demand heat when you need to get the temperature up quickly.

Heat pumps can pull double duty for cooling, so it’s not much different from the way a traditional air conditioner connects to your furnace’s air handler.
