Should you repair or replace your home heating system?
How long should your heating system last? It depends on the type of heating system you have. Furnaces last 15 to 20 years, while heat pumps last about 16 years, and boilers last about 30 years. Ductless or mini-split systems last about 20 years, while radiant floor heating systems last about 35 years.
