The lifespan of the average heater depends on several factors, including how often it’s used, the environment it’s used in, the frequency of maintenance and the type of heater it is. Here are the average number of years that customer seems to get out of each type of heater:
By far the best way to ensure that you get at least the average out of your system, or more, is by being diligent about scheduling regular maintenance for your system.
It’s recommended by most manufacturers that you have your system inspected by a qualified professional at least once a year to ensure that it’s running optimally and has the best chance of keeping your family warm.

Regardless of the type of heater you use, it’s likely one of the highest energy-consuming systems in your home. A well-running heater should be associated with fairly consistent utility bills. Noticing any abnormally high energy costs could be a sign that your system is no longer running as efficiently as it should be and it could be time to start seeking out heater replacement in Longview.
Throughout the entirety of a heater’s lifespan, needing a few repairs is almost unavoidable. However, as a system starts to fail, breakdowns will become more frequent and there will eventually come a point where the cost of constant repairs will be far more expensive than outright replacement.
While no heater will run in total silence, the sound should remain consistent and shouldn’t consist of any loud rattling or booms. In addition to the moving parts like the blower fan, your heater contains of a number of parts that have the potential to cause noise when failing.
Your heater should be properly sized to provide even heating throughout your home. As a unit ages and reaches the point where it needs to be replaced, it will become less efficient at heating your home. Major breakdowns aren’t always the cause for replacement. Sometimes, your current unit just can’t handle the job at hand.
As we mentioned above, all types of heaters have an expected life span. While it’s possible to get more out of your unit than average, the age of your system plays a factor when you start experiencing more frequent breakdowns.
