Dependable heating systems protect houses from harsh elements. Without a fully functional heater, your home is at risk of burst pipes and structural damage. But as your current system demands more and more repairs, you might doubt whether your home can make it through another North Carolina winter without damage.
At Ward Plumbing, Heating & Air, we offer immediate emergency and heating replacement services with flexible financing options to keep your home cozy and stable all winter.
How Long Should My Heating System Last?
Your heating system’s lifespan greatly depends on the type of system you have. Some models last much longer than others:
Central systems can last up to 20 years.
A heat pump functions optimally for 10 to 15 years.
Furnaces have an average lifespan of 20 years.
Radiant heating systems can last more than 20 years.
If you give your system regular maintenance and prompt repairs, it may last much longer than average estimates. Still, all appliances will inevitably stop working. The Ward PH&A experts are ready to provide quality heating replacement and installation services when you need a new unit.
When Should I Consider Heating Replacement?
Many homeowners wonder when is the best time to replace their heating system. Below are signs your heating system is on its last leg and will need to be replaced soon.
Your heating system is way past its prime.
Repair costs keep mounting with no end in sight.
Your utility bills climb any time you use your existing HVAC system.
You notice disruptive sounds or smells during HVAC operation.
Your indoor air quality has decreased, causing a spike in sneezing, snoring, coughing, and respiratory discomfort.
Financing A Heating Replacement
Financial concerns are among the main hurdles our customers face when considering heating replacement. Therefore, we offer financing options to make the transition easier on your wallet. When selecting a heating unit for your home, we always consider a homeowner’s budget, along with proper sizing and heating needs.
While a new heating system is an investment, it can come with long-term financial benefits that your old system simply cannot supply:
Increased energy efficiency means lower energy bills.
Your repair costs will disappear with a new, improved model.
Financing lets you choose monthly payment options that won’t break the bank.
The money you save on energy expenses and repairs can go toward your monthly payments.
Additionally, new systems have advanced technology that makes them work more efficiently. With regular maintenance, you can avoid unexpected utility spikes and steep repair costs. Improved indoor air quality is an additional perk that makes your indoor air more comfortable and healthy to breathe.

Repair or Replace Calculator
Calculator for the $5,000 rule
The $5,000 rule is an industry accepted rule for determining whether to repair or replace an HVAC system. Multiply the age of your equipment by its estimated repair cost. If the outcome is under $5,000, you should probably repair. If over $5,000, you should replace.
