Replacement of a furnace in a residential rental property is a capital improvement to the structure. The furnace is in the same class of property as the property in which it is installed. Since the property is residential rental property, the furnace is, generally, depreciated over a recovery period of 27.5 years using the straight line method of depreciation and a mid-month convention. For more information, refer to Publication 527, Residential Rental Property, and Publication 946, How to Depreciate Property. more
