TPMS lifespan

I am about to replace a set of snow tires that I bought in 2013 from the Tire Rack with TPMS and 17 inch rims. I have been running them since the winter of 2013. Do the TPMS sensors need to be replaced or is there a service like changing a battery inside the sensors that needs to be done while I have the snow tires off the rims?

The batteries are molded into the sensors themselves, there is no changing them. They last a long time, got over 7 years on mine so far and still going strong, so unless the sensors get damaged while changing the tires, they should last longer than the second set of tires you are putting on.

There are rebuild kits for the gaskets, cheap. Might as well do that while everything is apart.
