It’s hard for us to admit, but winter is just around the corner. There’s nothing better than coming inside to a warm, cozy house during a Haverhill winter. If you are in need of a furnace replacement you might arrive home to an unwelcome, chilly surprise. A properly maintained furnace should last anywhere from 12-18 years. If your furnace is getting up there in age, there are a few warning signs you can look for to let you know it’s time to look into a replacement.

Strange Noises

If the sounds that go bump in the night (or day) is your furnace, it might be time to start looking into a replacement furnace. When a furnace starts to reach the end of its life it lets you know by getting noisier. You may notice it running constantly or turning off and on more frequently.

Frequent Breakdowns

Of course it’s perfectly normal to expect to give the team at Andrew DiPietro’s Climate Zone a call for service each year, but if you’re having to call for repairs more frequently it may be a sign your system is on its last leg. As your furnace gets older it will require more maintenance and will also run less efficiency. You may start to see that the cost of upkeep and the cost of running your old system outweighs the benefits.
