As we get deeper in to November and the temperature starts to dip, we’re faced with the impending decision of when to turn the heat on. For some folks, that time has already come and for others, it is looming large. Of course with the cold quickly approaching now is the time to consider replacing your home’s furnace because no one wants their furnace to go kaput in the middle of the coldest day of the year.
So when the time comes to get a new furnace, how do you know which option to choose between an oil furnace or a gas furnace? Well we’re here to help answer that for you. After all, there’s no good reason for being bundled up in 10 layers in the middle of January because you didn’t know your furnace was going to go out.
