As we get a few weeks in to November and the temperature continues to drop, we’re faced with the impending decision of when to switch over to heating our home. For some families, that time has already come and for others, it is looming large. Of course with the cold swiftly approaching now is the time to consider replacing your home’s furnace because no one wants their furnace to go out in the middle of the coldest day of the season.
So when you need to find a new furnace, how do you know if you should choose 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 the middle of January because you didn’t know your furnace was going to go out.
