As we get further in to November and the temperature continues to drop, we’re faced with the approaching decision of when to turn the heat on. For some families, that time has already come and for others, it is looming large. Of course with the cold rapidly approaching now is the time to consider replacing your home’s furnace because no one wants their furnace to go bad in the middle of the coldest day of the season.
So when it’s time to find a new furnace, how do you know whether you should go with 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 layered up in the middle of January because you didn’t know your furnace was about to go out.
