As we get deeper in to November and the temperature begins to fall, we’re faced with the approaching decision of when to switch over to heating our home. For some people, that time has already come and for others, it is looming large. Of course with winter 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 season.
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 the middle of January because you didn’t know your furnace was about to go out.
