As we get deeper in to November and the temperature continues to dip, we’re faced with the approaching decision of when to turn the heat on. 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 year.
So when you need to replace your 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.
