As we get further in to November and the temperature begins to dip, we’re faced with the imminent decision of when to switch over to heating our home. For some folks, that time has already come and for others, it is looming large. Of course with colder months quickly 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 month.
So when it’s time to replace your 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 reason to be layered up in the middle of January because you didn’t know your furnace was about to go out.
