As we get a few weeks in to November and the temperature starts to drop, we’re faced with the imminent 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 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 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.
