Oil or Gas: Which Furnace is Right for You and the Abilene Weather?
As we get further in to November and the temperature begins to dip, we’re faced with the impending decision of when to turn the heat on. 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 take in to consideration replacing your home’s furnace because no one wants their furnace to go out in the middle of the coldest day of the season.
So when it’s time to get 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 bundled up in 10 layers in the middle of January because you didn’t know your furnace was about to go out.
