After I first moved into my house, it was outfitted with an older oil furnace.
I wasn’t happy with this style of gas furnace.
Oil heating systems are dirty, create fumes and are excruciating for the environment. They aren’t overly energy smart and are seriously inconvenient. I needed to be conscientious about making fuel delivery. I’d then waste a day, waiting around for the delivery to be completed. I hated the sacrificing space to the sizable tank in my yard, and it was terribly ugly. I also worried about a leak and running out of heat while in the middle of a winter blizzard. In my local area, the temperature can drop down to twenty below freezing. Every one of us can’t just live without heat until we can manage to workout a delivery of fuel. I expected that the conversion from oil to gas heating would be quite pricey and complicated. After living with the oil furnace for a couple of years, I finally contacted an Heating and A/C contractor for an estimate. I was pleasantly surprised by the ease of the change and went ahead with the upgrade of a natural gas gas furnace. The entire project required a home improvement loan, even though I was more than ready to make the investment. The new gas furnace is so much more energy smart that it’s pretty much paying for itself. It filters contaminants out of the indoor air and maintains a very even temperature. There’s no bad smell and the device is quiet, clean and safe.
