Preparing for the cold weather

This winter, I almost decided to switch over to a wood-burning gas furnace instead of using a normal oil furnace.

My old oil furnace stopped working, and I knew that I was going to have to replace it before the colder weather came.

However, since I had time to get the gas furnace ready, I had the opening to switch over from an oil furnace to any other style of gas furnace, and one of our friends tried to convince me to use a wood-burning stove to heat my house. I even discovered that you can use the wood-burning stove to cook and heat your water for showers and baths! I began looking into the wood-burning gas furnace, and I discovered that the cost of this natural gas furnace was the same as the cost of the normal oil furnace when it came to purchasing the wood-burning stove and installing it. However, I didn’t change our mind until I learned how overpriced it would be to purchase wood. Unless you have friends who are always giving you wood or unless you have a wooded property where you could cut down and prepare your own wood, you will find that wood-burning stoves are going to cost a lot more to use than a traditional oil furnace. You might spend money around sixty dollars for a bundle of wood, and this bundle might only last you a month or so. If you decide to switch to a traditional HVAC system, make sure that you do your research first. I decided to stick with an oil furnace instead of making the jump because it made more sense to me.
