Since I am a neat freak, this isn’t a worry
For years I just made due with an oil furnace in my home. That is the heating system that came with the house. I figured changing to a different fuel type would be very invasive, time consuming and expensive. I hated that my oil furnace needed an on site oil tank. It looked hideous and took up so much room. The fumeds from the oil furnace weren’t exactly pleasant either. The worst was the fear of not having heat though. Waiting for oil shipments in the winter was always a nail biting experience. Sometimes the shipment got delayed, lost or on back order. That was always horrible to worry that my family would be freezing cold during the holiday season. I finally decided that I was willing to do anything to get a gas furnace instead. The HVAC company I called up was just fantastic. The guy was great at explaining the process and he said it wouldn’t be a big deal to change it. The oil tank was removed and gas hookups and flue network were installed. I love the gas furnace so much better. The gas heater needs to be frequently cleaned and serviced to make sure it doesn’t overheat. It could leak carbon monoxide or catch on fire. Since I am a neat freak, this isn’t a worry. The furnace operates reliably all year long and I never worry about my family being cold. I even signed up for yearly heating maintenance to ensure that I don’t have any accidental heating mishaps.
