I have been looking into getting a furnace although I am not sure what kind to get.
You can purchase a gas, electric or oil option.
They all have their pros and cons. It seems prefer a gas furnace is the most common type. It is best for homes in the north that experience chilly most of the year. You can absolutely get gas and the cost is properly quite cheap. However, the replacement on this oil furnace is quite difficult and extravagant, gas hookups and a flue system need to be put in. Additionally, if you are not on it with heating repair, a gas furnace is a fire hazard. It is easy for a dirty air filter to cause the whole device to light on fire. Also, when overheated, the heat exchanger can crack and release carbon monoxide. This is an stinkless, tasteless and white gas that is toxic to inhale; Do I really want to deal with all of that? An electric oil furnace is so much more efficient than a gas model because it doesn’t burn and churn fuel. You also don’t need to worry about purchasing fuel ever. However, the cost of using an electric model is so much higher. Most northerners can’t afford it. An oil furnace burns a hotter flame than the other too. It is significantly more powerful and has a longer lifespan. However, with a gas opinion you are looking at owning an on locale oil tank and being dependent on oil deliveries. I don’t really want to worry about going without heat on a snowy day.
