I have honestly been aggravated with the rising cost of oil for the oil furnace.
I honestly wished I had decided to upgrade to a gas furnace just like our neighbors next door chose to do.
They were smart though because the natural gas was so much cheaper to provide heating to the home. The good news was that they let us transfer the remaining oil they had in their oil furnace over to ours which surprisingly was a good amount. It saved us a pretty good amount this past winter but honestly, I’m thinking about going for an upgrade before the next winter. I’m not really sure just yet if I want to go for a gas furnace or something else like a heat pump. I mean, the winters around here rarely go into the negative temperatures so a heat pump could potentially work. A friend of mine was telling me that I should look into a hybrid heating system because they provide the best heating and are extremely energy efficient on top of that. I was told that if I go that route, I would probably want to go with a gas furnace combined with the heat pump. Of course, I could use another type of furnace, even an electric one! I was thinking about getting solar panel hook ups, so in that case it might be a smart move to go all electric. Whatever the case may be, I plan on having an HVAC professional come out to help me figure out the best HVAC plan for my home.
