Moving from south to north, and needing a furnace

Do you think the difference between the seasons of Summer, Fall, and Spring in the Deep South region of the country? It’s a joke, because there is no difference between those several seasons! During the coldest days of Winter time I might experience a few weeks of frigid weather, however nothing that a hoodie and a hat can’t handle.

I have lived in the south my whole life, until a few weeks ago when I moved into the far north to be with my long-distance wifey.

I am still in the middle of my transition, and getting used to the fact that I need to use a furnace almost every day. In my aged home I could go for weeks on end without ever using the furnace once! Up here in the great colorless north the home doesn’t even have an a/c, because it is so rarely needed. Not only is there a substantial central furnace in the place, however there are also multiple back-up systems in place. In the basement there is an antique furnace that hasn’t been used in over a decade. Allegedly it’s still functional, however this furnace is so aged and dusty I don’t even want to touch it. Also I have a tile fireplace in the front room of the home. I enjoy the program of a tile fireplace, however it does seem enjoy a lot of labor when I could just click the control machine instead. The fact that I have several weird furnaces, and there is no a/c at all, still seems crazy to me!
