I have genuinely been frustrated with the rising cost of oil for the oil furnace, but I wish I had decided to upgrade to an oil furnace just like my 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 have the remaining oil they had in their oil furnace over to ours which surprisingly was a large amount.
It saved us a pretty good amount this past winter but honestly, I’m thinking about going for a replacement before the next winter. I’m not actually sure just yet if I want to go for a gas oil 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 plan 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 entirely want to go with a gas furnace combined with a heat pump. Of course, I could use another kind 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 Heating and Air Conditioning professional come out to help me figure out the best Heating and Air Conditioning system for my home.
