My hubby plus I have lived in our home for nearly twenty years. The heating plus cooling method was already installed when the two of us purchased the house, plus the equipment was not modern at the time. We’ve been fortunate that the oil furnace plus a/c have been quite reliable over the years. I’m sure that keeping up with annual professional repair plus air filter changes has promoted smooth operation. Unfortunately, the oil furnace now needs to be upgraded. Over the last couple of years, I’ve observed a steady increase in the bi-weekly energy bills. The oil furnace is really putting out less air plus running for much longer cycles. On especially freezing nights, it can no longer keep up with demand. While I hate to spend the cash on a modern oil furnace plus deal with the whole replacement process, I am uneasy to have the modern heating method up plus running. I took the chance to research numerous makes plus models, plus decided to spend a bit more to take advantage of some innovative features. The oil furnace I chose achieves a 98% AFUE rating, which will significantly reduce running costs. It has the capability of increasing capacity between 40 plus 100% percent, allowing it to operate at lower speeds for longer cycles. This not only optimizes efficiency, but reduces sound levels plus temperature swings. The modern oil furnace is also protected by advanced safety features, more effectively filters indoor air, plus easily helps with humidification. The oil furnace is stressed to be installed at the start of next week, plus I’m super excited. This year, I’ll easily be looking forward to the freezing Winter weather.
