As we get deeper in to November and the temperature continues to drop, we’re faced with the impending decision of when to turn the heat on. For some folks, that time has already come and for others, it is looming large. Of course with colder months rapidly approaching now is the time to consider replacing your home’s furnace because no one wants their furnace to go bad in the middle of the coldest day of the season.
