It isn’t always easy saying goodbye to a heating system that has been so loyal.
Maybe it’s just me but I find it kind of sad to see my old furnace go.
It is an old oil furnace that has been servicing my home for almost 20 years now. It has truly given its entire life to make sure that I was comfortable. Only well taken care of heating and cooling systems will last close to 20 years until the fact that mine lasted that long tells me that I must have been doing something right and that makes me really happy. However, I was unhappy to see my old one go. I was equally excited to get a brand new one. Since I have had my old one, technology has evolved as you might imagine. With new technology now available I have more options than ever to get an advanced Heating and AC system. I had decided to go down to my local heating and AC business and take a look at all their HVAC units that they had available. I decided to look at some air conditioning systems even though I wasn’t interested in purchasing an AC unit just yet. For right now, I was just focusing on the heater and they were not short on any HVAC products. They had gas heaters, fireplaces, radiant heated flooring and of course your average central heating system. I knew I would have to do some research before ultimately deciding what would replace my old furnace. But the one thing I did decide to get that day was a smart thermostat, no matter what it was going to run off a smart thermostat.
