Oil or Gas: Which Furnace is Right for You and the Tomball Weather?

Heating

As we get deeper in to November and the temperature continues to dip, we’re faced with the imminent decision of when to turn the heat on. For some families, that time has already come and for others, it is looming large. Of course with winter rapidly approaching now is the time to take in to consideration replacing your home’s furnace because no one wants their furnace to go kaput in the middle of the coldest day of the year.

So when the time comes to replace your furnace, how do you know which option to choose between an oil furnace or a gas furnace? Well we’re here to help answer that for you. After all, there’s no reason to be bundled up in 10 layers in the middle of January because you didn’t know your furnace was on its last legs.
