As we get further in to November and the temperature begins to fall, we’re faced with the imminent decision of when to flip on the heat. For some people, that time has already come and for others, it is looming large. Of course with colder months swiftly approaching now is the time to consider replacing your home’s furnace because no one wants their furnace to go out in the middle of the coldest day of the season.
