Because I have lived most of our life in the south, I consider myself fortunate, but so numerous people transfer down here from the north every year in an attempt to get away from shoveling snow and sizable heating bills.
I suppose oil and gas furnaces are exceptionally extravagant to run, particularly the fuel oil furnaces…
And people must have them when they live in snow country. As an adult, I have only had an oil or gas furnace once in our life, then my spouse and I bought a 1950s brick beach condo about twenty years ago, and it was set up with an electric central a/c and a fuel oil furnace. All of us had no plan how to even use the heater; the two of us had to ask the realtor, and she didn’t know what to do either. So, the two of us had to call and ask the previous homeowners. I was shocked when I found out that I would have to call a separate fuel oil business and have them come out and fill up our oil furnace’s fuel oil tank; the tank was under the ground, which I am sure was not at all convenient if it got a crack or something. Anyway, I am grateful that I did not have to use the furnace for unquestionably long; in this area, oil gas furnaces are necessary only for a short time each year. I guess I had the fuel oil business come only once; the two of us only lived there four years, and the two of us never needed more fuel oil in all that time! Now, I simply have central heating and cooling, and all I need to do to go from the cooling system to the furnace is flip a switch from a single side of the thermostat to the other. It’s fabulous in my opinion.
