As we get a few weeks in to November and the temperature starts to fall, we’re faced with the approaching decision of when to turn the heat on. For some people, that time has already come and for others, it is looming large. Of course with the cold quickly 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 month.
