As we get further in to November and the temperature starts to fall, we’re faced with the imminent decision of when to switch over to heating our home. For some folks, that time has already come and for others, it is looming large. Of course with the cold rapidly approaching now is the time to take in to consideration replacing your home’s furnace because no one wants their furnace to go out in the middle of the coldest day of the season.
