As we get deeper in to November and the temperature starts to dip, we’re faced with the approaching decision of when to switch over to heating our home. For some families, that time has already come and for others, it is looming large. Of course with winter swiftly approaching now is the time to think about replacing your home’s furnace because no one wants their furnace to go kaput in the middle of the coldest day of the season.
