As we get a few weeks in to November and the temperature begins to drop, we’re faced with the impending decision of when to flip on the heat. For some folks, that time has already come and for others, it is looming large. Of course with the cold swiftly 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.
