As we get a few weeks in to November and the temperature begins to dip, we’re faced with the imminent 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 colder months quickly approaching now is the time to take in to consideration replacing your home’s furnace because no one wants their furnace to go bad in the middle of the coldest day of the month.
