My furnace is just about an antique.
It was already installed when the people I was with and I bought the house. We have now lived here almost twenty years. We expected to replace the heating system within the first couple of years, but some other project always took precedence. The apartment needed a new roof & new windows. We decided to remodel the living room & lavatorys. The water furnace ruptured & flooded the basement. We wanted a sectional couch & a new television. The furnace has continued to operate year after year, but every winter, it usually requires some minor repair. Every fall, I schedule professional maintenance for the system. The supplier always warns me that the furnace is reaching the end of its maintenance life & suggests that I invest into a new model. I’ve researched the latest innovations in furnaces. There are options on the market that achieve a 98% AFUE rating. They include cost-saving & convenient features such as flexible-speed technology, zone control & Wi-Fi connectivity. My partner & I realize that a new furnace would reduce our energy bills, improve comfort & supply healthier indoor air pollen levels. It’s just such a crucial investment. We keep putting the project off for another year. I am anxious that our furnace will quit in the middle of a Winter time blizzard & not be worth fixing. We will suddenly be without heat when the temperature is down to twenty below zero. Instead of taking our time & choosing the ideal furnace for our needs, we’ll be forced to accept whatever model is available. I have decided that the people I was with and I need to schedule a furnace installation this summer. I think the people I was with and I won’t regret it.
