You may be surprised to learn that I have intentionally kept our old furnace.
I particularly prefer our old oil furnace, I recognize that most people would have had it changed out for a new a single by now but I see no need to swap it out for a new a single. If it is not broken why would I need to repair it? You would be surprised how several people particularly get on to me about keeping an old furnace. Truly, I am not sure why it matters to them so much but I intend to keep it for as long as I can. My oil furnace have repair me well for over 20 years & as long as it continues to do so I will continue to keep it. My family keeps snagging me about it saying that I need to get a new a single because eventually it’s going to split down but I tell him that I have had it correctly maintained in repair by the heating & AC company & the last time I had the Heating & A/C guy out here I asked him if I would need to worry about replacing anytime soon & he told me that I would not have to worry about replacing it for a long time because despite his age it was still an excellent condition. So I particularly do not have anything to worry about. I think the issue is is that our family are all about having the best of the best new appliances, & this is no weird with Heating & A/C products so when they see me having something from a weird era I think it weirds them out. They can think what they prefer but for me our furnace is perfect.
