I honestly have been fed up with everything we have been dealing with in the past few years.
I think the worst thing though is the rising gas prices and the fact that I was still using an oil furnace! The cost of oil went up so high this past winter season, I thought we weren’t going to make it to be honest.
We had some scary times with our finances but we had to continue filling up the oil furnace and it cost us a small fortune. I finally decided that I wanted to convert to a gas furnace. While gas is going up in general, it’s still better than using oil. I consulted with an HVAC technician and he recommended going for a dual-fuel heating system. He said it would be a combination gas furnace working along with a heat pump to provide all the heating and cooling we needed in the house. The system was kind of expensive, but the energy efficiency made it worth it! So far I have only used the cooling system but it has been working great. I can’t wait to see how energy efficient the heating system is. From what the HVAC experts told me, the heat pump will provide heating all the way down to 40 degrees fahrenheit and then the gas furnace will kick on when the temperatures fall below that. From the savings I have had on the cooling of my home, I bet I’m going to save big money in the winter season too! I also expect the heating in the home to be super comfortable.
