As we get deeper in to November and the temperature starts to drop, we’re faced with the imminent decision of when to turn the heat on. For some families, that time has already come and for others, it is looming large. Of course with the cold rapidly approaching now is the time to think about replacing your home’s furnace because no one wants their furnace to go kaput in the middle of the coldest day of the year.
