My oil furnace isn’t worth it

I am not a real big fan of our oil furnace, however the heating plan is constantly a pain in the butt, and it is a entirely needy type of heater; With a boiler you can basically ignore it for fifty years & it doesn’t matter, and sure you pay a high initial cost, but after that it requires basically no heating repair.

The only time the boiler needs to be replaced is when new parts are no longer made, and heated flooring is protected under there.

The Heating, Ventilation, & A/C business can’t even access it… Besides checking to make sure it still works, what is he going to do? A oil furnace requires yearly heating repair though. The oil furnace sucks up quite a bit of dust, and even replacing the air filter every month isn’t fine enough. The dust gets into the inner workings & slows down the product. If you arne’t on it with cleaning, the dust could cause the plan to run longer, harder hours. Teh gas furnace then would overheat & potentially catch on fire. If it overheats & has a cracked heat exchanger, that is almost worse; A disfigured heat exchanger means it is time for a new oil furnace. The heat exchanger is a entirely overpriced part, nearly as much as a new oil furnace. It also releases carbon monoxide when cracked. This is a colorless gas that is poisonous to inhale, but you could die from prolonged exposure. So to ensure our family is safe, I need to scrub & care for this equipment constantly. It isn’t even the best type of gas furnace on the market either. It is more work than it is worth.
