I have a furnace now, but I wish that I had my old heating system.
I used to have a wood-burning stove, and it was the best heating system that I had.
I wouldn’t have gotten rid of the heating system, but my kids convinced me that I was too old to be using a wood-burning stove to heat my house anymore. Sure, it was hard work to use a wood-burning stove, and when they got finished telling me about all of the benefits of the furnace, I will admit that I was definitely tempted to purchase a furnace. I called the HVAC company, and after talking to the HVAC technician, I got rid of my old wood-burning stove and installed a nice furnace in my house. With my furnace, I never have to worry about heating my house. My furnace works around the clock to make sure that my house is warm. The furnace heats the house much more evenly than my wood stove did, and it is much easier. The only thing that I have to do with my furnace is to adjust the thermostat, and I only need to do that twice a year. However, I miss my wood stove. The wood stove was much cheaper than the furnace. I never had to worry about repairs, and since I got all of my wood for free, I never had to pay for fuel. Most people are willing to give you wood if you pick it up when a tree falls. With the furnace, I pay an arm and a leg for electricity. Also, I miss the exercise. The furnace is definitely easier, but I am growing lazy without the woodcutting and everything else. The furnace is very boring. That is why I miss my old wood stove.
