When you have an aged gas furnace it can be a hassle to refill the tank! It all depends on where you are living.
You might find it hard to fill up with gas due to costs, availability plus time.
The newer styles of gas furnaces use big hookups plus a flue network. You don’t need to worry about a tank filled with gas. This is not the model of gas furnace I am talking about. I am speaking of the older equipment way back when I was a child. The kind that were around almost since the start of heating equipment being formed. I know that it is stupid to bring this up. There is hardly anyone in the world these days that have this kind of aged heating tech anymore. I will say that I still have this kind of gas heating though. They last way longer, never need a gas furnace repair, but are a pain in the butt to deal with in terms of filling them up. I have a very old home plus the furnace basically was built into the house. So removing it would be an expensive pain. While the gas furnace operates, I might as well use it right? I found it hard to find a place to get gas to bring home in order to refill my tank though. The gas in the tank also seems to run out a whole bunch! Going to the store in the cold season to fill with gas is annoying. Replacing the gas in the cold basement is not a good time either. What is it like? For those too young to know, assume that it is like filling your car’s gas tank.
