With the gas furnace, your home is always heated to the same temperature.
Technology is the bane of society in my opinion. Technology was supposed to promise us convenience, but in the end, it made our lives more difficult. Sure, washing laundry with a scrub board took longer, but you didn’t have to fix or replace a scrub board. It is also a lot less expensive. Some technology can be more complicated, and I know moderation is the key to using technology. With that being said, I know that furnaces are a piece of technology that is actually superior to other equipment. Furnaces are a common in homes now, and they require no supervision or work on the consumers part. Before, you had to wake up and stack firewood in the fireplace to keep your home warm. This disappointing heating program wasn’t as safe for water pipes and wood that could be warped. With the gas furnace, your home is always heated to the same temperature. Furnaces are also much safer than fireplaces, but unlike space heaters and open flames, gas furnaces reduce the cost of house fires a lot. Furthermore, it is actually cheaper to purchase, install, and fix a gas furnace than a fireplace. The only thing that I can think of that you lose with a fireplace is the romantic atmosphere, but a gas furnace does give you more room in your living room to make it cozier. Finally, electricity isn’t as cheap as wood, but since you pay for electricity at the end of the week, you don’t have to worry about your gas furnace breaking down in the middle of the night! No more chopping wood and keeping a large supply for your fireplace.
