When getting a furnace for your home, most homeowners tend to go with a model that is powered by natural gas. However, an oil-powered furnace can be the better option, even if it isn't the most traditional choice. Here are 4 reasons to get a furnace powered by oil.

For example, if your AC seems sluggish, or if your home feels stuffy and unclean, you may need to change your air filter sooner and clean out openings of your air vents.
