gas vs oil heat
WE just converted from oil to gas in our 100 yr old house. Gas is certainly quieter and cleaner, and probably cheaper than our oil newish oil furnace. The trouble is with keeping up with the need for heat. I have not read anything that compares the delivery of heat. With oil I kept the thermostat at 65 to 68 in the day and 55 to 58 at night. That doesn't wotk with gas. In very cold weather the gas furnace takes half a day to reach 66, my current day setting. The gas technician said to keep the thermostat at 66 both day and night. Can you explain why? Are we just not getting sufficient gas into the furnace (a new pipe and meter were installed for our gas furnace)?
