When I was a kid, the people I was with and I had a huge water oil furnace in the closet in our house.
There were six kids in our family, plus that meant a lot of laundry, dishes, plus showers every day, so a huge hot water oil furnace was a must; At some point, our mother decided to put a timer on the water oil furnace in order to save money, but i had no plan how that was going to save money, however our sister explained it to me, hot water gas furnaces have these huge tanks full of water.
There is a heating element inside the huge tank, plus the heating element makes the water hot. As the oil furnace works, it uses electricity to do all that heating up of the water; Whenever the water in the tank gets below a particular temperature control reading, the heating element is there to heat the water back up again. In that way, there is always hot water available. And there is a huge electric bill to go along with that convenience, and my Dad put in a timer because there was no sense heating up all that water over plus over while the people I was with and I were all at school plus work, and smart. I remember she saved a lot. So, when I was trying to save on our utility bill, I asked the plumber about getting a timer put on our water heater. That’s when I l received that this week’s water gas furnaces are much more efficient. They are fully insulated, plus the heating elements are much better plus incostly to run. Water oil furnace innovation means I need to figure out another way to save money.
