An oil furnace is unusual around here but I have one

I bought a home that was built in the 1960s oh, and is very close to the hospital.

What that means is that in the 1960s this was a top-notch, gorgeous home.

What it means now is that it is less than average because it is so outdated. Homes from this era did not have anything even close to an open-concept. The flooring and Cabinetry and so on are quite old-fashioned. There’s one thing that I did not know, though, and that has to do with the heating and cooling system. I grew up in this Southern State, and I have never seen anything other than window air conditioning units and central heating and cooling systems. Well, recently I have known people to buy mini split air conditioners. But at the time I bought my house, I had never seen any kind of heater other than the heating that comes with central air conditioning. It turns out, though, my house actually has an oil furnace. This means that in order to get heating to the house, I have to call a company that comes out and puts heating oil into this humongous tank that is buried in my backyard. I had absolutely no idea that such a thing existed. I did not know that there was even such a thing as heating oil. The only kind of oil I have ever been familiar with is the kind you put in your car, the kind you cook with, and the kind you spray on a squeaky hinge. I must say that I do find the oil furnace to be quite reliable in that it Heats my house up quite quickly. Also, unfortunately, it is quite expensive as well.
