I live in a numerous story house.
The first floor I rely on a gas fireplace and the hour floor has a small Moore gas furnace.
The fireplace is bigger, newer and gets worked on frequently. Despite this, the seasoned Moore oil furnace is so much better. The Moore heating idea came with the new home when I bought it and was old then. A supplier that is no longer in supplier made these durable gas heating systems way back in the afternoon. They are about the size of a radiator but function as a mini gas furnace. They have a pilot light and everything. The upstairs oil furnace is so much better and it gets no love or care. The upper floor is consistently toasty sizzling all Winter long. Downstairs, the big gas fireplace has some problems staying warm. Sadly, the fireplace is the a single that needs frequent repairs and might need to be updated. The Moore heating idea has gotten no repairs, no service and is still going strong. I believe they used to make gas heating systems way more durable back then. The supplier must have gone out of supplier since there was no need to service the equipment and once you bought a single, it was for life. My mother still has hers in her basement. That heating idea has literally been underwater and survived the tale. It was trying to light and bubbles were coming from it. My heating idea can handle drywall dust, our youngsters banging on it and no cleaning from me year after year. I bet that oil furnace outlasts me.
