The heat from the furnace is always very dry, and it even makes my lips bleed
I like fireplaces better than furnaces, but I also recognize that furnaces are a lot more practical than fireplaces. Honestly, each of them has advantages and disadvantages. If you have a fireplace and a property with a lot of wood, you can save a lot of money on your HVAC bills. You wouldn’t have to use electricity or gas to use your heating system, and that could save you a lot of money in the long run. However, there are disadvantages. Having a fireplace is a hassle when your fireplace goes out. Even though you might load your fireplace with wood during the evening, there is a good chance that your fireplace is going to go out before the morning, and if you don’t have a backup furnace for your house, you will definitely know when your fire goes out. If you have a furnace, you don’t have to worry about the furnace going out in the middle of the night every night. The only thing that you have to worry about is the cost of using that furnace consistently. Still, I know that I like the fireplace better. As a heating system, the fireplace provides much better heat than a furnace. The furnace always makes me feel warm, but the fireplace makes me feel warmer. The heat from the furnace is always very dry, and it even makes my lips bleed. Finally, the ambiance from the fireplace definitely beats the appearance of the furnace. It might seem like a hassle, but if you can afford a fireplace, I would definitely recommend one.
