One one hand it's a pain in the ass for me to be at home to have work done. I may have to take a vacation day or something so combining jobs is +EV. Also I don't want the furnace to go out in the middle of winter when I could get gouged.
On the other hand we're in the middle of a shale boom and getting something more efficient probably isn't going to save me a huge amount of money since gas is so cheap, and the only issue I've had with the furnace in 5 years was something clogging the line to the pilot light once
