Technology is the bane of society in my opinion. Technology was supposed to promise us but in the end, it made our lives more annoying. Sure, cleaning laundry with a wash board took longer, but you didn’t have to fix or replace a wash board! It is also a lot cheaper. Some technology can be more complicated and I know moderation is the key to using technology! With that being said, I think that a heating system is a piece of technology that is honestly superior to other equipment. Furnaces are common in houses now,and they require no supervision or job on the consumers part. Before, you had to wake up and stack firewood in the fireplace to keep your home warm. This terrible heating system wasn’t as safe for water pipes and to the wood that could be warped. With a heating system your house is typically heated to the same temperature. Furnaces are also much safer than fireplaces, unlike space heating systems and open flames, oil heating systems reduce the spread of house fires significantly. Furthermore, it is actually cheaper to purchase, install and fix a furnace than a fireplace. The only thing that I can think of is that you lose with a fireplace is the romantic atmosphere, however a furnace does give you more room in your living room to make it cozier. Finally, electricity isn’t as cheap as wood, but since you spend money for electricity at the end of the month, you don’t have to worry about your furnace shutting down in the middle of the night. No more chopping wood and keeping a big supply for your fireplace.
