Question

A new furnace for your small factory will cost $34,000 and a year

to install, will require ongoing maintenance expenditures of $2,200 a year. But it is far more fuel-efficient than your old furnace and will reduce your consumption of heating oil by 3,100 gallons per year. Heating oil this year will cost $3 a gallon; the price per gallon is expected to increase by $0.50 a year for the next 3 years and then to stabilize for the foreseeable future.
