Most people take for granted the comfort provided by their central air conditioner, heat pump or furnace until something goes wrong and the unit needs to be serviced or replaced.
When this happens, you need a quality heating, ventilating and air conditioning (HVAC) contractor who is knowledgeable, skilled and qualified to do the job.
If your air conditioning or heating system fails you are faced with a choice to repair the existing unit by replacing parts or by buying a new air conditioner or furnace. Some air conditioning and heating companies push a certain solution based on what is convenient to them or what method earns them the most money. Learn how to find the solutions that are best for you.

It is not always easy to pin-point the problem, but fixing it can make your home more energy-efficient and comfortable.
