From reading posts, it appears that the most significant part of results, when I install central HVAC, is the choice of the installer. While I have many other questions, the key is: does anyone have a good experience with an HVAC contractor who works in center city Philadelphia?
I am against the wall on time because it is a rental house. I have had 8 contractors come to the house, all but one say I should keep the R-22 refrigerant. Does that mean I would get different equipment than with R-410?
None of them have done any of the things that I have read in a quality installation checklist to analyze what is needed. I am desperate.
Answers would be deeply appreciated, and relevant questions that I should ask, too.
It's no secret that rentals are not known for getting the very best consideration as far as upgrade costs are concerned.
Lot of contractors won't do all those niceties you'd expect or your own home like load calcs ect. The ROI is just not there for them. You should make it clear to your contractors if you are going on the cheap or are really willing to invest in a quality system .
