Hi everyone, I hope my questions are appropriate. I'm a DIY guy, but I know where my limits are, and HVAC is where I draw the line. I purchased my first home 2 months ago and it came with a 20 year oil furnace that I had inspected by a local company. They said that none of it was installed right, it was leaking, the heat exchanger was cracked, and I run the risk carbon monoxide poisoning.
I have since ripped out all the old ductwork, the old furnace, and am about to get the old tank pulled out of the ground. I have been given some contact information about some local companies, but not sure how to go about finding a reputable company. I've talked to a few friends and I'm leaning towards a heat pump. My house is only 844 sq. feet, 2 bed, 1 bath. And I want to put a wood stove in it too.
Should I just go to say Carrier's website and find the closet dealer?
Is there a list of reputable installers on this site that are close to my area. I really like community web sites like this, I feel that the best professionals are on here, and would like someone that cares about their work.
I'm in Fleetwood, NC if that matters.
