I am looking for a heating and cooling system. I have been reading online to try to learn as much as I can. The consensus view is installation is more important than brand name. Nevertheless, I'm going to go with a Carrier or a Trane for piece of mind.
I have contacted Sears and Home Depot. Sears send out the salesperson and he knows what he's talking about. I like his offer but haven't commit. I talked to a subcontractor from Home Depot (Bel-Air Heating Cooling) and he seemed like he knows what he's talking about too. However, I am uneasy at the moment because many posters recommend looking for a private contractor who knows what he's doing. I want to but don't know who to contact since I do not know anyone who knows a private contractor who will do a good job.
I live in Orange County, CA or Southern California and it would be great if someone can point me to the right direction. How is Bel-Air Heating Cooling? I tried to find reviews online but didn't find any. They are certified to install Trane, which I know require contractors to know what they are doing.
