Hello - my neighbor contacted me after he saw too many HVAC personnel visiting my house. He's 85 and I want to help him (not at all savvy with computers). His house details are same as mine.
It's a 1964 2 storied townhouse with basement. Current HVAC is in basement, duct-work available. His furnace is oil-based and currently he has window ACs.
He's wanting to replace the entire setup with a modern HVAC system, heat and cold, with heat from gas only. There are no options (Condo doesn't allow) for geo, or any systems in attic. His budgets are limited. Total square feet is 1500, including basement. Basement walls are partly insulated. He got offers from Lennox, Sears, York, etc., etc. Any thoughts or leads would be helpful to help him identify the system? He's looking at make/model and ease of operations and low on maintenance and energy costs.
