I'm back. This time better prepared. Please help me choose HVAC.
I'm back with more detailed information on quotes. Please help me decide what will work best in my home.

My current HVAC system is 50 years old and on it's last leg. I'm preparing to upgrade the system before it dies on me in the middle of winter.I'm not quite sure if the third contractor was just more thorough or if I kind of knew what to ask about this time around.
