Sandy Wiped out HVAC - I need advice
I am in charge of shopping for new HVAC systems, for myself and my Mother (gas furnaces and central air units for two 1000 - 1200 square foot 3 bedroom homes which were wiped out by Sandy). I have to keep the cost low because we don't know what the insurance will pay, yet I don't want cheap energy hogs. (Why did NJ get rid of energy efficiency rebates?) I don't buy a toaster without consulting consumer reports and then checking every price I can find (that's why my Mom's purchases fall to me). I don't know when I will have the time to do this research as I am still gutting and cleaning up. Any suggestions?
