When shopping for a new system what should I look for?
First, take a time out and think through what is important to you. Consider how your old system operated and if there are any improvements you would like to make with your new system. Most of the equipment on the market is similar in design and construction so more often than not, the installing contractor and his practices make the difference in satisfactory performance. Look for contractors with a good track record of excellent service. The contractor should have references available. Choose a contractor that is willing to listen to what you want and is willing to work with you to reach your goals. After all, you would not go to a car lot and buy the car the salesman tells you to. If you prefer to get more than one proposal, try interviewing the contractors before even obtaining prices to determine exactly what they offer. Always obtain a detailed written proposal with a predetermined price as well as their license number before you have any work done.
