    "hvac" is not a component, it's the name for the entire system in your home. In general, you'll need to go through a dealer. I've installed mini-split systems and then hired a pro to come in and charge/start the system... this can save you some cash. However, not all dealers want to deal with this.

    Will your insurance cover you for damage if the unit is not professionally installed? It may be cheaper in the long run to have somebody install it for you.

    Don't bother with replacing an entire water heater. Replace the elements as needed and pay the difference to someone competent enough to install the indoor/outdoor havoc units. Unless you can do a solid solder and pressure test it yourself to make sure you have it right, it is really not worth the difference. This isn't like making a Pinterest wreath, it takes a bit of skill.

    The only way I know of that you can save significantly on new HVAC components is to have someone licensed buy it for you at wholesale. Other than that, what you are talking about is typically going to be expensive.

    You can find a decent priced lightly used units on CL or in the paper...If you see a repairman while driving around, ask him if they do any work off the books for cash...They will most of the time...Permits... now that's some funny $hit there....

    Let's be clear though, last I knew, it was illegal by federal law to so much as hook up a set of gauges to a refrigeration system without being EPA certified. If someone chooses to violate federal law, it would be a rather poor decision to blab about it on the internet.

    This should be good.
    Punctuation is important. It's the difference between "I helped my uncle, Jack, off a horse" and "I helped my uncle Jack off a horse"

    The mini split AC units-something like motel Acs-
    1) Are cheap to buy
    2) Very efficient now-11+ EER OR SEER-but effectively match 15+ SEER central units-since you only cool the rooms you are using.
    3)Cinch to install-no brazing soldering on some
    4)No filthy impossible to clean air ducts-no matter the claim-air ducts ALWAYS get crapped up with allergens/dust/mold-forget really cleaning them-you just loosen the crap in them when you attempt to clean them.
    Oh well
    Charlie
    PS- much much cheaper to DIY if you can. It was tough to get your hands on refrigerants now in some states-perhaps that has changed.Minisplits are pre-charged I think.
    PPS- If this is dated-sorry.

    My unit is 12 years old and might need changing soon... I will get a certified guy to do it on the side but i will buy a unit that is previously owned if i can get a better deal...I mean a REALLY good deal... Who has to know... Me and him...My neighbour just had to change a fan on a 3 ton Trane with variable speed fan and after all was said n done it was $1100.00 ..for a freaking fan...The tech said he wouldn't put one of those units in his own house...Might be hard to stop a Trane but once it stops it costs a whole lot of money to start back up...
    Goodman Manufacturing Company makes units for several major manufacturers like Amana and other well know companies...That is what i have and if i do use a HVAC Company, that is what i will go back with also...
