But when it comes to prevention, people often wonder: what am I really paying for?

Is It Time to Replace Your Inefficient Furnace or Air Conditioner Unit?

People often fail to realize that the painful one-time cost of buying a new unit can be a serious blessing in disguise. If your furnace, air conditioner or indoor air quality unit is more than 10 years old, a sudden breakdown could actually save you money.
