Do you have a name brand HVAC plan in your lake house or a no name brand? I like to stick with the big name brands as they seem to be the most reliable and offer the best repair for the most part.
I know they can cost a bit more but they usually last longer and are more efficient, so you end up saving money on the back end over time.
I have an electric heating plan now but am thinking about changing to a gas heating plan when it comes time to buy a new HVAC system. I know the gas systems are even more efficient than the electric one I have and cost about the same. I need to check online about this because I am not sure but someone told me that gas is the way to go. I could also look into solar systems because they could be the cheapest of all. I guess they cost more to install however I know they cut your cooling and heating costs down to almost nothing. Again, I need to research them to see what they are capable of doing and to see if they are better than the electric HVAC systems which everyone seems to have. I know I have a few more years till I have to worry about this as our plan is only about ten years old and they told me that they usually last about 13 or so years. I have a few more years to save for that new HVAC system. I can’t wait though!
