When you’re looking for a new home, it can be an exciting adventure – and it can also be a stressful time. There are many things to consider when shopping for a house, including the HVAC system, which typically is the home’s largest and most expensive appliance. The more information you have about the heating and cooling systems in your potential New Jersey home, the better. First off, you want to check both the heating and air conditioning systems to ensure they are functioning properly.
