This one day workshop will guide learners thru basic operations of a heating and cooling system. We cover gas furnaces, air conditioning, heat pumps and hybrid systems. The homeowner will be exposed to new technologies and controls.

The home owner will be shown what to look for in finding an HVAC company for a replacement or new installation, what questions to ask about warranties from the manufacturer, and the installer.
