I read a pretty messed up news story in my local news the other day.
I was reading about this house in my area that completely burned down because of a short in the central heating and air conditioning system! I had never heard of such a thing happening nor did I know it was even possible for a house to burn down from a short in a central heating and air conditioning system unit.
Thankfully no one was hurt or killed in the fire. But I feel really bad for the family whose home it was. All because of a cheap central heating and air conditioning system with faulty wiring they lost their home. It made me really think about the next central heat and a/c unit I buy. I am due for a brand new and up to date central heating and air conditioning system. After reading about that really bad fire it woke me up to the fact that I really need to make sure that the next central heat and a/c unit that I buy is going to be of the most top of the line and best build that would not even have a chance of a fault in the wiring causing a serious fire that would burn my house down! This is the first and foremost thing to look into before even thinking about HVAC brand or even the SEER rating. I would rather have a low SEER rating central heating and air conditioning system that was one hundred percent safe in terms of wiring than a SEER rating higher but having weak or faulty wiring.
