You Have Questions?      We have answers!

I'm interested in learning more about installing my own heating and air conditioning system. I have so many questions. What's involved? Where do I start? I never imagined taking on the project of a heating and air conditioning as a do it yourself project. This trade has always been limited for the professionals in the industry. I've always assumed the whole idea of installing a heating and air conditioning system is beyond the realm of even a highly skilled do it yourselfer. Aren't there special licenses involved and highly specialized tools and equipment required? Doesn't somebody have to be licensed, highly trained and experienced to even attempt a heating and air conditioning system? Is a license required to purchase heating and air conditioning equipment? Can I really save enough money to make this a worthwhile do it yourself project? How much can I save? What happens if I have problems? Where do I turn? What if I have warranty problems later on? How will I get warranty support if I need it years from now? How do I know what type or size system would be best for me? Why would I think I can do any better as a do it yourselfer? What happens if I need technical support? Is there any opportunity in this for somebody who doesn't have do it yourself technical skills? I have so many questions and I know there are questions I haven't even thought of yet.
