Heating, Air Conditioning, Fridge, HVAC/Best to buy


We think we might need to buy a new HVAC system for gas heat and air conditioner. We have never purchased one before so need advice as to what is the best to buy for a small 1286 square foot home.
Also which is the best quality so repairs are minimal and also runs quietly. The one we have now is very noisy plus we hate to keep putting money into it as it is more than 10 years old. (It was here when we bought the house 10 years ago.) Need heat right now so have called repair man but looking for advice as to what to buy. We live in south Texas so have brutal summer heat and a short winter but with some temps that are below freezing.  

      All major brands make a good unit - Rheem,Trane, Lennox, Carrier . Really the quality of the install can make a huge difference on the performance of your system . Get multiple estimates - check the reviews of the companies and go from there.
