    Kerosene is better

    I can't believe that people actually fall for Edenpure. You get the exact same efficiency from a $20-$50 ceramic heater.

    As far as saving money on space heating, while not for everyone, I love to...

    I would ask these 6 questions

    I got a new A/C system installed this spring. After getting a pretty bad install, I started doing some research on the right way to do things (I know, I should have done all that research first).

    What other details on the Tstat would you need to know? This is a very common Honeywell 5-2 that goes for $ at big box stores. I agree with you that it is doubtful that it has any learning capacity....

    i just got a Comfort series installed

    I just had a new Carrier Comfort Series system installed this spring. My set up is very simple - a 2 ton, cooling only. I live in a smallish, older rowhouse (built 1947). My system has an overall...

  19. Why does a compressor unit need to be level?

    I have read a compressor unit should be set level, but can't find a detailed explanation why. Just curious.

    My Carrier user manual says the compressor manuf specifies it must be level. Would it...

    The guy who did my install seemed just out of trade school (probably a C student) and I think checking for proper air flow was way beyond his IQ. Aside from this whole refrigerant charge thing, I was...
