    Energy Audit? That would be a generous term for what they did. The state offered "free" (nee, tax payer funded) energy audits. In reality, it was a few high school grads who probably went through a...

    AC is not important down there as it rarely gets above 75 during the hottest days of the summer. Another option, does anyone make a boiler small enough to heat just that room though either radiant...
