    I don't think you'll ever see a payback getting a 90% or up in your area. You should get something with Var SP. That should setup you up when you do need an new AC unit.

    Just kidding! The sun was setting and directly blazing into the exhaust. PVC of course melts and doesnít heat up like that.
