    I think the HV guys would say that operating costs would be about the same, since the unit doesn't have to work as hard to reach an even temp, but not sure I believe it. I would really be interested...

    Planning to install a/c in my stone 1940's house. Have been using window units for a few years, which work well and cost me next to nothing in operating costs, but for a lot of reasons we would...

    The odor is right near the boiler (not the tank). No odor when it is not running. It does seem to go away after it has been running for a few minutes.
