    FAQ

    Moderator please move this if necessary.

    I'm curious why there isn't a faq for those 10 or so questions that the pros here answer daily ? Ideally, at the top of this forum.

    I'm sure the Trane unit is nice, but from what I see it is significantly more money. I'm going to look at the custom one and compare.
