Once in a while I see comments in this forum from the professionals complaining about getting the same questions from homeowners over and over again.
Perhaps the forum could be modified in such a way that would REQUIRE non-professional prospective (homeowner) members to read a list of recommendations or FAQ's & answers before they could post any questions. You know - choose the contractor, not the brand, quality work & eqpt instead of lowest cost, get load calc done for proper eqpt sizing, advantages of 2-stage vs single stage, variable speed vs multispeed, insulation, ducts, etc. It might help limit the repetition. Just an idea - don't know if it's technically possible.
As non-professional member, I again want to thank the Pro's for allowing homeowners access to the forum and allowing us to post questions.
