    They're just reporting info someone else provided; possibly an a/c contractor. I hate it when credibility is given so matter of fact. The prices are useless I agree.

    NFW.
    I will kiss the South end of a North bound hog and allow it to be promoted on tv if this is true. You can't even buy the in door unit for that.

    And when useless data is reported about one aspect. You know they didn't bother to verify the rest of it either.

    How many times must one fix something before it is fixed?

    CB isn't fond of links being posted to begin with. Might want to edit it out.

    Exspecially since it gives such bogus price info.

I realize that a difference of a couple of notches is just sampling noise. What I want to find out is whether there are any brands that are *really bad*.
    Statistics works with known facts (correct me if iam wrong).

    If you don't know what brands are buplicates of others, and who is slinging bull (overexagerating: it happens among the pros here and else where) and what statements by HOs are making based more on suggestion then actual fact, how will you be able to extract any honest and unbiased and subjective conclusions?
