I dont know where this specifically states that it can replace a central heating system. WINDOW UNITS have sq footage capacities on them too and BTU capacities. Somehow people don't get the same affect out of a 24k btu window unit as they do a central system??? HMMM
Nowhere in my posts do I actually claim to give a crap about this whole subject to the degree you seem to be pushing it nor do I ever defend the manufacturers either. The only reason I ever got involved with stoves and inserts was because I partnered with a family member that did them at the time and it never worked out. I never really enjoyed working on them but they do have their place in life. I think people that spend a majority of their time in a family room that dont want to heat a whole house and like the ambiance of a stove have a use for them. To treat the thing like a replacement unit for your central heating system is asinine and stupid. Until the manufacturer comes out and "claims" it to be a replacement for your furnace or boiler then you really have no point.
Now on the other subject of you personally attacking my ability and KNOW HOW, I suggest you drop me an email if you want to get this personal, as the site rules dont allow me to respond the way I would like to. I can tell from your credentials (oh wait... you dont have any listed...never mind) I can almost guarantee that I have seen and worked on more than you have in this field and I would never talk down to you like that so dont assume that I am some young punk out of vo tech that doesn't know any better. Or that I am some residential king that has never worked on anything under 5 ton. You got some personal gripe with quad then take it up with them. YOU DONT want to drag me into a whizzing contest though and start personally attacking me because I had a comment on the subject.
AHHH well I just realized your probably a controls guru from your other posts. That explains alot and now I understand why you think your so far superior than the rest of us grunts. I haven't met a controls guy yet that doesn't think he is gods gift to the world. My sincere apologies Oh Mr controls king.
