    Cold weather installs

    I dont like them....I want to be warm all the time with a cup of tea in my hand. I want to just point to where things go and have it done. I want shag carpeting and throw pillows in my van and a small fridge with top shelf beverages. Is this too much too ask from Santa?

    many moons ago in the cold Chicago basements, when we were changing out boilers, we would light off the gas line after the gas cock at the union to keep warm

    Just a little bit though, not like a torch...lol

    If I was told I had to choice 105 * and 100% RH with the Sun blazing down and no breeze for 8 hrs working on a RTU. Or a Curb mount RTU and it 10* and sloppy wet snow. I say give me the heat any day.

    I'd take the cold. If you know how to dress, you can deal with it.

    There is only so much that you can take off and still remain within the bounds of decency.

    Or the worst to me is 100* out side work on the Cond then in to a -16* box(s) and that goes on all day. Freeze and Fry.
