Ok I read the rules sounds like be polite,give general advice to homeowners nothing specific, and no pricing.
I mean, if they ask how often to change their filters, cool, tell 'em, or if they ask what the differences are in efficiencies, or types of units, that's great. I wish more of my residential customers would come here and do some research before calling and saying "what kind of heat should I get"...
