    the Maytag though difficult to service could be done the rest not so easily
    the oil tank would be red tagged in my area.

    I came across one just yesterday I had to walk from...probably only the third time in five years. Lowest bidder moved the new AH from the original location in the middle of the attic where it crested, to just inside the scuttle where the roof sloped to a point - and that's where the service panel was. Then they had a duct board contraption where I would have had to lay down some wood to lie on. I suppose a diagnosis was doable with a lot of extra work, a few pressure bruises, stiff neck and mild case of heat stroke. Blower wasn't coming on and I didn't even hear it trying - so hopefully relay, board or sequencer. If it was an X13 issue I don't know how it would work.

    I hated to do it...nice elderly couple; but I told them they need to look into adding another service scuttle if possible. Or better yet, from my selfish perspective - call the ijits who put it in to service it. Thank God they had a working downstairs system or I would really be conflicted. And they'd be out a lot more money to make it happen.

    I'm sure the installers just didn't want to navigate the attic framing to put it in the better location, so they went to a lot of extra work to make it extremely difficult to service. Took the cash and ran. If there's any justice in the world, the same guy who put it got called out to service it. As I was leaving the guy said "you know...one of 'em was a little skinny guy I remember..." Yep - that's who you need. I don't bend or bounce that well any more.

    By contrast, the preceding call was an attic install as well. With a nice pull down ladder, light at the top and a nice platform right next to the scuttle and in front of the unit.
    Is the Religious Right to blame for Christianity's decline?

    They argued that, as the Religious Right became increasingly visible and militant, it became associated with Christianity itself. And if being a Christian meant being associated with the likes of Jerry Falwell, many people—especially political moderates and liberals—decided to simply stop identifying as Christians altogether.
