Re: Just hot everywhere

Jim, when I replaced my furnace and a/c the price was $5600 and included an
April-Air unit to add moisture.  But like you, it was a replacement, we
already have ductwork.  Chris would have to have ducts installed which would
really add to the ticket.

My sister has a larger house than I do and they use window units which work
well.  Some newer a/c units are very efficient and will cool quite a bit of
area.  My nephew in NC said the a/c units on base aren't strong enough so he
bought one himself because he couldn't sleep.  He said it was worse than
summer in Iraq.  Iraq was hotter but drier.
