Re: Another OT


Thanks, Bonnie....that's what I thought; that you needed ducts to do
the job.  That's my problem...no ducts - well, except in the office
which does have air conditioning.  Hmmm....wonder if something can be
rigged that way...hmmm....but, the house has no air conditioning and
hot water baseboard heat - so no ducts:-(

The geothermal heat pump is neat....have known about that power for
heating and cooling for a long time, but not found anyone who
actually used it.
