Spot on. I have one of these and it works great. Have to remember to shut it off before summer, but it keeps the humidity up in winter so it feels warmer than it actually is. This allows me to save some $$ by k...

That is my friend JPinLondon who swiped the banner. I ended up having to run a little interference with those two guys with the banner. He posts here every now and then, but he is in Europe right now getting ready to fly back to the states tomorrow. I would give him a call if I could to get his syno...

I live in Cincinnati and have experience with the snow and salt. The salt will NOT rust your car after one event. We've had nearly 30 inches of snow this winter so far and there has been salt on the road for the past two months almost continually.
Yes, if you do not wash your car for a few years ...

I've specified and installed a bunch of these in warehouses and manufacturing areas of places I have worked. Very quiet and efficient for their size. Of course I was buying the 16 and 20 ft versions, but I am sure they scale down nicely.
