Thanks, Ned. That's something to look into.
But no Stephen King reference? :wink:


OK since you asked nicely:

"Oh yes, we all float - and when you're down here with us, you'll float too!"

But seriously, check ou that Sears thing. We got a unit for our downstairs and one for the upstairs bedroom for approx $700 delivered right to our door.


Ned, let me get this straight. You paid $700 for two air conditioners delivered "right to our front door?"

A) Air conditioners aren't that heavy. It's not like you bought a refrigerator or anything.

B) Who would pay $350 for an air conditioner? If you're going to pay $700 to cool your home, you may as well spend the extra money and have central air installed. Your monthly bill would be less and it would add to the value of your home.

C) You financed an air conditioner? Are you saving up for that microwave that you put on layaway?

D) What in the hell is wrong with you?

If you need someone to manage your money, I'd be happy to help out. Perhaps a few less donations to the Swiftboaters is in line.

Hey, pj, maybe Ned isn't as old as you. Financing $700 would be an amazing feat for my household.
BTW-it was Bogosh, not Bogart, but thanks for answering...

Ned is clearly older than me. If Ned was in his twenties, or even his early thirties, perhaps I could understand. He said he bought his first home in Fitchburg in the 80's. I would guess that Ned is in his late 40's or 50's, and often comments on cashing in on stock market slides, meaning he has excess cash to invest (or he's a liar).

I'm only 33, and by no means wealthy. I can certainly cough up $1000 in a pinch, though.

God knows why I'm replying to this polished knob/rusty tool known as pj. I guess it's only to (again) highlight his second grade reading comprehension skills.

First, I built a house in Madison in the 90s.

To answer each point (And feel free to move your lips when reading, it may aid in comprehension)

A. I said if your local store is sold out, you may order from Sears.com and it will be deilvered to your front door. Such was the case for me during the '01 heatwave.
B. Have ya ever heard of homes heated by radiators Frank Lloyd Wrong? No duct work Boob Vila. Get it?
C. No finance charges for a year. Zero. Nada. Matches your brainwave output. That means if you pay off the balance on day 364, you will have paid no finance charges. That means you're playing with Sears money for a year and screwing an evil corporation. Right up your dead-end alley, no doubt.
D. I will spare you the added embarrassment of responding to this point as I am firmly against mistreating retarded children.

I'm so sorry, Ned. I didn't realize that you were such a brilliant economist. It's ok to pay twice what the unit is worth, because you don't have to pay for it for a whole year! That kind of reminds me of Bush's economic policies. Congrats on "stickin' it to the man."

That's quite a moronic statement since you have no idea about the size of the area I'm trying to cool. But from the mouths of morons some good can come:

If others are thinking about buying an AC unit, they should hunt down a handy dandy calculator that will tell you what size unit you'll need in BTUs to cool the square feet of a given area. They're available all over the Internet.

You don't want to be dumb like pj and buy whatever's on sale at Home Depot. A unit that is too small may not cool your desired space or may work too hard and break after a year or too.

Unit expense is relative as you need to have the right size unit for your needs.
