Online review sites rarely show all of the evaluations got, and post reviews from sources that are not constantly trustworthy.

Frequently Asked Questions:
Battery Powered, Portable Air Conditioning?
Hey Thanks For Looking.
This Year I Am Going To Bonnaroo (Woot) But I Am Having Quite A Predicament.
Last Year When I Went, I Took My Car (Ford Explorer) Which With The Back Seats Down, Was Quite Comfortable To Sleep In. However, As Soon As The Sun Would Rise, We Would Both Be Forcefully Woken Up To Outstanding Heat. I Am Trying To Figure Out Some Sort Of Air Conditioning System That I Can Take With Me (In Place Of Using My Cars Air Conditioner, And Gas). I'Ve Looked At Small Window Placed Airconditioning Units, And The Kind Of Battery Power They Might Need To Run. I Am Also Interested In The Prospect Of Solar Power Charging And Powering It, But I Am Not Sure If I Could Buy Ample Ammount Of Solar Panels To Fit On The Roof Of My Car And Power The Airconditioner. If Anyone Has Any Experience With This Sort Of Thing It Would Be Very Appreciated.
Air conditioners use large amounts of energy. A small window air conditioner and a small gasoline engine powered generator would be much smaller and lighter than a supply of low tech batteries and thousands of dollars cheaper than a supply of high tech batteries. If you cover your car with solar cells the power would be insignificant compared to the amount needed.

Air Conditioning Costs?
We Already Have Central Heating But No Central Air. Would We Just Have To Buy A Unit And Attach To The Existing Ducts Or Would There Be More To It? Also, How Much Would Something Like This Cost? We Are In Ca.
You can use the same ducts, but it's involved, with more than 1 piece of equipment, and you will need a concrete slab for the condesnser (which is outside).
Central air use about 10 times the watts of window or sleeve sized units. So the ongoing expense is significant. There are ways to cool down a house without central air, but if you're in a real hot area, you will be most comfortable with a central air system. If you live in a more temporate area, you have lots of options. I recommend going to http://www.continuous-home-improvement-h... for more information about alternatives. You can also browse that site for an energy saving comparison and ways to cool your house using regular fans.
Good luck with your decision.
Central Air Conditioning Or Heat Pump?
Well Here'S The Deal,
I Recently Had My Central Air Conditioning Go Out. This Is The Second Time In A Few Years So I Was Wondering Instead Of Fixing It If I Should Just Out Right Replace It With A Heat Pump. I Live In Florida Where It Is Mild To Warm Year Round And This Inherently Raises My Power Bill As The Ac Is On Year Round. I Would Like Something That Is Energy Efficient But Can Stand Up To The Frequent Use Of My House. So What Do You Think?
In the cooling mode, a heat pump is no different that a standard air conditioner as far as operational characteristics (they both remove heat), run-time and efficiency, as long as SEER and BTU ratings are the same. Where you will notice a difference is in the heating mode. A heat pump is more efficient than gas/propane or electric heating. I suggest calling around to two or three reputable HVAC contractors for estimates.
Joining Air Force With Medical Condition?
A Relative Of Mine Is Planning On Joining The Air Force, But He Has Crohn'S Disease, Which Last I Check Is One Of Those Medical Conditions That Are On The List Of Disqualifying Medical Conditions.
Can He Get A Medical Waiver? As A Grunt, I'M Not 100% Sure About This Subject, So I Was Hoping One Of You Out There Might Know Something. Thanks Lads,
There's nothing to stop him from trying, but I wouldn't have him get his hopes up. There's a waiver for everything, but right now the Air Force isn't really hurting for people. So for them, there's plenty of people without chronic conditions that are also willing to join that are just as qualified. Sorry, just the way it is.
