  1. I enjoy reading your knowledge! Our gas boiler, hot water heater & 2 central a/c units were compromised by salt water in the sandy storm. We got an inflated proposal of $12k for a wall mounted 90% boiler, We considered a more efficient greener cooling/heating system in geothermal & were told if we didn't insulate our attic first we would be loosing 10% of our heat anyway. Not sure if you're familiar with it but we were quoted over $40k for a 3 ton climatemaster that, when assessed by another guy were told it wasn't sufficient to heat our 2800 sq foot home & would constantly rely on stage 3 emergency heat, which would rise our electric bills & defeat the purpose of geo thermal. We never received schedule J calculations either. Our concern is the heat is set up with baseboards. The house, built in 1964 (which we moved into 4 months ago) is all stone on the first level and we are sure it will be cold. Any advice? Thanks!
  2. Hi I enjoy reading your posts, you are quite knowledgable! Our gas boiler, hot water heater and a/c two zone units were compromised by salt water in the sandy storm. We got an inflated proposal of $12k from a plumber for a wall mounted high efficiency boiler, but it would be another 3 weeks to get. We then proceeded to research a more efficient greener cooling & heating system in geo thermal and were told if we didn't insulate our attic first we would be loosing 10% of our heat anyway. I'm not sure if you are familiar with geothermal but we were quoted over $40k fir a 3 ton climate master that, when assessed by another guy were told it was nit sufficient to heat our 2800 sq foot home and would constantly rely on stage 3 emergency heat, which would rise our electric bills and defeat the purpose of geo thermal. We never received schedule J calculations either. Our concern is the hea is set up with baseboards on the first level. The house (which we moved into 4 m

    Hi Fencepost, Thanks for the reply. I was looking for the history, what year it was made... the value etc. I have a small collection of floor model fire extinguishers. This particular fire Ex. I acquired from the owner of the home sometime in the 70's of the first permanent settlers of Sarasota Florida (Whitaker). The other models I have are more common and see them on the internet all the time... it's just this one pictured I can't find. If you have or know someone with more info I would appreciate it.
    Thanks
