Noisy inbuilt vacuum system.

We've been in our house for 3 years and our Monarch 550 has worked like a charm: certainly hasn't broken down yet. If a manufacturer had to be replacing motors…

power boxes

I second what legend80 says - even with three phase both the meter box and the circuit breaker box in the garage have plenty of room left in them.

Evaporative cooling myths

Ouch! The comfort factor at 100% RH at any temperature? People run their (evaporative) A/C to reduce the humidity even at lower temperatures when it is in the 80s and…
