Which one is cheaper hot water baseboard or forced air?
We have a hot water baseboard system and central air. Should we continue with the existing setup or change it to central heat and central air.
P.S: We live in Northern Jersey
What are the costs of replacing the whole heating system?
Thanks for the response but to add some detail we already have Central air in the house .
Question answered by Nicholas
Modern boilers are running at anywhere between 82-90+% AFUE efficiencies. A new boiler could run you anywhere between $4,000-6,000.00 depending on the equipment and the contractor. Forced-Air Furnaces are now running up to 95% efficiencies but those top models could cost more than a boiler. As far as the "quality" of the heat, there is nothing better than hot water. It is the most even and in most cases the most economical heat you can have. If you are very accustomed to the nice even warmth of the radiant heat and lack-of cold drafts that you can get with forced-air, I would recommend staying with the boiler and the separate air-handler for the A/C. If I were to build a new home I would put radiant heat inside any flooring and have a separate air handler for my A/C, humidification and air-purification. This would give me the best of both world's. When all the cards are down it comes down to comfort and cost. I my mind's eye the most comfort for your hard earned dollar will come from hot-water radiant heat. I live in the Chicago-land Area, which is almost the same climate as Jersey. I have over 22-years experience in the HVAC business and I used to be Senior Technician for THE largest family owned and operated heating & cooling company in the United States. I have seen many different homes with many different apps over the years and hot-water will always give you the best comfort and the easiest most affordable options for zoning as opposed to forced-air heat. I hope this was very helpful for you, good luck.
What are the main components of ozonizer?
An ozonizer is a gadget use for water purification. I want to know what are the components of this generator that has the potential to purify water?
Question answered by Dr.A
An ozonizer is a type of water purifier which uses ozone to kill bacteria .
Ozone itself is a form of oxigen trought less stable than common O2.
An ozonizer creates ozone by charging the air with a brust of high negative voltage.
Ozone generating equipment links the oxigen atoms together to make ozone molecular via the reaction :
3 O2 >> 2 O3
Water purification system that takes humidity out of the air and converts it to drinking water?
I have a client who says he sells a Water purification system that takes humidity out of the air and converts it to drinking water. He wants to sell this to businesses with the claim that it will save them money since they don’t have to buy 5 gallon water jugs for their water cooler. Has anyone ever heard of anything like this before? If so is there a website I can check out.
Question answered by m w
pros and cons
First, your talking about water that people ingest. Think of the liability for the company if they are producing their own drinking water for their employees and something goes wrong. Versus using another companies bottled water. Something like the filters or ozone generator fail and you get contaminated water...
Second, when you remove water from the air, the air becomes more dry. To compensate for dry air in the winter months, we usually add water via humidifiers. During the summer months we remove water via air conditioning. if we remove more for drinking water, we MAY have to adjust the air conditioning or add water from a humidifer to make the air comfortable. Sometimes, the relative humidity is high enough that it may actually help to remove water via this apparatus. Depends on the climate and the office conditions.
Third, this equipment uses a condensor and an ozone generating device. Although it claims to be very "efficient", condensors use electricity. So do ozone generating devices. (your home air conditioner is a condenser fyi). The company claims the cost will be as low as 10 cents / gallon to operate the condensor but that actual costs depend on the local utilities. Not sure what to make of that. I'd like to see the specs on the unit before I'd say it would save $.
Fourth, the equipment claims to filter to 0.01 micron, ozonate the water, and remove funny tastes and odors. This means it uses a 0.01 micron membrane filter, a carbon filter and an ozonater. They all sound expensive to replace. probably quarterly for the filters and annually for the ozone generator. Meaning you need a maintenance contract
All that said, it is certainly interesting. If your "distributor ship" accepts the liability for problems, if the cost was low enough per gallon to be attractive to the companies, if the conditions of the office were adequate for the equipment, it may work. Especially in todays world where drinking water companies are being questioned about the source of their water...
Neighbor makes my apartment smell like a 1950's working mans club. What can I do?
I live in England/UK. My new neighbor seems to spend her day going into every room in her apartment and smoking up a storm. I live upstairs from her and every room in my apartment stinks, as she opens her widow and patio door most of the time when I open my window more smoke drifts in. There is just no relief from it. I don't want to go & speak to her in case I get involved in a face to face argument with her, she is smoking her ciggies in her home which is hardly illegal. I don't know what I can do. I don't have large reserves of cash, to buy & run air purification equipment. The Local Council own our apartment. Can I make them do something to our flooring to seal it off, (her flat is privately owned & newly let to her through an agency, about a month ago).It cant be healthy for me, my kids or even our pets. Please help/advise.
Question answered by Rangefinder
I agree with you ...smoke is not healthy for anyone and secondary smoke causes cancer too.
Your in a bad situation and i'm sorry they don't have a smoke free invironment law there to protect people in common areas of multi-dwellings like here in my State in the U.S. I have a small sugestion that might help at not to great a cost. The thing I would do, is try and put a small positive pressure into your apartment. if you have a window or opening somwhere on a side of your apartment that she does not open hers, then you can install a fresh air window fan (designed to mount in any window} which pull in fresh air through a filter. The filter can be changed. If fresh air is pumped in, it places a positive pressure on your apartment and cancels out her air entering. It isn't perfect , because sometimes you open your door but most of the time you will have a positive pressure and it will help. A simple test is to use one of those box fans with about three speeds which only cost a couple of pounds and stick it in a window with it set to blow into your apartment. Seal around it with something like chipboard and tape. Good luck.
How do you liquify air?
What processes are used to liquify the oxygen and nitrogen in air? And what devices are used? And generally just "HOW"
Also, how do you create such low temperatures?
Question answered by Norrie
This is a very condensed (no pun intended), and simplified description of the process.
*...Atmospheric air is first cleaned of ALL solid, liquid and other extraneous matter.
*...It is then compressed, cooled and then Expanded by driving an 'Expander' turbine which rotates at around 50,000 rpm.
*...This tremendous expansion of the air, causes, by the Joules-Thompson Effect, a huge drop in the air temperature.
This very cold air is passed through a heat exchanger where it exchanges heat with the air entering the turbine thereby causing even greater cooling of the expanded air to a point where it liquifies at about -192°C.
*...This is now fed to a 'Fractional Distillation' column where, by the difference in boiling points of N2 (-197°C) and
O2 (-183°C), the O2 remains as liquid while the N2 comes off as a Gas. The liquid O2 is run into a 'Dewar' type, double wall, vacuum vessel (just like a vacuum flask used for cold drinks) but, much larger, where it is stored under atmospheric pressure and
The Nitrogen, being lighter than Oxygen comes off the distillation unit as a gas and is generally stored at high pressure as a gas.
Additional compression equipment may be used to boost the pressure of the nitrogen product after leaving the separation and purification process. Other compression systems will then be used to produce large amounts of additional refrigeration when liquid Nitrogen is required. (Liquid N2 occupies a much smaller volume than compressed N2).
What all do we need to bring on our 2-3 day camping adventure?
My friend and I want to go camping up north in Michigan by taking out my two quads and just driving around and setting up camp anywhere right off the DNR trails. What kind of food should we bring so it will still be good after two or three days? Also what other supplies might we need to take? Thanks for the help!
Also without breaking the bank, were college kids and don't have tons to spend.
Question answered by Hiker Chick
Its always a fantastic adventure to explore the great outdoors. Since you're taking quads you can take any foods you want in an ice chest and be ok. Just be sure to safeguard it from the critters.
As for cooking its a matter of personal preferences. If you cook over a fire it takes longer before you're ready to eat as you will have to let the fire burn down and get some good coals going for your grill. You can literally cook anything over a fire. Just like you use a barbeque grill at home. You can also put pots on the grill and cook just like you would your stove at home. So if you're wanting to save some money in the beginning, you really don't have to invest in a stove and stove equipment at this time.
You'll be much warmer and drier in a sleeping bag with a sleeping pad underneath you than blankets on an air mattress. If you want extra cush or your'e snow camping use two sleeping pads underneath you. Besides your tent, your sleeping bag is the most important piece of camping equipment. If you spend a sleepless night shivering away, your trip is going to be miserable. Check out 3-season-sleeping-bags.com for information on all different types of sleeping bags. Click on any of the pictures to learn more about that particular sleeping bag.
You probably already have a lot of stuff that you can use for camping in your house.
Here's a short list of camping equipment:
Shelter - Tent, poles, stakes, ground sheet
Sleeping - Sleeping bag, sleeping pad
Essentials - Water bottles, waterproof matches/lighter, map & compass, basic first aid kit, whistle and/or signal mirror, nylon cord-50', pocket knife, emergency blanket, extra food, extra clothing, sunglasses, sunscreen, water purification, headlamp or flashlight and extra batteries. Keep these items in your day pack when you go hiking or quading and exploring.
Cooking - Cook set, spoon/knife/fork set, biodegradable soap, scrub pad, food
Base camp accessories - Cooler/ice chest, water bag or large jug, dish pan, paper towels, lantern, storage containers for food, Ziploc bags, large spoon, knife, spatula, can opener, small whisk, small grater, hot pad holders, plate/bowl, cup, cutting board, aluminum foil, spice kit.
Miscellaneous - bandana, camera, binoculars, repair/sewing kit, fishing gear, journal/pen or pencil, reading material, nature guides, trail games, trowel, toilet paper, personal toiletries, lip balm, bug repellant, towel, day pack.
Make sure you take clothing appropriate for the climate you expect to encounter.
Inner Layer - wicking layer: long underwear top & bottom, liner socks, outer socks, t-shirt, shorts
Insulation Layer - Wool, synthetic or fleece shirt/sweater down/fiberfill jacket, wool or fleece pants, gloves, wool or fleece hat.
Protective layer - Rain/windproof jacket & pants, gaiters, hiking boots waterproofed, camp shoes, sun hat.
Happy Trails to you!

Why do people leave their computers on all day?
I have noticed that many people leave their computers on all day for some reason. I would like to know why and if its better or worse for the computer than to just turn it off. Also, is it more efficient to leave it on?
Anyway, the only thing I would like to know is why do many people leave their computers on all day and if you are one of them, why?
Question answered by robin_graves
This question comes up a great deal..
My typical answer is below....
Since your "house" could be a boat in Hong Kong harbour powered with a diesel generator, or a house trailer outside Phoenix Arizona
at a mean temperature of 85 f., each situation is different, and
anyone who follows a " RULE " is not thinking clearly...
Does it damage your computer in anyway to leave it on all the time and NEVER turn it off?
I really get a kick out of the "debate" which has raged on for
years about this topic... it is actually funny.
There are two factions, both well represented here:
1/ your motors in the harddrive and CDs and fans are wearing
out the bearings, and the capacitors are drying out and losing
tolerances, the resistors are losing tolerances from generating
heat, the CRT is loosing its tolerances and burning out the
cathodes, you are using a LOT of electricity, you are vaccuuming
the air and clogging all the parts inside the machine so that
overheating heatsinks and components get even hotter, causing
even more tolerance failures, transient line voltages from brown outs, lightning, power fluctuations from other equipment surging or spiking hits your machine while it is NOT being used, ...
AND the list goes on and on, and is VERY accurate.
Extremely experienced experts run huge computers and Networks with hundreds of computers in large Corporate Buildings 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, with all computers
ON , all the time, and find they have fewer problems, than
if the machines are constantly turned off and on... Turning on
a computer causes a surge of power, and cold resistors and
capacitors and transistors EXPAND with the heat from turning
on, and CONTRACT everytime they are turned off, so that a
constant temperature will lessen premature failure from mechanically induced thermal cycling....
Here is the catch.
I worked in large Corporate buildings with emergency back up
generators providing switchmode 400 cycle mechanical and
battery backup, absolutely thermostatically controlled, humidity
controlled, air, 24 hours a day, with anti-static carpets, specially
designed power distribution, with numerous power distribution,
communications cabling, and electrostatic precautions. The
computers never shut off, and run in electrostatically cleaned,
temperature modified, humidity modified, ionization modified,
air purification channels...
I also see home computers run in large rooms, near huge plate glass windows, which allow the sun to raise the temperature from freezing cold on a winter night, to burning hot on a sunny
afternoon, sitting on a carpet with NO static reduction, with air that changes from swampy steam on a rainy hot afternoon, to dry as a bone ( static magnet ) on a cold winter day, with dogs and cats producing hair balls, people smoking, someone taking a vaccuum cleaner every couple of days and rubbing all over the carpet, and then sweeping the keyboard, the mouse, the printer,
and the outside of the computer with the vaccuum brush, kids randomly pushing the floppy, the CD, the RESET, the ON/OFF
and any other buttons on the front etc. etc. etc.
There is no Battery Back Up, no Ethernet, and Telephone
surge or lightning protector, no regulated power bar. The wall
outlet they are using for the entire computer and components is
on a 15 AMP circuit that powers half the house, so the washing
machine, the TV, vaccuum cleaner, the garage door opener motor, and a dozen other high amperage devices, all DIM the
line, every time they turn on, sending spikes and brown outs
through the computer. Great stuff.
BUT..... These people tell me that the " EXPERTS " say to
leave the computer running 24 hours a day, since it will last
twice as long....
A few of the answers indicate that IFF you have a UPS and
Iff you have surge and AVR and IFF you ..... whatever, then
it is better to leave the computer on 24 / 7, but no one
makes even a CLOSE list to the LONG, LONG, LONG
list of things you MUST do to run a computer 24 hours a day
saftley and properly.
The argument usually involves people from vastly different
situations arguing about Apples and Oranges, as if they were
the same thing....
Prepare a simple list here .....
1/ What is the relative humidity of your air, 24/7 ?
2/ What is the absolute temperature or your air, 24/7?
3/ What is mean, standard deviation and error of the 167 volts
A.C. power supply peak power supply 24/7?
4/ What is micron filtering capacity of your air handling unit, 24/7?
5/ what anit-static compounds are sprayed on or manufactured into all floor coverings used in the " computer room" 24/7?
6/ What surge protection, and AVR protection is supplied to the
computer, and ALL its peripherals, 24/7?
7/ What security measures are affected in the " computer " room
to prevent unauthorized usage or miss-useage by unauthorized personnel 24/7 ?
8/ What are the sampled ION levels in the airflow 24/7?
This is just a teeny, tiny, SHORT list.
Once you have filled it out, then you have a better idea of whether or not you can run your computer.... 24/7 /
FURTHERMORE.... If you go into any computer repair shop,
you will find in the corner a stack of burnt out motherboards, and
burnt out power supplies, all ATX, the new, common standard.
Most of the boards look like brand new on a casual inspection,
and many of the power supplies look perfectly new if opened.
A good number of power supplies, however, when opened will
have a heat resistant resistor and at least one capacitor bloated
split or blown apart. This resistor and capacitor are usually the
5 VOLT VSB supply related components....
The reason for this common failure is that ATX power supplies
and motherboards NEVER TURN OFF. A great many computer
cases now, have NO OFF SWITCH on the back on the power
supply, and people, not realizing this, " turn off " their computers
during electrical storms, thunder storms, tornadoes, etc. and
the front panel lights go off, and the monitor "goes off", and they
think that the computer is " OFF ". It is not off. You can set
an ATX computer to turn on with WOL Wake on LAN, so that
if the ethernet cable signals the ethernet card, the ATX power supply
turns on. The Connector for WOL is on the motherbord. You can set and ATX computer to come with WOR Wake on Ring from
the modem PCI card , so that if the phone rings, the computer
turns on. You can set many ATX machines to turn on with movement of the mouse, or with a key sequence from the keyboard. You can set most ATX computers to turn on at a pre-set clock time. You can check the available options by going into your BIOS on BOOT, by pressing " DEL " or whatever key sequence, and go into the pages of settings.
What people are not thinking is " how can the keyboard, the mouse, the Modem, the LAN, or the clock turn on the computer?
How does the computer " Know " that I moved the mouse?
The answer is that the power supply NEVER turns off, and a
5 volt rail always is supplied to the USB, the Mouse, the Keyboard, and throughout the motherboard. So that when the
computer is "OFF" during a fierce thunderstorm, with brownouts,
spikes, blackouts, phase shifts, and repeated ON/OFF power
fluctuations, the entire computer is subjected to all the "BAD"
power comming in on the 110 volt plug. I get many blown up
motherboards on a regular basis, and the people say " I turned
it OFF during the storm" but now it won't go...
The light on the front of the panel is ZERO indication of whether
an ATX machine is " off ". and .... if you note on most monitors
today, the light never goes off, it just changes colour, since the
low voltage control cirguits are, again always on, and ALWAYS subjected to power fluctuations, spikes, and transients.
The only way to turn off a computer in many instances is to
plug everything associated with the computer into a power bar,
with an ON/OFF mechanical switch on the BAR.
AND, don't forget, of course, ALL buildings, and ALL houses,
around the world, are IDENTICAL, so that there is only ONE
answer to this question, and it is always the SAME answer...
After the first few hundred computers, I sort of got an idea
of some things to do or not do to keep them working.
I hope this analysis gets some people who would otherwise blindly follow a " RULE " to think a bit ... first...
AND,,,, FURTHERMORE.... there is a RULE amongst HACKERS,
who deliberately try to spread the word that leaving your computer on 24 hours a day is " GOOD "... for the hackers that is...
Millions of people around the world have their home computer online, 24 hours a day, with no firewall, no passwords, no security whatsoever, other than the " DEFAULTS " which were shipped with their devices, which the hackers all know.
By encouraging people to have their computers running 24 hours a day, hackers can have complete access to anyone's computer,
anytime they want, and can put hidden, entire virtual harddrives on all these computers, to use them as virtual storage, "WEB" drives. A typical new computer ships with a 100 or 120 or more GIGABYTE harddrive, which the average home user uses only 6 or 8 GIGS. The hackers can install a hidden harddrive on the back end of the harddrive with 80 or 100 gigs of free, online, drive space, WHICH THEY SHARE with all their friends to upload and download software. They can even use the entire computer to help speed up their own web files downloads, by having the " ON, 24 hour a day, high speed connection" of the hacked computer, download parts of the files that they want, so that by using a dozen or more high speed connections at the same time, they can access huge, multi GIG downloads in a few minutes. Great stuff. Most people will never know that their computer is being used 24 hours a day to upload and download Files and store DVD movies, and huge software DC;s and DVD collections, on
the behalf of the hackers. Their computer becomes an excellent source of data storage for a "select " group of people around the world. Not only this, but all the photographs, the downloads, the accounts, the passwords, the connections, the email, is also open to the public, 24 hours a day, and becomes a great source of amusement, -- ( Go to such and such an address to see this TXT file or DOC or download or email etc. ).. Great stuff. ( So and so is having an affair with so and so, or you won't believe this photograph, etc. ) You "want" this stuff online 24/7.
The other reason that hackers WANT your computer online 24./7
is that each time you turn off your computer and reboot, your ISP
( Internet Provider ) assigns your computer a NEW internet connection ( like 169.122.198.097 ), so that the hackers would
be constantly " ANNOYED" in having to re-search your address every time they wanted to " USE " your computer to download
or store files for them... and of course, you don't want to "annoy"
hackers ... so... be nice, help a hacker today... stay 24/7..
Hope this helps add some dimensions to your answers...
What are 6 ways technology made the Civil War different previous from previous conflicts??
Question answered by knight1192a
First of all, look at the primary infantry weapon. The rifled musket. The tactics were still Napoleonic, but the musket of the Napoleonic era was less accurate than the rifled musket and had a shorter range. At the ranges of the Napoleonic era musket, figure the rifled musket of the Civil war was killing and injuring twice to three times as many men in a single volley.
Then there is the railroad. It provided a chance to move troops and equipment over long distances faster than marching. While marching was still the primary means of troop movement to and from the battlefield, the railroads allowed large numbers of troops to be moved hundreds of miles in just a few days if need be. But they also allowed freshly trained troops to be moved from their training facilities far from the battlefields to a point nearer to the army where they could then march to join up with the army their unit was being assigned to. Rather than waiting months for reinforcements to an army to arrive, it might only take a few days. Supplies could also be moved quickly to a supply depot near to the army and then carried overland by mule trains.
Railroads also gave the possibility of mobile artillery. Siege mortars could be mounted on rail cars and move into position quicker than it would take otherwise. They could also be removed when no longer needed or when they came under attack. Because the rail car became a mobile artillery platform, there was no need to limber up to a team of horses with, move to where you wanted to move, then unlimber and prepare the gun before you could fire.
Next turn to the water. The H.L. Hunley was not the first submarine used in warfare. In fact the Turtle was an earlier example of a sub used in wafare when it was used unsuccesfully during the American Revolution. But the Hunley became the first sub in history to successfully attack an enemy vessel. And before the Hunley the Union produced the little known sub USS Alligator, which included an air purification system amoung it's inovations.
On the surface of the water you had the ironclads. Ironclads were not knew in the history of warfare, European navies had used ironclads during the Crimeon War. But it was during the ACW that the ironclad really proved the downfall of the age of the wooden warship. Both the North and South heavily used this new type of naval warship, more and more replacing the older wooden ships with them.
Ironclads of the ACW also brought on another innovation seen still on naval ships to this day, the turret. Compare the armament between the two ships taking part in the first engagment in which a turret was used. The USS Monitor only had a pair of 11" Dahlgren smoothbores mounted in the turret vs. the CSS Virginia (former USS Merrimack) having a pair of 7" rifled cannon, a pair of 6" rifled cannon, six 9" Dahlgren smoothbores, and a pair of 12lb howitzers. The Virginia was very much the traditional naval vessel in terms of it's armament being positioned for broadsides. It had to split it's armament in half, putting half on the port and half on the starboard. But the Monitor could get away with a smaller armament because the turret meant it could aim it's armament in any dirrection it might bee needed in, giving her the advantage as she did not need to jockey for position before she could fire on the Virginia.
Next we turn to the war in the air. And yes, there actually was an areial side to the ACW. Both the North and the South used ballons for aerial observation for a brief period during the war. The observation ballon allowed observes to get an idea of enemy troop movements, using telegraph cables linking them with the ground to tell the commanding general what the enemy was doing.
