Is it a normal thing to find a new air conditioner to be without gas during delivery?
The dealer and the service engineer says so.
the dealer is not ready to take it back.

depending on the style and size --- yes very normal -- the ones at the stores usually dont hold much but an industrial size one usually gets serviced upon installation
Why are immigrants given such a big hand of help from the USA Government and Americans are going hungry?
We have huge levels of poverty and the kids go hungry and not enough clothing. Their parents' jobs have been given away by Washington. But to train them in the running of Motels and Gas/Service Stations is given to the Indians ( India) with enough money to even buy the businesses.
The illegals are draining our resources for enabling and helping Americans.
I would just like to know why the ones that have paid into the system can't get help when we need it????

Illegals have been banned from Gov't benefits since 1996 when Congress passed (and President Clinton signed) the welfare-reform law known as the Personal Responsibility and Work Opportunity Reconciliation Act..Yeah looks great in print but it does not mean very much in 2011. Illegals are also ban from collecting in state tuition under Clinton's immigration reform act of 1996 but states ignore that ban and that law and gave illegals in state tuition anyway. •Illegal immigrants are not “undocumented.” They have fraudulent documents such as counterfeit Social Security cards, forged drivers licenses, fake “green cards,” and phony birth certificates. Experts suggest that approximately 75 percent of working-age illegal aliens use fraudulent Social Security cards to obtain employment.•Illegal immigration and high levels of identity theft go hand-in-hand. States with the most illegal immigration also have high levels of job-related identity theft. In Arizona, 33 percent or all identity theft is job-related (as opposed to identity theft motivated simply by profit). In Texas it is 27 percent; in New Mexico, 23 percent; in Colorado, 22 percent; California, 20 percent; and in Nevada, 16 percent. Eight of the 10 states with the highest percentage of illegal aliens in their total population are among the top 10 states in identity theft (Arizona, California, Florida, Texas, Nevada, New York, Georgia, and Colorado).
•Children are prime targets. In Arizona, it is estimated that over one million children are victims of identity theft. In Utah, 1,626 companies were found to be paying wages to the SSNs of children on public assistance under the age of 13. These individuals suffer very real and very serious consequences in their lives.
•Illegal aliens commit felonies in order to get jobs. Illegal aliens who use fraudulent documents, perjure themselves on I-9 forms, and commit identity theft in order to get jobs are committing serious offenses and are not “law abiding.” •Illegally employed aliens send billions of dollars annually to their home countries, rather than spending it in the United States and helping stimulate the American economy. In October 2008 alone, $2.4 billion was transferred to Mexico.
•Tolerance of corruption erodes the rule of law. Corruption is a serious problem in most illegal aliens’ home countries. Allowing it to flourish here paves the way for additional criminal activity and increased corruption throughout society.

What do the artificial coals sit on? Mine seem to be on three ceramic type grids?
I have an old propane gas fire. But, at the annual servicing the engineer says it needs one or more of the grids on which the coals sit replaced and the company no longer make spares for it.Help!!
Question answered by pipe strangler
Suggest you obtain the make/model and if possible the GC number and contact manufacturer to check availability. If they are available some will supply direct other you will need to go to the likes of Parts Center or PTS spares branch. If they are unobtainable only thig you can do is replace the fire.
What is the cheapest way to heat a house which doesnt have a gas supply?
Im a gas safe registered engineer so I have no experience in electric heaters. There is no gas in the street so getting it piped up is not an option. I dont know if panel heaters are cheaper then storage heaters etc. Ideally im more interested in the running cost but at the same time solar panels are to expensive to install. So im looking for a realistically cheap install with the lowest running cost possible.
Question answered by Peter W
Cheap install and lowest cost-to-run are more-or-less contradictory.
In rank order for central heating systems:
a) Super-high efficiency condensing Propane Heater (boiler or forced air). The cost-per-BTU for propane and oil is about the same, but propane-fired heaters are more efficient than oil-fired heaters in general.
b) Oil-fired super-efficiency heater (boiler or forced air). Only slightly more expensive than propane due to the lesser efficiency.
c) Electric baseboard heat: Least expensive to install by far, but will require a larger electrical service (at least 200A) if for the whole house. Has the virtue of individual thermostats for each room, but electric heat is generally about 40% more expensive than oil or propane all other things being equal.
d) Solid-fuel-fired systems. Generally those that can be adapted for central heat are far more expensive than traditional wood, pellet or coal stoves that heat a room or two. And generally those types support radiators rather than forced-air, although there are both sorts on the market as well as heat-exchanger systems to go from one to the other. All expensive. Automated pellet or coal systems are also expensive and still require much more attention than liquid or gas-fueled systems. And, unless you get very-nearly-free solid fuel, it is no cheaper than propane or oil in a central heat application, as well as being much less efficient overall. But, heating one or two rooms at a time is very nearly always cheaper than heating an entire house whichever choices are made.
Electric heat - cheapest to install, most costly to run per BTU delivered. But can be individualized to the need of each room - That is what I would suggest if you cannot afford a top-notch fuel system. Less-than-the-very-best when installing new fuel-fired systems will be very costly in the long run as the greatly lowered efficiency will eat up the savings of fuel over electricity very quickly.
Can an Electronics and Instrumentation Engineer work as a Building Services Engineer?
I'm finding it difficult to get a job in oil and gas companies as there are very few of them at my current location, but a lot of general contracting construction companies. So do you think its a good idea? I mean, of course the oil and gas field is much better than the construction industry, but i cant shift to any other location. Do you think luckily if i get a job now, will it be a problem after i get a few years of experience? I could really use your opinions based on your experience.
Question answered by smahadevan39
As you do not want to go out of your place, you may join the construction company. Basically you are an engineer, hence with your interest and attitude you can easily fit into this job.
The gas stove flame is more orange than blue?
Is there something wrong with the stove? Nothing is dripping on the gas stove.
Thanks to all you who answered this questions, you were all tremendously helpful!
Question answered by gizmolang
from gas engineer - your flame should be blue so a mostly orange flame means which means their is incomplete combustion happening, your stove is not burning the methane properly which means there will carbon monoxide being released in to your kitchen which is very dangerous do not attempt to work on cooker yourself as other people have said as you must be competent to do so as you have asked this question you are not it is against gas safety regulations for you to do so get a gas service engineer around asap its important you get someone in. hope i have been of help to you
What is a reasonable price to pay to have a gas bolier and tank replaced?
Need to replace a 20 year old gas boiler and also have new tank and upgraded pumped system. Involves a lot of pipework.
Question answered by Lady G-force
We have just had three quotes for replacing a gas boiler and servicing the radiators, and they were £2,500, £2,850 and £3,600 (inc. VAT). This is for a combination boiler (which means you don't then need a separate hot water tank) and also includes proper cleaning of the pipes and radiators before fitting the boiler ('powerflush'), as well as fitting a Magnaclean filter afterwards. Both of these are very important if you are having a new boiler fitted. (Over time, black iron oxide sludge builds up inside from corrosion of the metal and this affects the performance of the boilers, especially new, efficient ones.) The price also included new valves for the radiators.
If you need new radiators and pipework, that will add onto the cost (but maybe they can just be internally cleaned/flushed and have new valves fitted?).
By the way, make sure you get an installer that is both gas-safe registered and also is accredited by the manufacturer to fit the brand of boiler, and that you get a good warranty (ie. five years). You can find a local gas-safe plumber by checking the gas safe register:
How can I store hydrogen gas into a pressurized tank using a home compressor?
I have made a fuel cell that can produce 2 liters of H2 per minute. I am wondering how i can take that gas and pressurize it into a LP tank from a forklift. I have an extra air compressor to fully commit to doing this on. By using an LP configuration on my vehicle I would like to burn H2 gas. How can I pressurize it into a tank.
Question answered by Exomerlin
Burning H2 is a bad idea in free air. Oxides of nitrogen are very toxic and not recommended for human consumption even in several parts per billion. Please exercise your ability to research this subject thoroughly before you proceed.
NO / NOx is one of the reasons that catalytic converters were mandated on standard IC engines.
Your air compressor will probably not compress the gas without very high risk of explosion. Turbine type compressors and super cooled condensers are normally used in hydrogen plants rather than piston type actions. The seals will allow too much blow-by because of the small hydrogen molecules. Oil may contaminate quickly causing excessive heat and detonation.
An LP configuration will run too rich to allow the engine to operate. It just wont work without dangerous modifications. Compressed hydrogen above 4 psi poses a huge danger unless you encase your tanks in fibreglass. Please study this carefully. I don't want to read about your demise in the wire service because of a mistake you made in your engineering.
how long does it take british gas home care engineers to turn up?
Why can't British Gas give you an individual appointment instead of saying they will be there between 8am and 6pm?
Question answered by Roy <
Because they run it as a profit making venture as opposed to a customer service.
I'm no longer with them following two failed appointments (took 2 days off work) and a week of no heating. Priority is given to the elderly and children.
