I -- party. He -- morning. Am thinking -- me how that the leopard is doubted that politically in the -- that -- And where and -- that happen all the impact of the -- but it -- -- that -- Portland recently won then he picked. All the wiring was that the Antoine has been the partner above one. -- and I did like it could be. Would -- the illiquid with it and you guys aren't. Into what I was just views actually go on line in -- in it search and you can on the standards that the federal judge took place here in New Orleans probably. You -- two years ago. Where he actually very gave very specific outlines on balls could be included. And obviously -- much are -- involved with that class action -- But the school work that they outlawed with a necklace that seat is written in. Cumbersome from the standpoint hopefully -- -- everything you dress like for instance the copper supply -- The electrical -- war. The electrical devices like switches and outlets. Things you mean I think about like telephone wiring. When low voltage -- thwart the door bell warp your recognition system. Communication watering. Electronics all these things or within that. That class actions in which you can go to action looked antsy with the details of bull was okay -- be replaced. -- That the best yes I mean it it you can you can see all kinds of things pop up on your. -- -- your your research but you know specifically look for that you know that -- -- work that the federal -- and it. In and that was haven't aired it. And correct some of that he did -- -- that vial at a -- at the -- Yeah from it it does address their commissions system as well however I have to say that it. It's been a while since I read that I don't know if it actually addresses the outdoor air conditioning equipment. -- and let me tell you the the rub with is depending on the age of the equipment for the house was that a Chinese drywall. That -- instances may be still operating under the old or 22 retreats. It may not be the new for ten -- refrigerate. And if I was going as far as you war going. And I had the opportunity and resources to do it I would replace. The outdoor equipment for the new were referred to the 410 day if that are used to -- -- in your you know them -- -- game. It. Would be very much are you just have a good weekend stay cool for battery tenure on the on the provisional with Paula grange. I go on and -- water again I'll canyon ought -- HE. Pre Hewitt. That -- -- whole panel that teach the water there expand it trying to let. And herbs by -- thing. You know one thing about that system. Okay -- -- are you looking for the it's new solar AC or you looking for solar thermal. That also heats water. Now picture of what capital they are on the -- just to eat the water at that air conditioning users. What you get out -- -- -- Air conditioning system. -- -- it's not just check the water and air conditioner. Our column that I'm I'm getting a little confused -- I'm saying that it's because typically your commission system doesn't use hot water. Sometimes what happens is there's a he recovered you connect to your recognition. In it would does it takes the waste heat demeaning to keep it takes out the house it puts it heat into a tank or what do you during gives you free hot water. But you're you're -- -- use hot water. It's a you know the system I'll talk muzzled by product if you operating your recognition system in -- are free hot water. But I don't think that's what you describe what you're describing something different. Now that I'll do it and it's fun for how to put it then. I am. And -- hit -- in the effort they put in our view -- and work ordinary thing and -- got more and so look at our new groove. He shot and air -- is. -- -- it's not war. -- you get an. Air condition. Yes Emma I am now I am familiar with what you're talking about a -- -- Arab -- would would. Which -- that same company may be offering you easily separate second. Solar system for a war -- Ottawa but don't confuse the that -- So that the -- recognition systems to get you your your original question. Is something that's come on the market problem last 810 months are and as much as I have read. All the data I've -- case studies. And stay in the technology and how works. I have to tell you that I don't know anyone who's installed these systems long term. Honestly I don't know what a -- -- pass customer. Or person that -- use a third party. You know non vested for a person that it is is you know. Biased to the results. So I really don't know for sure. If that works specifically for our climate in let me explain it to you -- -- what I've been -- -- the last ten years now. Is there are some very high energy efficient. New technology out built where these systems that work rate somewhere -- park on some not so good for a climate. So it's very very specific that we have fun out. The performance data for the air condition system and there's two things on which to look at. It would be how effective that machine removing temperature for your house. In the in the top of the term since he. That -- conditions should do very well for that the second part and probably the more important part for our climate is how effective is they're commission system that removing moisture. From the air that is more -- frost and anything else. Is is that latent removal and I don't know how effective that system is late removal use those things in the exact data or. Form that manufacturers tell you how effective that system is moving party which -- It's a large outlay of money by -- apt to want that pain. Like. But very small apartment because about everyday you get from the state from the federal government. Well something else so what's it looking to pay him because there were some discussion at the legislative session that they are the beginning of the session this year. Where will without really be included or not and I know there's some some. Some marketing there at that says that is. I haven't seen the final result deceit and users not you need to find your CPA and have their research in that you yes disqualify us. Market outlook on EPA. No -- -- for you to do that are what sepia. Is. Our night to remember retired bank -- it. Our here's our W -- pretty general opinion poll this morning is the performers of teen USA in World Cup making a soccer fans. 50% say yes 50% say no give us your opinion by going to our web site -- QL dot com.

Love your shorts in apparently there's a picture of me on FaceBook or somewhere. For the past and it's a group picture but I'm wearing a pair of shorts and a lot of questions about the shorts. Paul here's a text that reads an interior painting to tape or not to take. While that's been a long term question. In the debate that I have done before. I have done both I have to tell you my preference. Is not the tape. And the reason I say that is because most most walls have some texture to it so if you put the tape all along the wall -- -- -- trim up to it. Is because that the tape doesn't go completely flat against the Chirac committed committed uniforms seal because the texture that's present. That the new work paint goes on the tape and you can come back and cut it in buying into anyway so it's got to the point I discuss everything with the brush it don't even tape. And from a kiln Mississippi done you know on the home improvement show and every WL with Paula grange. They call. It more. I have an air conditioning question. I have -- out of four -- -- an outside anti. I -- basic qualities and gain 15100 square foot house and one in the house like freezing cold the other hands. Like him better. Barely coming out of that. So Warner and what could possibly make that happen. I'd done that sounds like very war air flow in it could be. A failure duct system -- -- it is from the ducks got something make -- on top of it collapsed. In May be that. Per is closed and out of the house -- Too much here's can department's cold but they argue that or maybe that the the regional doctors and -- -- -- sized. And most fully -- the install that don't work to give proper air flow meaning. With docs battles are straps in in in make it airtight with mastic. May not really have been done in the third inning in this may be a long term one -- problem. So this really doesn't have much connection to this positive for ten unit is what you're describe to me. It is an air flow problem. So you know sometimes technician guys rule. You you can McCall's name and a a -- -- miles an opposite the first relations -- -- and put in the big unit and that. Sometimes may be the case most not most since he got the right does it use to repair place to dock work. Okay no problem. -- -- can't -- always what was -- 2007.

He could be something simple as that just in the dampers and balancing the system and adjusting air flow. It is and also could be -- to support dot designing needs to be read on court justice at least.

In a text -- is a Sunnis have. -- here is a text that says that can you comment on -- vs copper plumbing for residential new house. Are you whether you use your parents are it'd be better pro pressed right but content. So -- first is copper pipe. The added advantage of copper is that it it's test proven lasts forever. I mean their their houses all over the the world to have copper piping. The disadvantage to it is that it is gets established value in particularly after Hurricane Katrina. A lot of copper was stolen out of a lot of homes just have brought you place from electrical from HTC and and plumbing piping. So tax relief became popular -- -- was in existence much floats sooner than. Then Hurricane Katrina fact. There were times when -- is building. -- -- -- -- used X piping for -- sites they had water wells and had very horse waters. In would you know you interact with the copper piping and and network -- was that we had to use text -- There's nothing wrong -- -- piping I think it's a great product the key is making sure it's installed properly. And it's not the pipe that at the weekly it's actually it connections with the pipe the crypt. That may be all the places could give you problems. There are also some other events of packs over koppers it -- in the freeze is that if walruses topics piping that freezes and actually has the ability to swell. Ever so slightly and that break where copper piping is -- very forgiving. Unlike -- piping so listen there's an advantage is doing it typically it's a little bit cheaper not a lot cheaper than copper. Although with these days with the cost of copper gold at that that may be a more broad of a better argument than in the past. It's it's -- a plumber who's familiar with picks by opening in -- -- -- using art. You have senate -- organ to a more of your -- coming up also more of your phone calls.
