  • Anyone knowledgable about ductless mini-split heat pumps?

    Just from the very low power consumption of the variable speed compressors in the mini split should make it an excellent candidate for solar power...sorry I cant help on the sizing questions.

    I’m just not familiar with the Senville brand..I’d go with LG, Mitsubishi, Sanyo...those are probably the most widely used brands. All will have the equivalent of the Senville units. Support on those brands will be superior, and support can be critical when operating problems arise.

    Of course they will probably be 20% more expensive.

    I have 41 years exp in hvac and have installed quite a few mini splits including several with multi indoor units matched with a single outdoor unit.

    I believe that the mini split could be adapted for an RV although I have not seen that application before.

    The amperage draw for the cooling attained with the “inverter” style mini splits is very low and most act as heat pumps to provide heat in winter. I would recommend a good generator sized for it...I don’t know enough about solar power arrays to advise.

    A couple of things...don’t buy a system off the internet. Contact a local HVAC wholesaler and price them. Warranty parts for systems bought on the net are sometimes impossible to acquire.

    Don’t buy one of Chinese mfg...use Japanese or Korean.

    The enemy of our enemy in this case is our FRiend

    Its been like that forever in both war and politics.

    Obama is the worst thing that has ever happened to this nation. It will take us years to recover.

    The economy wrecked, our foreign policy a joke, the blood we shed in the ME wasted, Israel at risk, amnesty given to illegals, government health care crammed down our throats, 5 trillion in deficits, and personal freedoms disappearing at a rapid rate...and that's in just 3.5 years.

    Jim, Obama has always been the worst choice for America. Worse than McCain, far worse than Romney, even worse than Paul.

    Hardly any Freepers wanted Romney, but he is Obama’s opponent and has been for three months. He is the only viable choice.

    Regardless of his shortcomings, if you love America, you have to support him against Obama. That is the conservative position...Obama cannot be allowed to win. You, along with the rest, are doing the right thing. Some of us have known this for awhile (and caught hell for saying so).

    On another note, I hope the anti Mormon rants will be relegated to the Religion Forum. They have really given FR a black eye. Bigotry (that is certainly what it has looked like) is ugly and unbecoming to Free Republic.

    I understand your personal feelings about LDS, but I’m telling you straight because I care about FR.

    Good luck to us all.

    I said his rating when he left office...not his average rating. If he was such a liberal, he should have been in the Obama zone 55-65% I don't love Romney...he was my last choice. But he is light years better than Obama, whom I am voting against. I want him out of office. PERIOD.

    Regardless, it has nothing to do with the bashing of the Mormon faith that is so rampant here, and that was the main point of the OP.

    I'll reiterate that it is wrong, and should go away. Argue the merits or faults of religion on the Religion Forums and quit denigrating Romney's religion to make it a more effective political tool against him.

    It's already been pointed out that that is a Democrat tactic, not one worthy of FR.

    Most of the Mormons that I'm aware of (that posted on FR), were quite conservative....socially and politically.

    Their are thousands of other sites they can post on for other reasons. I'm sure they were attracted to FR conservative stances.

    Unfortunately, many have been driven off this if we can afford to run off conservatives simply because of their religious beliefs. Grig is just another in a long line.

    So do you have some "license" that allows you to object to other posters religious objections to Mormonism -- but then they can't object to Mormonism on multiple grounds?

    Like I said, take it to the RF. For News and Activism threads, it has gotten really old. Mormonism is being used as a political weapon against Romney and I believe its wrong.

    Are we to go by what you preach ("Thou shalt be tolerant and thou shalt not be bigoted") ... or by what you practice -- your own stubborn bigotedness & intolerance of what Elsie has said about Mormonism as applied to multiple arenas (political/religious/socio-political/religio-political, etc.)???

    The gruesome be headings of some 40 Ute corpses in 1850, heads stacked in boxes,

    and hung by their long hair from the eves of buildings at Fort Utah,

    has long been ignored, “You didn’t see the Indians beheading the Mormons.”

    Mormons have a right to their beliefs in this nation, as long as they are not a physical threat to others. They currently are not. 300 years ago, Christians were burning women at the stake in the name of God, should current Christians be held responsible for that?

    The debate on your beliefs vs. Mormon beliefs is fine if it was confined to the Religion Forum where it belongs. Its not. Your hatred of Mormons bleeds over into every discussion you are involved in here...

    It reflects badly on FR and conservatives in general.

    Intolerance and bigotry (Bigot ) are not conservative or Christian values in my book. Our nation was settled by refugees from just that, and our Constitution reflects it. Early Christians didn't spread their beliefs by confrontation, they spread it by living their lives as Christ would, converting others by example and sacrifice.

    Just because you wrap yourself in the Bible, doesn't mean you are right. Cotton Mathers was considered a great man of God in his day....

    There is a lot of criticism of Romney that is fine, but the constant attacks on the Mormon faith here is sad.

    Romney's religion is attacked as much or more than his positions, and to deny it is bs.

    That's a statement of fact.

    I'm a born again Christian and believe that the Mormon faith is wrong. However, I don't let it poison my view of Mitt or any other Mormon. They live peaceably with me, unlike Islam.

    He's just another politician, and he's remarkably lackluster ~ and there are some fundamental moral questions about him, and that's all typical of just about any politician, but he wants to run for President as the candidate of our party.

    He is our nominee against the worst President of the modern era, a man that is doing his best to destroy the foundations of America. Lackluster, moderate, or whatever...he has my vote and should have yours if you give a damn about your country.

    This is bad news for Obama. He can’t crow about the low price much, simply for the reasons it dropped, and it is a harbinger of things getting much worse before the election.

    Either you’re ignorant of the way our political system works, or you just don’t give a damn.

    I live in a real United States, where you have to be voted into office, and are constrained by the Constitution and your constituents as to what you can do.

    Getting your self booted out of office, in a fight you cannot win, handing all power over to your opponent is not a smart strategy.

    Slowing your opponent, taking small victories where you can, and improving your position of power makes absolute sense.

    Boehner, given the real power to effect change, would do so. We have Ryan with the blueprints, we just have to remove Obama and Reid to get started.

    Both of you are happier blaming Republicans for perceived shortcomings rather than blaming the Dems that deserve that blame.

    The Republican’s only option has been to shut down the government.

    That is nothing more than political suicide, and the leadership knows it.

    They have done what they could to slow the Dems march to socialism...they cannot stop it. That is why Obama, and his Dem minions, have to be voted out this year!

    The massive increases in spending and the deficit remain the fault of Pelosi, Obama, and Reid. They increased the baseline in 2008, and though the Republicans have stopped anything on the scale of another Porkulus, they are nearly powerless to roll back the day to day spending.

    They have tried and been blocked by the Senate in every instance!
