Longish story short I'm replacing a relatively new (7-8 years old) unit.

 

What would you do with the old one? 

 

Just Let the HVAC guy deal with it (as in get it out of the basement and take it wherever they take relatively new furnaces )

 

Consensus here? 

 

 

 

Have you considered tying it at around your neck and going for a swim in a deep pool?

Temperatures are warmer than they were 50 or 60 years ago,

 

Let's see some data to back that bs up. Anecdotal evidence doesn't count. I went down to WW a lot in the late 60's, early 70's and it was ****ing hot.

So, about a degree and a half, if that. And that makes so much of a difference that AC is now necessary. What a maroon. :rolleyes:

You can argue about the cause, which I intentionally didn't mention, but arguing with the data is about as rational as arguing with the numbers on a tide table. 

 

Science is true whether you choose to believe it or not. :shrug:

Where did I argue the data? I argued that the minimal amount of change wouldn't be enough to make a difference between needing AC in the 60's as compared to today, you dolt. :dismay: 

And, from what I've read, we are heading into a solar minimum, which is going to make AC obsolete. Better get a better heater, mother****er!!
