  • Modern heat pumps work down to -30C, at which point the furnace supplements with electric heat which is built into the unit.

    My electricity costs dropped 50% over my builder-grade piece-of-shit electric furnace & AC unit – and I even increased from a 2 ton to a 2.5 ton system. The initial cost was about $12k, and it will take 8 to 10 years to break even, less if the cost electricity keeps increasing the way it has over the last 10 years.

    Also, you may not want A/C now, but you will shortly – heat waves are getting more severe each year.

  • Par for the fucking course. Remember how his crackhead brother cost Toronto nearly $100M in cancellation fees, wasted work, and then probably hundreds of millions more in lost productivity by writing a one page memo on mayoral letterhead cancelling Transit City?

    It infuriates me that people think conservatives are good with money. They burn through hundreds of millions in utter and complete bullshit while championing ‘efficiencies’ and burning the system down from the inside.

  • Its advantage, strictly speaking, is that it is not correlated very much with stocks, bonds, real estate and other things people owe.

    Not that the bot made a mistake, but this is wrong…

    Gold drops like a rock when markets take a shit. It usually bounces back quickly – often before stocks recover, giving you a chance to buy cheap on the dip, and sell at a profit three months later, and pick up some of the stocks that haven’t recovered yet… But it VERY MUCH moves in sync with the market during times of crisis.
