    years ago i got into a heated argument with the fellow in charge of
    building maintence where i worked. the window AC unit was ineffective
    having been vented into a compressor machine room. in the summer the
    temperature in there must of been near 200 degrees. the jerk claimed
    that had no effect on the ac operation...

    clearly he was wrong, and either too stupid to realize it or plain
    lazy and didnt want to move the unit. worse the company wanted us
    looking professional in long sleeve dress shirts and ties, in a
    office near 90 degrees..........

    heck they really wanted us in suits.........
     
  4. It "converts" heat, but it doesn't "create" it, it was in the space
    No. Water vapor is not heat. A dehumidifier produces more watt-hours of
    sensible heat than the watt-hours of electricity consumed, the difference
    being the heat of vaporization of the water vapor condensed.

    The sensible heat was no more "in the space" than if you had used fuel or a
    battery to create heat from stored energy.

    This is likely over your head, as it is a matter of thermodynamics that
    takes years of study, and which very few people are qualified to
    understand.

    I use a portable split A/C. If you pay more, you can get portable split
    A/C with an aggregate installed in an external unit. As far as I can
    remember the external unit can not be put outside the house as it is
    raining, otherwise it can be put outside. I put the external unit in a
    small room with open window and additionally put a fan in that room
    directed to the window to blow hot air outside.

  7. Interesting.
    Link/dealer?

    The refrigerant goes thru flexible lines, I gather?

    The only thing that's over my head, is the fact I don't speak or understand
    BULLSHIT.

    Just listen to yourself.

    There are many idiots on the planet.
    However, you're not THAT smart, and others are
    not THAT stupid.

    The sad part is, it probably doesn't even phase the
    people who know you one bit.

    So you need more education... :)

    If the dehunidifier is in the space the power to run it is heat added
    to the space. Any other heat it delivers was in the space already. It
    converts latent heat to sensible.

    The only heat it removes is the energy in the liquid condensate that
    drains away.
     
  12. In some ways, I agree. On certain technical topics, there is THAT much
    of a gulf between wisdom and folly.

    The modern egalitarian culture is that IQ doesn't really matter, because
    not all have it equally. Smart guys who know calculus, physics,
    chemistry, etc., on a sophisticated level are just nerds who have no
    social capacity. This notion is supported by the recent explosion of
    unintelligent people who acquire a little arcane knowledge about this or
    that latest computer gadget, and impress people as somehow smart, like
    children with video games that baffle adults.

    And supported by the fallacies of public education, which hold that we
    are all created equally intelligent (for some mushy definition of
    "intelligent") and that the average child can learn math and science.
    Since the average person does well to even approach algebra, much less
    calculus, "math and science" must therefore be defined down to trivial
    concepts with no practical use in genuine engineering and real-world
    problems, like looking at gee-whiz stuff in "science" museums. If we
    can't disprove the bell curve, then we'll say the bell curve doesn't
    matter.

    So if you're gonna run down those on the upper tail of the bell curve,
    then just make fun of their pocket protectors or whatever, not their
    genuine contributions that make your modern life possible.

    What have YOU done toward genuine contributions that make MY modern life
    possible? Just curious! Invent the pocket protector?

    I have observed that people on the low side of the
    curve quickly revert to personal attacks when
    confronted with ideas they can not comprehend of
    objectively discuss,

    Maybe you should ask yourself the same question

    David, please don't take my comment the wrong way.I certainly didn't intend
    it as a "personal attack" upon RJK.
    I am merely curious about his contribution to the betterment of our lives.I
    will be the first to bow in respect if he has done more than prolong the art
    of crossposting.
     
  18. I've noticed much the same.

    You can't shout down a troll.
    You have to starve them.

    OK, so are you going to attempt to dazzle us with brilliance?? or baffle us
    with more BS??
    How about telling us what you have done toward genuine contributions that
    make modern life possible.
    Have you participated in scientific expeditions that benifited the world at
    large?? or helped develop something that is benificial to mankind?? or
    developed techniques to help clean up environmental disasters??
    Well??? have you??
