Square BTUs? Sizing heating systems based on the homeowner's couch? Bleeding a hydronic system with a fitting that drains through the exterior wall? What's going on here?
These are some of the heating contractor "cheats" in the "darn good stories" blog category on heating guru Dan Holohan's HeatingHelp.com website. Homeowners would call them horror stories, but they are pretty entertaining. The story about the Chihuahua is worth the price of admission (just an expression - the site is free).
