I bought it for 1300. plus a hundred for the outside wall bracket, the cover for the lines will cost about a hundred (a rip off, but it looks much better-though cheaper stuff may be available than what I got).

I got it installed by an electrician (needed for the warranty) for about four hundred- Cuts a hole in the house, attaches it to the wall inside, puts a bracket for the compressor outside and electric box, snaps the compressed lines to the compressor and hooks up the electric to the indoor panel.

I suspect I could have gotten it a bit cheaper.

Most companies want to sell them to you installed. That is anywhere between 2500 to 3500 (depending on the size, area that you want to heat, and the company).

Napoleon pushes their model alot. Even Sears carry them now. Mine is UHF, imported by a firm in Moncton from China and distributed mostly through pluming shops.

It cost me about $100. a day to operate in the winter(depending on the temperature). On cold days it could be a few pennies more.

It works very well for me, as I have a energy efficient house that is open concept.

There is a government grant, but I did not apply for it. To be eligible, you foist have to arrange for an energy audit, that costs from 150 to 175.

What seems to be the difference in various brands is the compressor. There are a few different ones, mostly made in Japan. The warranty can differ, as well as service level). My indoor unit is warranted for two years and the compressor for five-hich is about standard.

(BTW, the previous post with its all-caps is a simple cut-and-paste; it isn't meant to be a howl.

But here is a bit more Alaskan weather. If they think Cordova has it bad, take a look at Valdez:

ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) ? Another Prince William Sound community could argue it's been hit even harder with snow than Cordova this winter.

Valdez normally has 149.7 inches of snow by this time of the year. This year, the National Weather Service says Valdez has had 318.4 inches of snow-- or 168.7 inches more than usual.

Valdez resident Kathryn Hawkins says the scary part is it's only mid-January.

There's three more months of snow to be had in Valdez, and she has no idea where it's going to go.

If there's a plus side to all this snow, her 12-year-old son Trevor has found it

There's so much snow, it up to the eaves of their house, and he's spending a lot of his free time sliding off the roof into their yard.

Here is today's "Special Weather Statement." Since early December we've had a mild winter- but it appears that is ending.

The mentioned winds are our 'Taku winds' that consist of strong, swirling winds straight off the icefields that surround us, while the air is clear, the sky sunny, and temperatures range from minus zero to about 10 above. Each incident of Taku wind lasts anywhere from three days to two weeks. They can be brutal, as they were last winter.

THE WEATHER PATTERN ACROSS SOUTHEAST ALASKA WILL TURN VERY COLD AND WINDY STARTING LATE FRIDAY NIGHT AND PERSIST THROUGH NEXT WEEK.

A STRONG HIGH PRESSURE CENTER WILL BUILD OVER THE YUKON FRIDAY NIGHT AND THE NORTHERN PANHANDLE SATURDAY. THIS HIGH PRESSURE WILL SEND VERY COLD ARCTIC AIR ACROSS THE AREA CAUSING TEMPERATURES TO FALL THROUGH THE DAY FRIDAY INTO THE 20S OVER THE NORTHERN AREAS AND LOWER 30S OVER THE SOUTHERN AREA.

TEMPERATURES WILL CONTINUE TO FALL THROUGH THE WEEKEND WITH HIGHS RANGING FROM THE SINGLE DIGITS OVER THE NORTHERN THIRD OF THE PANHANDLE TO THE MID 20S TO MID TEENS OVER THE SOUTHERN THIRD. LOW TEMPERATURES WILL RANGE FROM BELOW ZERO OVER THE NORTHERN HALF TO LOW TEENS OVER THE SOUTH THIRD.

THE COLD AIR WILL PERSIST INTO NEXT WEEK AND HIGH TEMPERATURES WILL RANGE FROM SINGLE DIGITS OVER THE NORTHERN HALF AND NEAR 20 OVER THE SOUTHERN HALF. LOWS WILL REMAIN BELOW ZERO TO SINGLE DIGITS. PEOPLE SHOULD TAKE ACTION TO KEEP PIPES FROM FREEZING SINCE MANY LOCATIONS ACROSS SOUTHEAST ALASKA ARE SNOW FREE.

Alas the freeze up didn't last long, periodic precip. continues to make the back yard and walking trails a mess. So I've been cleaning up muddy feet and tummies again for at least 10 days, which feels like forever. Today's wet sloppy snow and temperatures just above freezing will make everything an even BIGGER mess. Oh. Yippee.

I keep telling my husband we're going to retire to somewhere north enough to get reliable real winter every year, north of 60 if that's what it takes! This time of year is supposed to be my break from dog-related laundry (towels over the back of the SUV to collect dirt & mud, towels by the front door for dirt & mud, towels by the back door...) but no real respite yet this year. I don't usually complain about weather but this is getting annoying.

Where's my winter?? I WANT MY WINTER!! Wahhhhh!!

Ahem, thank you, I feel much better now.

Things are still green here east of Toronto but I'm relieved all is FINALLY frozen! That "fantastic weather" nets me 14 filthy things for each day it lasts:
12 paws sometimes muddied right up to the elbows & knees, plus
2 bellies.
It's nice that one of our 3 dogs is a large standard poodle, plenty tall enough that he never splashes mud up onto his tummy hairs. While the dogs themselves are thoroughly indifferent to the cold mud (two seek it out and shove their heads into the mud of the creek banks during warm weather), I get the task of cleaning them up before they come back in the house.

[groan] It's supposed to get warm again tomorrow so I'll be back to cleaning up mud for a while. I have one question: Where the heck is that snow?? I need snow!! Ahh, the joyful thought of 12 clean feet and 3 clean tummies...

At the moment in Bristol UK it is quite mild for the time of year after just one or two mornings of a slight frost (we escaped the snow that fell elsewhere) it looks like that the temperatures might go to double figures in the run up to Christmas. The weather has been strange since April up in temperature one minute and down the next, heatwaves in October, the winter so far is nothing like the severe snow of last year or the year before.

First frost for much of northern New England last night, so Indian Summer has begun. There wasn't frost here in the city, but I'm sure the tomatoes are done in the local farms. I saw a monarch (butterfly) yesterday, and there'll be a steady flow for the next few weeks. My Seven-sons tree/shrub (at 15 feet tall it's hard to think of it as a bush, but it has multiple weak stems that arch over a diameter of about 30 feet) is in full bloom. The monarchs gather in the afternoon on it, and in the morning they'll warm up and be gone. It's time to watch for hawks moving south. And the local goslings are now flying around. They'll be gathering in flocks soon, flying in circles, and then move south. The northern geese are quieter, and they'll arrive later. We're the breeding grounds for one group, the "southern" wintering grounds for another, so there are always geese here.

A day or two ago, local reports were that the 116F (46.7C) at Hutchinson KS - about 50 miles west from us, was the "highest in the nation."

Wichita reports 20 days of >100F daily highs in June, which is a bit more than usual for that early in the warm season, and those were not all strictly consecutive. (A couple of 98s crept in.)

Forecast is for another week of mostly similar, depending on w-i-d-e-l-y s-c-a-t-t-e-r-e-d cloudiness. It sounds like the weather radar is showing 10 or 11 droplets floating over Kansas, but they can't predict where (or if) they'll fall.

Last night's local TV had a picture sent in by a local resident showing that the (structural plastic?) post holding up a mailbox had melted and bent about 90 degrees off plumb. (All that bulk mail advertising probably contributed?)

(Ours is on a wooden post, but I haven't seen any indication of combustion - yet. Maybe I should go out an wet it down?)

Well, I'll be kicked! As my father used to say.

Turns out that we had beautiful weather for the parade (just ended), sunny, a little breezy, no rain. Don't know what will happen the rest of the day; showers are forecast. The only times I've ever gotten sunburnt in Juneau was on July 4ths- could happen again, I guess.

And last night's fireworks went off fine. The spokesman was quoted as saying that they prefer clouds at about the 1500 foot level, (which is what we had) that it makes the sky darker so the bursts are brighter, and also because a cloud cover holds the blasts better so they are louder.

So I guess it is the best of all possible worlds. :)

We always have our Independence Day fireworks at midnight the previous night (At midnight it's as dark as it's gonna get) but most likely the clouds will affect the spectacle. They are hanging pretty low.

A new record for the 02 July date appeared for Phoenix Arizona yesterday: 118 F (47.8 C). The report at msnbc pictured people at the town jail - the "Tent City Jail" - trying to keep cool under the canvas.

Of course there will likely be a few warmer days there next month, as it's still early in the summer season.

My town (Wichita KS) has bent the record for "consecutive days above 100F in July," currently reporting it as 13 days straight in the nearby counties, with another few expected before the string breaks off for a couple of days; but we've had a (rather sparse) sprinkle or two to take the edge off the heat.

The "real record" for consecutive >100F day stretches in Wichita was in August a few years ago, when I believe we ran something like 42 days in a row. I recall helping a few old ladies (mostly 20-somethings, I suppose' but I was only about 17 then so they looked pretty "mature") across the street because the asphalt pavement got so soft it sucked their shoes off. (I picked a small one to carry, but a couple of other "leaners" needed help prying their shoes out.)

So far in Bristol June has given us the April showers we were supposed to have had back then. One minute it's sunny the next it's a downpour so much for scaremongers here who predicted a drought. But then again Glastonbury is coming and you can't have a fest without the mud.

We just finished the third day of perfection: Temp right at 70F, light breeze, bright sun- enough to make me seek the shady side of the street- people lying in the sun, sleeping on the grass.

Very confusing to our cruiseship touri- people with their heavy jackets tied around their hips, hair tied back off the neck. This is not the kind of weather they were warned against.

If our weather was like this half the time, we'd have a million people trying to live here. So thanks be that we don't...

The weather? As Shane says, "It keeps flippin' changin'!"

But I bet if it stayed exactly the same, he'd complain about that too. ;-)

On the whole, it's been pretty good. But cooler than average this summer.

FANTASTIC!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I have never heard such moanin and groanin in my life on the first day of summer. Everywhere I went yesterday... Enjoying summer? Are we gonna have summer this year? I've never seen anything like this. Etc, etc, etc.

Max temp yesterday was 14.7 and I AM LOVIN IT! Sure better than last year when we went from winter to summer in an hour and it was nasty hot and humid (for what I am used to, of course) well into the fall.
