Rant:

After I get the low-bid subcontract to manage the place; I'm going
to set aside a special section Down There just for the HVAC folks
who insist on perpetuating that most medieval of units... the BTU.

It belongs in the pile of toxic waste that now holds farthings,
stone, furlongs, and slugs.

Some day, I'll be able to look at EPA Yellow Tags on
water heaters and AC's without grinding my teeth..
