I own a small, successful security consulting business. But by day I work for a really big company, doing really big things.

Nothing I write here represents the views of my employer, nor does it reflect any proprietary or confidental knowledge. In fact, practically all of it was written before I even started working there, so don't get too excited.

CLR is very corrosive, which is why they say to spray on and hose off immediately. Better than nothing, I suppose. But definitely not as good as good water treatment.

Yes, my neighborhood has fairly hard water, but nothing like other parts of phoenix. A common component in all of these systems is a filter or treatment step. The CoolNSafe people use a filter that looks strikingly similar to the ones at home depot for use in mist systems. One site I looked at recommended spraying CLR on the AC unit and hosing it off once every 3 mo.

comment How do I fix a hole in a hollow door?
You could help him fix it himself. The quality of the repair will be worse and the time requirement much higher, but he's much more likely to understand how much work he created with his temper. If it works in your house, you may even take the door down and explain that he can't have a door on his room till he helps you fix it.

comment Why don't programmable thermostats automatically switch between “Cool” and “Heat”?
Hm.. mine does. It's optional, though and has to be explicitly enabled.
