I just had an experience that shows you why you probably should pay to get a licensed HVAC contractor to evaluate the systems during your due diligence of buying a home.  My buyers' inspector found the HVAC systems to be 11 years old but the systems seemed to be working the way they should.  The ...

  Walter Williams is one of my favorite economic writers.  His recent column is a classic. "Suppose I saw a homeless, hungry elderly woman huddled on a heating grate in the dead of winter.
