So you're thinking of calling another company, good idea. If they tell you the same thing as

So he did do some work for you and confirmed that your system was working to its maximum, but
because it's very hot outside, hot in your attic where you may or may not need more insulation,

I would take it out completely. If it's in a shower I don't think it's even legal. Someone

Why would anyone want a better view of the street in front of their house and the traffic on

Your halogen lamp puts out about 1000 lumens. You're probably not going to find an LED equal,
especially at that size.A couple of things to consider. 110 volts or 120 volts, relative to
