another lesson learned

from this experience:

don't buy a big system item like that - HVAC, roof, major appliance - from a bigbox, they are not only more expensive, but the products are often built to 'exclusive' [read: inferior] specs for the bigbox store.

Same applies to faucets, bathroom fixtures, etc.

his favor to you was better than you thought!
