Home Improvement - downsizing radiators
#6
Home away from home
Home away from home


yesterday i happened to be in an apartment in manhattan that was undergoing extensive renovation. i noticed that the large victorian cast iron radiators had been replaced with much smaller cast iron (and less intrusive imo) radiators, given that many houses now have double pane windows and insulation, is it practical to reduce radiator size by 50%, 25%? just wondering...any info, constructive feedback welcome

That doesn't make any sense. Suez is responsible for replacing their meter. Now if the main can't be shut off before the meter, then that would be your responsibility. Check your house, there is usually a valve on the inside of your house but before the meter.

As long as that valve can be shut off for them to replace, it shouldn't be a problem. If you're saying that both your inside valve and the street valve need to be replaced, then you have a pretty large job ahead of you.
i believe the homeowner would be responsible for the house valve, suez would have to pay for the street valve. t=you should talk to a plumber...maybe the plumber can break the concrete so that he/she could freeze the line

Very likely, that is how this car was spotted. Some of the JCPD units have the automatic plate reading cameras installed on the trunk lid. Surely you have seen these before. They look like boxes that point forward diagonally.

Here is what they look like mounted on an NYPD patrol car:

How about instead of Ford Vans they use amphibious buses and skip the tunnel?

lol. i hate trump as much as anyone else but we all know this russia collusion stuff is going nowhere! let's focus on making sure gop doesn't gut healthcare. how do you go from 20 million peole to 32 million people losing coverage (under mcconell's latest plan) and some republicans calling the latest proposal more moderate.

although, of course, the trump-russia collussion drama, just shows how reckless, dangerous the gop is.

Developers break ground on Jersey City micro-units apartment building

The concept of tiny houses has become popular around the country -- even spawning two HGTV shows -- and now developers are trying it with apartment living. 

Nest Micro Apartments will offer fully furnished units that are less than 300 square feet in Journal Square. The building is being developed by KSNY, of New York, and Strategic Properties.

http://www.nj.com/hudson/index.ssf/20 ... eaks_ground_in_jerse.html



$1,300 ?! Incredible and a sorry reflection of how unaffordable life is becoming in the NYC metro area.
but it is furnished and comes with plenty of amenities.

No, Pebble, he retired because many of his patients could not afford Obamacare, they can afford only to pay the fines or the bronze plan, which is no insurance at all.

Arizona had a 116% increase in 2016. Government does some things well, but it is horrible at managing education and healthcare.
ask those people who had no insurance before Obamacare, who didn't go to the doctor, if Obamacare is a mess to them....ask those people who couldn't get coverage due to pre-x conditions

What he says is that while he never used it and was fundamentally against it. He was glad there was a low cost option if he needed it. There will be with the new plan as well.

there might be a low cost option...but what will the deductible be? what happens to the 22 million that stand to lose their coverage!


As I stated in a previous post my deductible is $3200 before Obamacare it was $500
yes, i agree that it sucks that your deductible went up. so, did mine and i had to pay a lot more in taxes but at the end of the day which is better a $3200 deductible or not having access to insurance.


hero, I was replying to your post. You had stated earlier that the new plan might offer a low cost option but at what deductible. I pointed out that deductibles have already shot sky-high.
If a new plan is implemnted and less people are covered and deductibles continue to climb as you state. I will agree that it is a failure
former ceo of molina healthcare on bloomberg says house/senate bills will cut medicauid by 35% and that premiums and deductibles will rise....shifting costs to states will ultimately lead to cuts in other state programs, such as education

health care myth...that being able to sell insurance across state lines will improve access to affordable health care. it might work in northern nj, with people being able to access nyc's network of doctoers, etc...but it is not practical for most people. i'd rather pay more to visit a local dr, instead of one in pennsylvania or even trenton or newark
